Kids really say the funniest things! When my niece was doing a History reading, she came across the word “Saint”. She asked my sister what a saint was. My sister told her it’s someone who does good things for God. Then my niece said, “Oh, that’s me!”
“To all that be in Rome, beloved of God, called to be saints: Grace to you and peace from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ.” Romans 1:7 (KJV)
I saw this the other day on Christine Caine’s Instagram. It’s too cute! Mila talks about her experiences at the gym. It looks like Miss Mila has quite the camera personality by the looks of all her cute videos on YouTube!
“At that time Jesus said, “I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children.” Matthew 11:25 (NIV)
I’m not bossy! I have skills…leadership skills!! Understand? So…my mom sent me this picture this week saying it was “sooooo cute!!!” Then she added, “It reminded me of you” followed by some laughing and winking emojis and a “Sorry!” Thanks mom. I guess I have been known to have “leadership skills” though. After all, I am the first born of 5 children, so maybe it’s a first-born thing??
“Don’t be bossy to those people who are in your care, but set an example for them.” 1 Peter 5:3 (CEV)
A friend and I were talking the other day about our messy kid problems. I started digging through some old photos to show her just how bad my messy kid problems got at one point. So…I was cleaning out my daughter’s closet one time, and when I finally got to the bottom I noticed this little T-Rex dinosaur fossil toy. Just as I was reaching down to pick it up I remembered, “Wait…She doesn’t have a T-Rex toy!?!?”
Yep…it was a dead mouse. Totally decomposed already. Things LITERALLY DIE in her room!!
“These also shall be unclean unto you among the creeping things that creep upon the earth…the mouse…” Leviticus 11:29 (KJV)
Don’t you just love the humor of kids? A friend of mine had a student turn this in recently. Ah, the difficult life of a caravan camel…and of an elementary student identifying sentence fragments! The struggle is real!
“She arrived in Jerusalem with a large group of attendants and a great caravan of camels loaded with spices, large quantities of gold, and precious jewels…” 1 Kings 10:2 (NLT)
This hilarious 3 minute video of Christmas according to kids has been quite popular on the internet this month. Southland Christian Church did a great job of acting out the children’s version of the Christmas story! The reenactment is spot on to the kids’ retelling! Take a few minutes to watch this clip and you might learn something new 🙂 …like maybe how Mary must have been doing laundry as the angel approached her or how she and Joseph ventured to Bethle-ha-ha-ham.

“They asked Jesus, “Do you hear what these children are saying?” “Yes,” Jesus replied. “Haven’t you ever read the Scriptures? For they say, ‘You have taught children and infants to give you praise.'” Matthew 21:16 (NLT)
