Bible Verse: Luke 10:27: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul. Love him with all your strength and with all your mind.”

IN THE CAR: Ask your child what happened in class this week on the drive home, here are some questions to chat about:
I heard one of you got blindfolded for a game during the lesson, what happened?
How would you feel if you were blindfolded and you had to follow directions?
Whose voice would you trust to listen to if you were blindfolded?
Do you think Mom and Dad trust God enough to listen to his voice and obey like your blindfolded friend today?
What do you think God is asking you to trust him with? What are you going to do about it?
Next week we are beginning a new curriculum in our grade school class. You can download an app and every week you can get progress on what we learned in class and continued encouragement for you!

Trouble getting your kids to listen? It might be easier and a more peaceful a process than you think!
