C is for Character
The lesson this week in Bright Beginnings was: Have a good attitude!

Verse:  Be strong in character and ready for anything! James 1:4
Story:  Daniel 6: 6-23 “Daniel in the Lions Den”
Prayer: Dear Jesus, help me to have a good attitude in everything I do. Help me to trust in you so that I will be ready for anything. Amen.

Here are some ways to take the lesson home this week!

Parents
You are a model of Christ to your child. Pray with your child daily, teaching them to say “thank you” to God. Children will learn to trust in Jesus by watching you. And remember, you can do this in Christ’s strength–not your own (Philippians 4:13).

Have your child help you act out the story of Daniel and the lions. Ask them to roar like a lion while you pretend to be Daniel. (You can even make a little blanket fort as your cave)! Kneel on the floor with your hands folded and pray.  Show your little one how to trust in God so that they will be ready for anything!

Age 4-Kindergarten
Invite your child to help you with a simple chore around the house, then sing a song as you do it together. Remind them that God wants us to have a good attitude in everything we do, and singing can help us do just that! What else shows that you have a good attitude? See what your child comes up with (smiling, sharing, helping others).
