Parents
At one of your dinners this week, have each family member participate in the prayer by thanking God for one specific thing on their plate. You could even take advantage of one of the last warm evenings we have this year and plan a family picnic!

Birth – Age 2
Everyone desires polite children; however, manners have to be modeled and taught! Encourage and remind your children to say “thank-you” (verbally or with sign language) often.

Age 3 – Kindergarten
Sit down with your children and make a list of all the things you are thankful for. See how long you can make it! Then, encourage your children to draw pictures of some of the items. Hang the list and their pictures on the refrigerator or in their bedroom so that you can be reminded of God’s provisions often and remember to thank Him for specific things when you pray.

We are celebrating!

“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” Romans 8:28 (NIV)

The Bright Beginnings Community is celebrating the Giroux Family Reunion this week! We are so grateful that Brody is home with his Mom and Dad.  We rejoice in the way God has been at work in this difficult situation, and the Truth that God is at work in each one of our lives.  We give all praise to God who works for the good of those who love him!  And we love you too—Brian, Billie, and Brody.

When you can’t trace His [God] hand trust his heart. [Lyrics from Babbie Mason’s song: “Trust His Heart”]
