Parents, we’re starting a new series about thankfulness, and we want you to know: we’re thankful for YOU. Thanks for your faithfulness, support, and for letting us partner with you in teaching your kids about God!
Here’s what’s coming up in our ministry . . .

THANKS!: A 4-WEEK SERIES ON THE WILDERNESS
“Thank you.” It’s one of the first phrases most of us learn to say, but it’s also one of the most difficult things to say and really mean! That’s true for us today, but it was true for God’s people in the Old Testament too. After they escaped the land of Egypt, the Israelites spent forty years wandering through the wilderness on their way to the promised land. While they wandered, they struggled to remember all of the ways God had provided for them (kind of like we still do today). In this 4-week series, kids will discover that we can thank God for so much — for providing for us, for being God, for giving us wisdom, and for never giving up on us.
Research shows that kids laugh an average of 300 times a day. The average adult? Only four times a day. If you want to connect more with kids and have more joy and gratitude, look for opportunities to laugh with your kids.
If you’re subscribed to Grow Your Ministry, now would be a good time to attach Parent Tip Video #10 from your Parents section.
It can be hard for kids to have a selfless, grateful heart that thinks of others first, especially in a “me-first” world. We love this Thankful Journal that encourages kids to write down things every day that they are thankful for.
