Teaching our kids to give thanks
By: Matt Deane
We may have our share of ups and downs, but overall we live very blessed lives here in Eastern Iowa. A warm place to stay, clothing and more than enough to eat are just the tip of the iceberg. We all have so much to be thankful for! To our kids, the many blessings we have can seem normal, and it’s up to us to teach them that all of these things are gifts from God.
I found a website today that has an easy way to begin to teach our kids to be thankful…a Give Thanks journal! It includes pages for your kids to write about the things they are thankful for and Bible verses that remind them of God’s blessings. The best part…it’s free!
