Parent’s Corner- February 3, 2019
“Behold, how good and pleasant it is when brothers dwell in unity.” Psalm 133:1
As the mother of three boys, I have meditated on this verse often! Over the past two days, with wind chills in our area hovering around fifty degrees below zero, we have certainly had a lot of together time!
One of the features I love most about our Sunday school curriculum is that all of our elementary classes study the same passage each week. This makes the “what did you learn in Sunday School today” questions around the table that much easier! Did you know that there is also an additional resource available to parents . . . a Family Devotional that allows families to study the passage taught on Sunday morning throughout the week? If you are interested in learning more, I’d be happy to speak with you. “Dwelling” in and meditating on a Scripture passage together can have such sweet and long-lasting results.
May you find joy in your parenting this week!
