ALL GOOD THINGS COME FROM HIM
Using the Trust Flash Cards, have the children prepare to build or create something. For example, you can have them create something with various Legos, various colors of modeling clay, large marshmallows and stick pretzels, or they can even create a healthy trail mix.
Keeping their supplies in separate containers to eventually be distributed to them, show them in advance an example of the finished work. Before handing them each of the supplies, ask them, “What will we need to build (create) this?” As the children answer, you can then ask them, “Who needs a ____.” (fill in the blank with one of the items you chose to build with). When the children raise their hands, remind them that Father God is a good, heavenly Father and provides for their needs joyfully.
Next, have them repeat after you one of the statements on the flash card and then give each child that item. Do this process again with the next item needed to build their creation, until they have everything they need to create their creation.
This exercise will reinforce to the children who their Father God is, how He hears their prayers, how all good things come from Him, and how He delights in meeting all their needs. This will develop trust in their hearts for their God. You can even have the children take turns in pretending to be Father God and have the children ask that child for what they need.
During the first three years of life, trust is established, identity is shaped and the mind developed. This series of ten identity-filled flash cards focuses on trust as your child learns that they can trust their God who is 100% true and 100% good. These cards can be printed and laminated for hands-on use or viewed on any PDF supporting digital device.

I had quite the funny experience with my three-year-old yesterday and I thought surely there is a blog for this moment. This morning when I woke up, I asked Holy Spirit what the title of the article should be, and I immediately heard, “what goes in must come out!” I burst into laughter thinking “very funny Jesus,” as the experience that I am about to share with you has to do with potty training. With 18-month-old twins and a baby on the way, I have been quite determined to make sure our oldest, Judah—who just turned 3—is fully potty trained before our little princess gets here. (Because let’s be honest FOUR children in diapers at once is A LOT!!!) Judah has done a great job in his learning process and has really been receptive to the reward system that we have used as a motivator. However, we have been facing the hurdle of getting him to go “big potty” (number two) on the toilet.
Throughout over 30 years of ministering identity and destiny to children, we have put together many prayers, identity statements, and tools to empower and speak truth into precious young lives. Here we have the privilege of being able to offer some of these resources just for YOU to minister life in your very own home.
Through this simple, but powerful lesson plan, teach your children the authority that they have over the enemy and how they have the power to choose what they will allow to affect their heart and soul.
