WONDERFULLY MADE TO DO WONDERFUL WORKS
Using the My Body Flash Cards, print out a picture of each of the aspects of the body featured on the flash cards (i.e. mind, feet, eyes, ears, hands, mouth). Tape each of the pictures to different areas of the room. Tell the children you are going to read a statement from the flash card, and they have to quickly find the part of the body that it belongs to, by going and standing next to its picture.
When they are ready to begin, read one of the statements from the first flash card aloud. Have the children quickly run to find the picture it applies to, and then stand near it in that area of the room. Once the children have decided where they are going to stand, read the statement aloud again and have them repeat after you. Then ask them, “What part of YOUR body does this belong to?” Once they answer you, encourage them by saying, “That’s right, your ____ does this!” Then have everyone give an exuberant cheer!! Continue the exercise by reading a statement from a different flash card, and having them again go and find that aspect of the body, and so on.
In this exercise the children will not only learn what each of the parts of their body were designed to do, but also that they are a part of a community of people who have the privilege of using their bodies in this way!
The My Body Flash Cards include 12 colorful flash cards each featuring an aspect of the body (mind, feet, eyes, ears, hands, mouth). Each card has first person statements of life-giving truth to be spoken aloud by child or caregiver. My Body Flash Cards are a great tool for interactive teaching while speaking truth into a child’s life at the same time! Cards can be printed and laminated for hands-on use or viewed on a 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.
