BE A BLESSING
Using The Father’s Blessing Prayer Card, and a baby doll, explain to the children that our God is a God of Blessing! He Loves to bless what He has made, and we as His children get to do the same! You can even explain to children that words of blessing have the power to heal and protect! Then explain to the children that the baby (doll) needs love and blessing. Have them take turns coming up to the baby and encourage them to love and bless the baby. You can give each child a sentence to repeat from The Father’s Blessing, so that each child gets to bless and love the baby. Give them the opportunity to demonstrate loving the baby while they repeat the blessing.
Through this exercise the children will learn that caring for and loving others includes blessing others, and they will relate to the baby who is being cared for through blessing and nurturing. As they share their love and blessing truth with the baby, they will understand that this is how they are loved and blessed through those that take care of them and through their Father God.
The Father’s Blessing is a unique and personal prayer that speaks directly to a child’s identity as words of affirmation, value, purpose, belonging, and destiny are spoken over your little one. With a full color real-life design, this full page prayer is perfect for hanging in a nursery, as a new baby gift, for bedtime reading or anytime reading! Can be viewed on a digital device or printed on plain paper or photo paper. Laminate or frame for extra durability and style.

This morning was a mix of play and work, cloudy faces and happy faces. In the middle of folding Sunday and Monday’s laundry with the little tots I wondered, ‘what did Eve struggle with as a Mom?’ The first mom ever. No other moms before her or around her to compare herself with. No endless approaches to sort through. No moms saying you ‘should’ this or that. She was the first. Was she a crunchy perfect organic mom? Or was she okay with peanut butter and jelly sandwich days for her boys? Did she struggle to respond instead of react? Did she get tired of telling her kids for the 99th time to ‘chew with your mouth closed’? Or did she just let that one slide? Did she struggle to make the choice to stay present some days? Did she ever snap and tell Adam, ‘I need a break?’
