TRUSTING GOD'S WAYS
Using the Trust Flash Cards, explain to the children that we must trust God and His ways, and we must also be trustworthy as we follow Him! Having the children take turns being the leader, line all of the children up behind the designated leader. Then tell the children that they have to do whatever the leader does as they follow behind the leader along the way around the classroom. You can even play music the children will enjoy as they go, such as the “Identity Statements with Background Music.”
To start, first read one of the statements from the Trust Flash Cards, have the children repeat after you, and then have the leader begin to lead the children around the room using fun and creative actions. The other children must not only follow the path of the leader around the room, but they must also do as the leader does. An example might be hopping on one foot as they go, twirling around the room, making a path under a table, etc.
Encourage the children to follow the leader and to do as they do. Then after a time, give another child the opportunity to be the leader, again reading a statement from the flash card, having the children repeat it, and then beginning their journey again around the room.
Through this exercise the children will learn the truth about trusting their God, as well as being trustworthy to follow His ways, as they go on their journey.
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.

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?’
