12:31-42 Moses' mom hides him in the reeds along a river bank in order to protect him from Pharoah.
SAY THIS: Who's got it? God's got it.
Cuddle up wth your child this month and pray, "Dear God, You are so powerful! You know everything and can do anything. Please help [child's name] and me to trust that no matter what happens, You've got it and You can take care of us. You are the best, God, and we love You very much. In Jesus' name, amen."
"God is with you wherever you go." Joshua 1:9, NLT
BASIC TRUTH: God loves me.

THE CURE FOR THE COMMON COMPLAINT By Jenna Scott
No one wants to raise a bratty, malcontent monster who stomps her foot and shouts “I want a pony,” and “Daddy, give me more” like Veruca Salt in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. It is so ugly, especially in children
