EXODUS 17:8-13 Aaron helps his brother, Moses,
by holding his arms up when
Moses gets tired.
SAY THIS: Who helps you do big things? God helps me do big things.
Cuddle with your child and take turns thanking God for helping you do big things today. Say, "Dear God, [child's name] and I want to thank You for helping us do big things today, like (name one thing) and (your child names one thing) and (name one thing) and (your child names one thing) . . . " Continue naming things and close by saying, "We love You, God. In Jesus' name, amen."
“We have the Lord our God to help us.”
2 Chronicles 32:8, NLT

One of the most sobering truths about parenting is that you are teaching your children something, whether you are being intentional or not. Sure, you may not teach your children everything they need to know about Calculus or Biology, but your children are learning things from you as a parent that they will carry with them for the rest of their lives.
