During a recent snow day, my son forced my wife into being the videographer for her multi-scene story of Jesus which he told with Lego Jesus, Jenga blocks, Disney princesses as the women at the tomb, and Lego Mixels as the Pharisees. We still need to work on a bit of clarity in some of his stories, but he has the basics.
I was really excited about the video not only because of his creativity, but because it confirmed that the things that we are teaching are actually finding a home in his brain and heart.
Parents, I know that sometimes it can get discouraging – wondering if your kids will grasp and embrace the truths that we try to teach them. Do not lose heart – they are picking up more than you might think.
