I Am Thankful ABCs

I created these Thanksgiving activity pages for my Bible classes that I teach on Wednesday nights. They are divided up into preschool, K-2nd, and 3rd-5th, so I made three different levels.

I read these verses (around the edges of the page) with the two older classes and we discussed why thankfulness is so important in our Christian walk. The upper elementary kids came up with something to be thankful for using letters of the alphabet. The lower elementary kids drew or wrote theirs in the blank squares below the pics. I simply talked about the pictures with the preschoolers.

  • Psalm 105:1  Expressing gratitude brings glory to God
  • Philippians 4:6 – Do not worry. Instead, thankfully bring your needs before God.
  • Colossians 1:3 Thank God for the people in your life.
  • Colossians 3:17 – Do everything in the name of Jesus, giving thanks to God.

I challenged the kids to offer up a prayer of Thankgiving each day until Thanksgiving using their chart. Feel free to download yours below. For best result, choose the Fit to Page setting on your printer.

Monthly Encouragement for REAL Moms

This time of year is always so busy for our family. School is in full swing along with all of the activities that brings, we have several birthdays and our anniversary, then comes Halloween and Thanksgiving and Christmas. I finally have time to collapse once January rolls around again. 

I get so frustrated with myself when things get crazy because I end up racing through the days from one “Have to” to the next, when I KNOW there is a better way.  Last night I decided to take some time to search for some ways to slow down and be intentional about savoring this life that God has given me. I miss so much of the beauty when I am only focused on my To Do list. I’m guessing that I am not the only one who feels this way, so I am sharing my finds with you. <3

John 10

An abundant life. That is the gift we’ve been given through Christ. I titled this post Encouragement for REAL moms because that’s what we all are. Perfect might work on Pinterest, but not in everyday life. REAL also stands for Refreshing Encouragement for an Abundant Life. I hope these sites encourage you as much as they have me! 

His Mercy is New is sharing 31 Days of Praying the Scriptures for Your Family. There is an October prayer calendar to print, and also some prayer bookmarks. I am excited about her new Advent Prayer Journal for Moms that just came out.
