hidden in his heart

Dusting off my preschool teacher hat has been fun.

I've loved watching Daniel learn, solve puzzles and fine tune his motor skills.

But there is one part better than all the rest.  

The (free) online curriculum that I chose focuses around a bible verse for memorizing each week.

[I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.] Philippians 4:3
Though for D it sounds more like "I can do all the things I want to do wif Jesus Christ."
close enough ~ I'll take it!
He now knows six verses ~ and how to apply them in his everyday life.

[Thou shall not steal] Exodus 20:15
He has nailed this one ~ and its meaning.
Don't get caught with your hand in his Halloween basket!
Each week he is hiding a little more scripture in his heart.

[Let your light shine before men so they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven]  Matthew 5:16
At the dinner table when the big kids get to share highlights of their work from the week, little D is happy to share his memory verse.  Which leads to a family discussion on what they mean.  And that is helping the others to re-learn their verses as well.  It's like getting little life lessons from the Bible via their little brother.

pleased with himself after reviewing his memory verses
Yes, I'm happy that he knows his letters, numbers, shapes and colors.  But my heart rejoices in his joy over learning God's word.

Love those curiculums that have Bible memorization. That will always stay with them. The Word is alive within them. Yea!
