Raising Rock Stars

Raising Rock Stars

We're jumping on board the Rock Star train over at 1+1+1=1. Recently Carisa posted about an idea she had about being intentional about laying a solid Biblical foundation in the lives of her children so that they can " Shine like stars". So each week people will share what they have been doing at home to lay a biblical foundation in the lives of their children. I"m looking forward to gleaning ideas!

Each day we read our Bibles together. We read the passage we are working on memorizing (John 15:1-12) and then a couple key verses. This week we talked about pruning and how the Lord disciplines those he loves. That led into a great conversation on how it can be loving for a parent to discipline a child.

John 15:1

I am the vine

The older kids once again illustrated a couple of the verses. The two-year old glued leaves onto a vine picture.

My pre-teen had to decorate a t-shirt that glows in the dark for an upcoming youth event under blacklights. I figured this would be a fun activity for all the kids to do. We decided to decorate "Rock Star" t-shirts.

And they really glow in the dark! (Please excuse the blurry picture---I didn't have a tripod handy and there is no way any of my kids sit that still for what the shutter needed)

They also wrote in their Faith Journals (here's an elementary version I made for our co-op: Faith Journal)
