This Week in First Look - June Week 2

Who gives you the power to do everything? Jesus gives you the power to do everything!


BASIC TRUTH:

Jesus wants to be my friend forever!


WEEK 2 STORY:

ACTS 16:16-34 Paul and Silas pray and sing to the Lord while in prison.

This month, We are talking all about the Fruits of the Spirit! Our goal is to let toddlers and preschoolers know that God gives them the power to do everything. We will share bible stories, play worship videos, and engage your preschooler in hands-on activities that remind them of this basic truth!


DRIVE TIME - DO THIS!


As you drive, take turns saying, "Jesus gives me the power to[action word]." When you get where you're going, say together, "Jesus gives me the power to do everything!" Example action words: love, help, run, smile, hug, clean my room, forgive, wash dishes, walk my dog, etc.


REMEMBER THIS:

"I can do everything by the power of Christ." Philippians 4:13, NIrV

WE'RE ALL A WORK IN PROGRESS

By Mike Tiemamnn


As our kids grow from toddlers to kindergarteners to preteens, a funny thing happens. Our focus shifts. We no longer worry so much about just keeping them alive. Instead, as they slowly but surely become more independent, we think about what kind of people they’ll become.


Our hope is that our kids will learn to live out good qualities like honesty, trust, courage, patience, and forgiveness. 


But what’s our role in helping our kid develop these traits? Are they already hardwired?

Here’s something important to remember as you consider: God has made each one of us in His image, with the ability to live with integrity and demonstrate His character to others . . .

QUANTITY OF QUALITY TIME

By Stephen Jones


Now, we all know that quantity time, the amount of time you spend together, is important. I love when my daughter is reading, and she asks me to sit on the couch next to her. Even though we aren't interacting, it means something to her. The quantity of time we spend with our children provides comfort and communicates importance. 


But we often rely on quantity time as a substitute for quality time. It's not quite the same, though. Sitting in the same room with my kids while we are each on our electronic devices may mean we are spending time together, but it's not intentional, undistracted time. And it won’t build memories in the same way . . .

6 WAYS NEW DADS CAN BOND WITH THEIR NEWBORNS

By Robert Carnes


When we announced my wife was pregnant, people told me how much I would love my daughter, and the love I would experience when I held her for the first time. Then, the big day came and my little girl was born. I was certainly filled with wonder and amazement at the miracle of life, but I didn’t feel an instant connection with her. I wasn’t overcome with emotion or a sudden infusion of paternal instincts. I didn’t really feel like a dad just yet. This was a struggle that I didn’t expect. But I know I'm not alone. Maybe you feel the same way.


I wasn’t sure how I was supposed to bond with my baby girl—in fact, I’m still not sure; I’m still learning. But I wanted to share what I’d discovered so far when it comes to bonding with your child as a new dad . . .
