A Great Idea (And A Question).

First, the Great Idea.

It's totally not mine. It's a brilliant idea that I found via Pinterest (all of my great ideas are completely unoriginal and come straight from Pinterest). The clever lady behind it is Carissa, from lowercase letters. She came up with the idea to use a SMASH book as a scripture scrapbook to help the littles memorize scripture (and I just happened to have an extra SMASH laying around). My 6 year old is taking to it like crazy. I involved the kids (as much as I could) in the process of creating it, and it's not at all done yet. We're doing one page every day or two. Here are a few we've done so far.





Little Mister is absolutely loving making these. In fact, he has taken to scouring the Bible to find verses he likes. He's six, so this is a little different, but we're going with it. I love that he considers 'pools' and 'cats' to be a good and perfect gift. This is a fun age. Now here's where I totally deviate from the normal Give1 post, so I'm trying to tie it together, see...

I promised said Little Mister that he could make a cameo on Give1 Save1 instead of our regular family blog. He actually knows that this one gets more traffic and he wants a bunch of comments. In fact, he'll be checking this post obsessively to see if there are any responses, so I beg you, help a mom out! For a project he needs to graph these results. Here we go...


I mustache you a question... What is your favorite color? Red, blue, green, yellow, or orange?

  17. It is difficult to choose just one color, but since I can only pick one, I would have to say GREEN!

    Keep hiding God's Word in your heart, Will!!! (Psalm 119:11)

  20. Will,

    You look fanTACHEtic!

    My favorite color is green!

    I love John 17:17 where Jesus is praying and He says, "Sanctify them by the truth; Your word is truth." Isn't that a good one?! I'm so glad that I can count on God to tell the truth!
