Raising Rock Stars: God Gave Us You

This week we read an adorable book, 'God Gave Us You,' by Lisa Tawn Bergren. I found it at the church bookstore and about cried reading it. It's a simple story of a momma polar bear telling her cub that she was a gift from God. Mustang liked the story and Charger liked the pictures.

Then we read Hannah's story from our Beginner's Bible. I thought they went well together since it is also about a baby, Samuel, who is a gift from God.

For our craft, Mustang drew a picture of a family and Charger colored a picture of a baby.

Our verse was "Trust in the Lord" Proverbs 3:5

No pictures this week, the baby was fussy and I couldnt hold her, the book and the camera at the same time.
