5 Ways to Streamline Breakfast When Life is Stressful
School is right around the corner and you know what that means…MORNING RUSH HOUR!!! No we’re not talking about the traffic on our highways, we’re describing every weekday morning as we try to get our kids ready for school. Dragging them out of bed, the brushing of the teeth, dressing them in clothes that almost match, and the shoes…we’re lucky to even find them! Finally, we throw something, actually anything in front of our kids that they’ll eat so they have some kind of sustenance for the day. I’m tired even thinking about it…but here’s something that might help. Here’s five quick ways to make your breakfast successful! 5 Ways to Streamline Breakfast When Life is Stressful
Now with your kids...
Grab your Bible and sit down in your kid’s favorite spot in your house. Here’s your theme…Creativity is imagining what you could do because you were made in God’s image.
Read Jeremiah 10:12
Have you ever caught a lizard or firefly in a jar to observe it? Ever looked closely at a leaf or blade of grass? There’s a lot you could learn by studying that lizard or looking at the leaf under a microscope. But even a super smart entomologist (a person that studies insects) and botanists (a person that studies plants), can’t create a lizard or leaf with all that knowledge. Only God can do that. By His power He made the earth. His wisdom and understanding created all the insects and plants and everything else that fills our world.
The amount of creativity and skill it took to create the world around us is too much for us to imagine. But that same God who made it all by His power loves you. And He made you to be creative too.
Collect several leaves from outside. Grab a sheet of paper and a crayon. Lay the leaf on a flat surface and place the paper on top. Peel some of the paper off of the crayon, lay it on its side and rub it over the page to create a leaf rubbing. At the bottom of the page, write out today’s verse.

Everywhere You Look
(supporting: Genesis 2:7, 21-22)
Lord, you are great. You are really worthy of praise.
No one can completely understand how great you are.
Psalm 145:3, NIrV
There’s no limit to God’s creativity.
Creativity—Imagining what you could do because you’re made in God’s image
I can trust God no matter what.
We kick off this series in Genesis 1-2:3 as we help kids discover something about the beginning of the universe. Looking around at creation, one can’t help but notice God’s creativity. From nothing, God spoke the universe into existence. No detail left out, creation gives us the brilliant creativity of a God who is big enough to create the world and personal enough to love us no matter what.
Bottom Line: There’s no limit to God’s creativity. We pray that kids will start looking at the world more closely and notice God’s amazing creativity. From the uniqueness of animals to breathtaking landscapes throughout the word, not to mention the expansive universe filled with solar systems galore, we want kids to discover the wonder of creation and how it shows us how awesome God is.
