Go the Distance
Resilience is a response to the character of God.
This Month’s Memory Verse:
“But those who trust in the LORD will receive new strength. They will fly as high as eagles. They will run and not get tired. They will walk and not grow weak.” Isaiah 40:31, NIrV

Resilience—Getting back up when something gets you down
Heroes of the Faith | Hebrews 11
For week four, we spend time in Hebrews 11. The author of Hebrews reminds us that when life gets hard, we can look to the heroes of the faith and see how they trusted God through some tough circumstances. We use Abraham, Joseph, and Moses to help kids understand how to show resilience through difficult circumstances.
I can trust God no matter what.
Trusting God can help you get back up.
It’s comforting to know that others have made it through to the other side of difficult times. When we see how God helped them, it helps us trust God more with our circumstances.
Message to Parents
Hebrews 11 has been called the Faith Chapter. It lists many of the biblical heroes of faith, and it shows what living faith looks like and what it will produce. One of the most famous chapters in the Bible gives memorable summaries of Old Testament heroes of faith and shows what these men and women did that so pleased God. These brief vignettes of faithful and faith-filled people of God demonstrate the power of trust in God and how to grow in it. Below is a Hebrews 11 Bible study will explore the chapter to find what God wants us to learn about faith.
Now for your Kids...
Ask your kiddos, “Who do you most look up to?” and “Who would you most want to be like?” Don’t feel upset if this answer isn’t you. Often, it might not be, and maybe that’s a good thing. We as parents and guardians over our children have such a huge influence and can support who we bring or allow in their small circle. Whoever your child(ren) chooses as their hero, it might just mean that you have been encouraging some pretty amazing people to direct them in the way of life; hopefully toward Jesus. As you talk about this person/hero with your child, make some fun Hero masks. Maybe they can write a letter to the person they most look up to. Have fun getting to know your children this way.
