Prayer for Children

I would like to shout out IMOM for the 10 prayer topics we should pray over our children. I believe that prayer has power, and it is our responsibility to cover our homes and our children with the word of God. Join me every week as we share a powerful prayer topic for your little genius!

1. Pray for faith.

We do what we can to give our children a steady diet of the truth, but at some point they must embrace a relationship with God on their own. (Luke 2:52 “Jesus grew in wisdom and stature and in favor with God and all the people.”  John 10:27 “My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.”)

Wisdom Wednesday

A little wisdom goes a long way. I have made it a habit to have a healthy mind, body, and spirit, so every Wednesday I would like to share with you some wisdom that has helped me. Enjoy

Todays Quote is by Jim Rohn:

“A good objective of leadership is to help those who are doing poorly to do well and to help those who are doing well to do even better. “

This is the season of giving, helping someone else will bring joy into your home and your spirit! While you are thinking of someone to help, don’t forget about people who seem to have it all. This has been a tough year for us all and no one is exempt from trials and tribulation. Extend a hand and show some love to people around you this season.

Everyone needs community :-)

Moms and dads out there I know that you will understand this one! Everyone, no matter how long you have been parenting needs assistance or help of some kind. As a parent I do believe that God gives you the skill and ability to love, care and look after your little genius; but there comes a time where a helping hand can bring peace and comfort into your home.

Receiving help as a parent means being transparent. I would like to encourage you today to be strengthened by the honest notion that even amazing parents grow stronger with the right community.

Raising Little Geniuses is a community where we encourage, pray, and tap into the latest and greatest tools for you and your child. Let’s face it, parenting is hard… why do it alone. Join our community and tune in every week to receive the support you need to be the best parent you can be.

Something to make you smile:

Here is a quote to motivate and bring a smile to your face. Parenting can be hard, tune into this blog and find out possitive ways to keep life interesting and calm!

It’s not only children who grow. Parents do, too. As much as we watch to see what our children do with their lives, they are watching us to see what we do with ours. I can’t tell my children to reach for the sun. All I can do is reach for it myself

-Joyce Maynard

Its Craft Time: Paper Plate Bee

Crafts are a fun way to get personal with your little one. It is an intentional time to be silly, messy, and creative!

As parents we are always directing and instructing. It is good to show your little genius that you too can follow directions and have fun. During craft time, let your little one lead the way. When you take time to do fun things with your little genius, you are teaching them that life is fun!

Below I have posted a craft for you and your little genius. If you do the craft be sure to comment and post a picture!

HOW TO MAKE A PAPER PLATE BEE CRAFT

Supplies:

Step 1: Paint the paper plate yellow and let it dry. We used small paper plates but any size plate will work just fine.

Step 2: Use a pom pom with a clothespin as handle to paint black stripes on the paper plate. Start at the bottom and go about halfway up. Leave the paper plate yellow at the top as this is where we’ll glue the googly eyes.

Step 3: Paint two wooden clothespins black and after they dried up, glue two black pom poms at the top. One pom pom for each clothespin. These will be the bee’s antennae.

And you’re done!!
