” I will give thanks
to the Lord
with my whole heart”
When you go in your child’s room this month say, “Good morning, [child’s name]! Who does Mommy/Daddy love? Mommy/Daddy loves you!” Tickle your child’s tummy. “I’m so thankful God gave you to me!”
God gives His People rules to follow.
As you drive, take turns with your child thanking God for things you see out of the window. You can thank God for the sun, clouds, birds, grocery store, stop sign, and everything you see, because we can thank God for everything!
Jesus teaches us how to pray.
Cuddle up with your child this month and pray, “Dear God, I have so much to be thankful for, like getting to be [child’s name]’s mom/dad. Thank You for this privilege. Please help me teach him/her to love You and be thankful. I love You, God. In Jesus’ name, amen.”

Encourage your child to look around at things in the bath area and thank God for them. For example, “Thank You, God, for water. Thank You, God, for soap. Thank You, God, for [bath toy]. Thank You, God, for Mommy/Daddy.”
God takes care of us like a shepherd takes care of his sheep.
