  1. Hello Kristin!

    The Beatitudes lessons are on the 4th week of THE CHALLENGE (days 16 to 20). My funny drawings are so childish, I’m sure that anyone could draw them. But if you would like, I could take a photo of our Beatitudes Bible-verse chart and make a PDF page you could simply print out. Would that be helpful to you, or were you just making a fun comment?

    I’m glad your family is participating in the challenge. Feel free to continue to make comments as you continue.

    Blessings to you this Christmas season!

    Sooo, it’s been quite some time since these Beatitudes conversations. How can those of us in lands far away (like Colorado 🙂 learn your Beatitudes teaching illustrations!?!

    My children are a great example to me. I know it should be the other way around.

    Another email comment, referring to next week’s focus on the BEATITUDES:

    That is so exciting! Don’t you just love it when God does a “goose-bump” moment! I am sooooo looking forward to seeing how you “do” the Beatitudes. Our church started on them last Wednesday. I get to share your Hand Commands this coming Wed. God takes my breath away with His perfect timing and wondrous love! Thank you again for sharing your wonderful ideas!!! Marsha

    Life’s short. Live it deliberately.

    ahhhh . . . Nicole, YOU are such a tremendous blessing to ME (!!!!).

    Jon & I both thank you for your personal encouragement and friendship (you know, “mission-minded” ministry comes in all sorts of packages, and yours to me is SO uniquely appreciated). You and Adrian are a POWER-house newlywed team for GOD, and Jon and I are so proud of you both. I’ve told Mark & Daniel to look forward to some awesome preaching during tonight’s youth service – and I trust that Adrian will be anointed as he ministers.

    Blessings to you both!

    Ann-You are sooooooo awesome!!! Thanks for being such a wonderful example of a Mom to me, I love you so much! I’m so thankful to be a part of your life. You’re a blessing.

    Marsha, what an awesome thought.

    I ABSOLUTELY have something in particular that our family has developed for teaching the Beatitudes, which our family (and various kid’s churches I’ve been a part of) have utilized for many years. As my husband and I have raised (and are raising) our kids, we actually spend about one year of their Bible-study time (which for us is during our homeschooling morning activities) specifically on memorizing and studying the entire Sermon on the Mount (and we’re talking about memorizing three entire chapters of the Bible – even with little kids).

    We use simple pictures which we draw on a giant notebook, and they’ve worked very well. We tackle a few verses a day, and by the end of the school year, they can all quote the entire section (Matthew 5-7). The powerful foundation for life – and God’s standards for righteousness and loving others – in this section of the Bible is outstanding!!!

    You’ve definitely got me thinking . . . hmmmm . . . I’ll pray about if I should add the intro to this to our 40-Day Challenge.

    Wow! I love the Hand Commands! They will be sooooo helpful in teaching our children and our church family, as well as a great evangelism tool. Thank you so much for making them available! Your videos are so inspiring and challenging. Now, what do you have to help learn the Beatitudes? Hee Hee
