Growing in Wisdom and Stature
My 2 year old nephew is unusually smart (unlike his Aunt Sandi) – he remembers EVERTHING you tell him (again, unlike me – I forget my own address sometimes – you think I’m kidding – I’m not). I’ve had this idea of doing a scripture picture book for him to help him fall in love with the Word of God at an early age. I wanted to put together something that could help him start working on memorizing scripture. Well, I finally got around to doing it for his birthday. He is 2 years old today. My prayer is that as he grows in wisdom and stature he will love the Word. Aidan, seek Jesus with all of your heart, soul, mind, and strength – there is nothing like Him on earth! May He be your greatest joy! I love you!
I took pictures of the pages – they didn’t turn out too well – they are lop-sided and blurry, but it will give you an idea of the book. On one side I’ve printed pages that look like they’re out of the bible and I’ve “highlighted” the verse that goes with the picture, so he can “find” the verse. On the opposite side is a painting and the focus verse for him to start learning.
For those of you parents that like this idea, you don’t have to be an artist to do something like this. You could easily get magazines and cut out pictures and make your own picture scripture book. If you’d like some more ideas on pictures and verses let me know, because I have a ton of them (if enough of you respond I’ll post them on the blog). I just bought a scrap book and pasted the pictures and printed out verses in the book. You can get as elaborate or as simple as you’d like. It would be a fun project for older kids too!
