BIG & SMALL: A 5-WEEK SERIES FROM THE OLD TESTAMENT ABOUT JOB

Do you ever stop and think about how big God must be? God created this whole world, all of the planets, and stars in the sky . . . God is really big! Knowing God is big can make us feel small and inconsequential. But the truth is, even the small things are a big deal to God. The story of Job will help everyone realize that even though we are small, God listens to our big feelings, God sees the big picture, God cares about every small problem, and we can also be a big help in small ways.

Tip of the Month:

You are the coolest parent we know! Now, you may not feel trendy, outgoing, or young enough for kids to think you’re cool, but the good news is that every single one of those things matters much less than we tend to think. Whether or not your kids or their friends ever call you cool, you can be the greatest influence in their life!

Resources:

Ever wished your kid would just listen to you already? What about talk? Ever wished they would open up just a little bit more? We get it. So do Adele Faber & Elaine Mazlish, authors of HOW TO TALK SO KIDS WILL LISTEN AND LISTEN SO KIDS WILL TALK.
