Proverbs can move mountains! Want to make a difference? Be the difference! They always say if there is a topic you want to read about, go to the Bible. Porn? Bible. Good deeds? Bible. Heros? Bible. Murder? Bible. In this chapter, men learn how to be Godly men and Godly women. Learn how to be Confident, and teach your children confidence.
Confidence. Confidence. Confidence.
According to Websters
According to the Holy Bible
- Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through him who strengthens me.
- Hebrews 13:6 So we can confidently say, “The Lord is my helper; I will not fear; what can man do to me?”
- Hebrews 10:35-36 Therefore do not throw away your confidence, which has a great reward. For you have need of endurance, so that when you have done the will of God you may receive what is promised.
- Psalm 27:3 Though an army encamp against me, my heart shall not fear; though war arise against me, yet I will be confident.
- Matthew 6:34 Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.
Why must we be confident?
Confidence, or some people, is a learned skill… not an inherit character trait. We must be confident because everywhere we look people will be there to peer pressure us into things. We need to know right from wrong, and on topics that are clearly wrong stand faithfully in our mission to uphold the right. We must also teach our children this vital skill. They will need it today, tomorrow, in school, as a teen, and as married young adults! They will need this skill the rest of their lives.
- Hand Turkeys: What I’m Good At/Thankful Turkeys: Next month is November, what a better way to prepare than by making kid-crafted turkeys! How to posts coming soon! In the What I’m Good At Turkey, we used a toilet paper roll to be the turkey’s body and made feathers from card stock with our hands. We added feet to the bottom, and stuffed the paper roll with jiblets of paper where I wrote everything Kara told me she was good at: and that’s a lot of stuff! 🙂 With the Thankful Turkey’s, we used our feet and hands on $1 store plates to paint a plate for decoration. I then used sharpie to write on the bottom of the plate we are thankful for ______ and the person’s name we gifted the plate to 🙂
- Shape Hunt: I cut shapes of carstock and taped an M&M to each. I then taped the shape on the wall, floor, and bookshelf and asked Kara to find where they were in the house! She always felt so rewarded to find the right one. M&M’s have a way of talking to kids 😉

- Throwing Bags onto Numbers: I couldn’t find any beanbags, so instead we threw our bodies! I put 5 pillows on the floor and put a number on each pillow. Kara then jumped (or, she flew….) onto each number as I called it out. You can do more, or randomize, but she’s only recognizing numbers 1-5 so far.
- Texture Sticks: I LOVE THIS CONCEPT for my 8 month old. He is severely disabled, and we’ve now consistently got him bringing new objects to his face. For normally progressing children, it’s still great for their hands and fine motor skills to explore. I have to be super careful he doesn’t swallow anything, despite so far he doesn’t put them in his mouth, but it really opens him up to new textures, scents, and feelings. How to post coming up!
