How many times have we been in situations where God was telling us to do something really hard and we knew we had to trust and obey him? That is what we are going to teach our preschoolers this month through the story of Abraham. We’ll tell the story of Abraham, and how he trusted God to provide for him even when God asked him to move and promised what he couldn’t believe. Just as God had a plan for Abraham, He has a plan for us, too. God loves us SO MUCH and has a plan for us. As you go through these activities with your child, make cookies using a recipe or use instructions to build a house out of blocks together. Each time, talk about how God has a big plan and each of us has a part to play that he has planned out just for us!

Since our story about Abraham is about trusting God and doing what He says, I want you to think about what you want to do when you’re all grown up like your mommy and dad- dy. I’ll write down what you say. Then, when I pray, I’ll use our list to thank God for having a plan for us and ask Him to help us trust His plan.
