BULLYING AND THE REMEDY

The effects of bullying are often self-hatred, depression. The surprising way she won…

Taylor Perkins

By Taylor Perkins

It lingers, the hateful, mocking laughter. The images of angry glares and sneers. That cold feeling in your bones letting you know just how isolated, scared, and lost you’ve become. Or maybe it’s the self-inflicted and all-too-visible scars decorating your body that make it impossible for you to feel anything but broken.   READ MORE!

The Fruit of the Spirit!
A Printable Booklet 

A Season of Change

It is the time of year that most homeschoolers start back to school. Fall is just around the corner and arrives on September 22, 2014. Maybe you are happy about your “school” starting back or maybe you are sad to say goodbye to summer. Fall is a season of change and a time to get reorganized and prepared for the season ahead. It is very important to prepare your mind and heart for the challenges that the new school year might have for you. Try to remember the “Fruits of the Spirit” when preparing your heart and mind for the school year ahead.

Daniel 2:21 New International Version (NIV)

He changes times and seasons; he deposes kings and raises up others. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning.
“Back to School” For Homeschoolers is of course a little different than heading back to a classroom. The great thing about being a homeschooler is that you are always learning about God’s wonderful world regardless of the season. But many homeschoolers do take a little break in the summer and fall is the beginning of their new school year.

Let’s Get Back To Basics!

“Run The Race”

1 Corinthians 9:24 New International Version (NIV)

The Need for Self-Discipline
24 Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize.

God's Promises

THIS FREE DEVOTION IS AVAILABLE AT OUR TEACHERS PAY TEACHERS STORE.

This ”Back to School / Homeschool” devotion is FREE – All we ask is that you take the time to RATE the product and write a quick review.

We pray that as you and your child study this devotion on the promises of God that you will be blessed. God’s promises are for all of us and they are forever! God never changes!

Promises of God

Back to School / Homeschool

Fall officially begins on September 22, 2014 but most of us begin our homeschooling year before this date. 

After a long summer, it is exciting to start a new school year! There is so much to learn about God’s great big world and the race to your new year has begun!

We learn in the verse above that “all the runners run” but only ONE will win the prize. We are told to run to WIN the prize.

This verse is teaching us about discipline. The definition of discipline is: strict training that corrects or strengthens mental ability or moral character.

In order to win the prize, we must be disciplined. In our schoolwork, it is important to set goals and then to be disciplined each day as we do our work.

Have A Plan!

Being organized will help you stay disciplined. It’s a great idea to design a daily schedule and always start your day with prayer. As you go through your day, it is so much fun to check off each task as you complete them.

Have goals – what do you want to learn? What is Mom or Dad trying to teach you? Make it a goal to try your very best when Mom or Dad teach you or assign you a task.

It is not easy to stay on task and staying disciplined – that is why there is only ONE winner :-)

Another reason it is important to try our best is because God has called us to a high standard and we bring GLORY to God when we do our best work!

Memory Verses

1 Corinthians 9:24 New International Version (NIV)

The Need for Self-Discipline
24 Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Philippians 3:13-14 New International Version (NIV)

13 Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.

Try to commit these verses to your memory. Whenever you are having a hard day or a difficult time focusing, remember these verses. God wants you to be the BEST YOU that YOU can be. God wants you to always give your best effort and this will bring GLORY to Him.

We serve a wonderful God and He has made us many promises in His word. 

What is the best promise in the Bible? The best promise started in the Old Testament when God promised to send a saviour. God fulfilled this promise in the New Testament when God sent His ONLY son to save the world.

John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

 

God's Promises

So, what have we learned? We know that in this race, ALL win run but only ONE will win the prize. We have discovered that it takes discipline to WIN the race. We also learned that it isn’t easy to stay disciplined and that we need God’s help and we need a PLAN!

We have learned that we should begin each day with prayer and that we should memorize verses that help us in our daily race.

We learned that we GLORIFY God when we try our best :-)

We know that God has promised us many things in the Bible. We know that we need to read the Bible and memorize these promises and hide them in our hearts. We know that God loves us very much and that He will never leave us or forsake us. We know that God will save us if we believe in Jesus and accept His gift on the cross for our sins. 

When we pray, we need to BELIEVE that God will answer our prayer. We do not need to worry. Continue to pray and continue to believe and know in your heart that God loves you and will ALWAYS do what is best for you.

AMEN!

The Greatest Gift – Jesus is the Reason

Jesus is the Reason

THE GREATEST GIFT – JESUS IS THE REASON

The Greatest Gift – Jesus is the Reason for the Season

Celebrate this Christmas season by keeping your child’s focus on the true meaning of Christmas!

The Greatest Gift is a unit study based on the true meaning of Christmas.

Your child will be led by our good friend, Rudie. Together, they will travel back over 2000 years ago to discover the true reason of the season of Christmas.

The unit progresses from your child’s first meeting with Rudie to the completion of the adventure.

Along the journey, your child will learn many interesting things related to this special event in history.

Rudie will introduce your child to:

• Isaiah – the prophet of God who told about future events. He predicted the birth of baby Jesus.
• Many Bible verses which show how the birth of Jesus fulfilled numerous prophecies from the Old Testament.
• The meaning of many new vocabulary words.
• The location of Bethlehem on a map.
• Mary & Joseph
• Baby Jesus

Your child’s adventure with Rudie is progressive and your child will keep track of his progress with a special notebook, made with a printable cover and manila folder. Rudie is a truth seeker, and this little reindeer will not rest until he knows the true meaning of Christmas.

Along the way, Rudie will sometimes find it helpful to use Bible memory verses as well as vocabulary flash cards. These tools will be helpful on their adventure.

Sometimes Rudie and your child will want to relax and they may play a game, wordsearch, puzzle or other activity.

When they get hungry, there will be a special snack recipe that reindeer really love and Rudie believes your child will love also!

Once Rudie and your child complete the quest and they know the true meaning of Christmas, Rudie will present your child with a special certificate.

Of course, the journey doesn’t stop there!

Now that your child and Rudie know about Jesus, they begin a new mission – a mission of sharing the good news of Jesus! Rudie will help your child discover the meaning of charity and love as together they share the good news of Jesus with others through little candy canes with a printable tag.

For the grand finale, Rudie will help your child create a very special birthday cake for Jesus!

Before, the journey begins, it’s important to explain to your child about this special adventure. Rudie will ask your child to sign a pledge promising that he will be a truth seeker and that when they discover the true meaning, they will share it with everyone!

Promises of God

Happy Birthday Jesus!

Isaiah 9:6-7

6 For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given,
and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
7 Of the greatness of his government and peace
there will be no end.
He will reign on David’s throne
and over his kingdom,
establishing and upholding it
with justice and righteousness
from that time on and forever.
The zeal of the Lord Almighty
will accomplish this.

Did you know that on December 25th, we will celebrate the birthday of the Savior of the world? In the verse above, we learn many things about this special birthday that we will celebrate. In verse 6, we are told:

6 For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given,
and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

We learn from Isaiah, the prophet, that a baby will be born. Notice that Isaiah says that “to us” a child is born and “to us” a son is given.

Isaiah is telling us that God sent His son to US as a gift. God loved us so much that He gave us His only Son as a gift!

We also learn from Isaiah that “the government will be on his shoulders.” Jesus came to earth as a tiny little helpless baby in a manger. Jesus died on the cross for our sins and suffered for us so that we can one day live in Heaven with Him forever! One day, Jesus will come AGAIN to earth. When Jesus returns to earth, He will not be a tiny little helpless baby, but He will be a King. Jesus will be the King of the world and every knee will bow to Him and call Him Lord.

In verse 6, we also learn a few of the names that Jesus will be called:

And he will be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

What does “Wonderful Counselor” mean to you and me? The dictionary defines counselor in the following way:  a person who gives advice. We all know what wonderful means but the dictionary says that wonderful means marvelous and admirable. When Jesus came the first time, He gave wonderful advice and he performed marvelous miracles during His lifetime.

Jesus has not changed. Jesus is still a wonderful counselor to you and me. We can talk to Him anytime! If you need help or advice, call out in prayer to the “Wonderful Counselor” and He will answer you.

Another name given to Jesus is “Mighty God.” The dictionary tell us that mighty means powerful and strong. We know that God is the creator of the entire universe and everything the universe contains. “Mighty God” means that we have a POWERFUL and STRONG God. What God is also telling us is that Jesus IS God inside a human’s body. This is a powerful verse! Jesus came to earth as a “Wonderful Counselor” and He was and IS “Mighty God.” Isn’t it comforting to know that OUR GOD is always there to give us advice and that He is STRONG and POWERFUL! Nothing is impossible for OUR GOD!

Another beautiful name of Jesus is “Everlasting Father.” The dictionary tells us that everlasting means to last forever. Jesus is the “Father of Forever.” By being our Father forever, we know He will always be there. Jesus will never leave us or forget about us. Jesus loves us with a perfect love – even more than our earthly fathers. Jesus has an unconditional love. Unconditional means that Jesus loves us NO MATTER what we do. There is no sin that God won’t forgive! There isn’t anything that we can do to make Jesus love us more…..or less. God’s love is unconditional. God loves because God’s love is perfect.

The last name we learn about in verse 6 is “The Prince of Peace.” What is a prince? A prince is a son of a king. Jesus is THE SON of GOD! Our Prince is THE greatest Prince! Jesus is the “Prince of Peace.” The word peace means no war, harmony, and freedom from unhappy thoughts or feelings. Jesus came to earth to bring us peace and JOY. Jesus stays the same and He still wants you to feel a sense of peace. If you are sad or scared, you can talk to God and ask that the Prince of Peace fill you peace and happiness.

God's Promises

7 Of the greatness of his government and peace
there will be no end.
He will reign on David’s throne
and over his kingdom,
establishing and upholding it
with justice and righteousness
from that time on and forever.
The zeal of the Lord Almighty
will accomplish this.

In verse 7 from the above passage, we learn more about this little baby that is to be born in a manger. Isaiah tells us “Of the greatness of his government and peace there will be no end.” We learn that the kingdom of Jesus will be GREAT and PEACEFUL! The best news is that the Kingdom of Jesus will NEVER end. When Jesus returns to earth, His Kingdom will last forever.

Isaiah also tells us “He will reign on David’s throne and over his kingdom, establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness from that time on and forever.” Jesus will rule on King David’s throne and over his kingdom. We learn that Jesus will rule with justice and righteousness forever. Justice means “fair” and righteousness means to act in a good and proper way. When Jesus is King, He will be fair and He will act in a righteous way.

The last part of the verse above says “The zeal of the Lord Almighty
will accomplish this.” The word zeal means “eager desire in going for a goal.” The Lord is eager to make sure that the words above happen just as they are written.

These two verses which predict the birth of Jesus give us so much hope as Christians. We learn that God loves us. God loves us so much He gave us the GREATEST Christmas gift we will ever receive. God sent us His SON so that we could be forgiven. We also learn that Jesus IS God in human form.

We learn a few of the names of Jesus:

Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace

Jesus is always there to give us advice and guide us in life. Jesus IS God and He is powerful. Nothing is impossible for OUR GOD! Call out to Him when you need help and He will answer you. We know that Jesus is the “Father of Forever” and that He will never leave us. The last name Isaiah gives us in verse 6 tells us that Jesus came to give us peace.

The Kingdom of Jesus will be one of fairness and goodness. The Kingdom of Jesus will last forever!

God, The Father, is EAGER to make this promise come true. We can always believe the promises of God because they ALWAYS come true.

One day, Jesus will return as a great and powerful King.

This Christmas, keep your eyes on Jesus, the baby who was born in a manger, and the Coming King!

Christmas is so much more than presents! Christmas is a birthday celebration and Jesus deserves to be invited to His own party. Each day of Advent, the days leading up to Christmas, focus on the real meaning of Christmas and God will bless you and you will have the GREATEST Christmas you have ever known.
