From A to Z: Letter C


This month, my oldest is taking swimming lessons for the first time. And he's already told me he's not going to go. And along with that declaration comes a jutted out chin and very dramatic arm-crossing. 

As a parent, I assure him that I'll be there and that it's okay to be nervous. I know that it's not so much that he doesn't want to go, it's that he's afraid of something new. 


So, I think the letter C is coming at a good time. Because the letter C's big idea is Be Courageous because God is with You. This lesson's verse is Joshua 1:9 (one you've probably heard before...)

This is my command—be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.
— Joshua 1:9 (NLT)

But I think we can easily miss the part about why we can be brave, strong, and courageous. It's not because we just muster up our own strength; it's because God is with us wherever we go. As a momma, this is something I can talk a lot about with my kids as we walk through changes, tough moments, and times when they feel afraid or unsure.


This lesson includes making a paper armor, marching around "Jericho", and reading about Joshua. So, bring out the tin foil!
