I’ve started reading Little House in the Big Woodsto the children. This is a great book that can also be a great unit study. I love reading books that are so rich in real life skills. Although most of us don’t churn our own butter or hunt down our own meat, books like this one can expose our children to so much good stuff!
Last week we read where Ma would make pancakes in the shape of men on Christmas morning.
So for our afternoon snack I ground up some wheat and made the kids some special pancakes.
Titus 2:3 says that we are to be
"...teachers of good things...".
We believe that part of these good things are practical skills that we all need in every day life to care for our family and neighbors.
One of our primary responsibilities as parents is equip our children with the skills and tools to one day be productive, well rounded adults. Children need to be exposed to many different areas of work. Not only should they know how to work, but they should want to work.
May the favor of the Lord our God rest upon us;
establish the work of our hands for us-
yes, establish the work of our hands.
