Ta-da!

Tonight, at dinner, Nathaniel (my eight year old) was telling us that he read the book of Ruth during his rest time today. He recounted the story for us. Then he went to the white board and drew the family tree from Rehab to Rehoboam.


He was so excited when he made the connection from Rehab to King David and his favorite Bible author, Solomon.

As a teacher and mother it is so exciting for me to see that light come on when they make a discovery for themselves, especially when it involves the word of God.  What can be more rewarding than realizing that one of our little disciples have locked away a little Bible truth that will serve them for the rest of their lives?

    Though I had to laugh when I tried to figure out who "Shampoo" was in that family tree! :)
