6 Ideas for Summer Fun with Scripture!

I thought I’d touch on some oldies, but goodies today and also let you know what to look forward to!

Happy Memorial Day!  For those with older children/teens, you might find it interesting to read and discuss the poignant true story I mentioned in this Memorial Day blog from last year.

If you have plans to go on vacation or have a staycation, don’t forget about Vacationing with Scripture and that the memories and teachable moments it creates are more valuable than any souvenir you could bring home!

Many of you are newer subscribers and didn’t see my Summer Fun Series from 2012.
Scroll through to see ideas for:
*Media with Scripture
*Good Deeds Day
*Playing with Scripture
*Praying with Scripture

*Cooking & Snacking with Scripture
*Singing with Scripture

Stay tuned!  This Texas born and bred blogger can’t go any longer without sharing some thoughts and ideas through my upcoming Southern Hospitality Series.  I’ll try to stay off my high horse!  🙂


And, don’t forget to keep an eye out for those teachable moments that pop up!
Keep your copy of Parenting with Scripture: A Topical Guide for Teachable Moments handy.

Memorial Day- Powerful Story to Create a Teachable Moment

The meaning behind Memorial Day can often get overlooked in the midst of enjoying a day off, BBQing, swimming, etc.

My father-in-law sent this story to me recently and it generated wonderful conversation with my children. 

This would be a wonderful way to spend a moment thanking God for those who have proudly served our country…and “Our Father!”

**Please be aware that it is intense and, depending on the child, most appropriate for upper elementary, middle schoolers, and teens.** –
