This month, our preschoolers are learning to be thankful for people who help them. They are learning that family, friends, and neighbors all help them. And, they’re learning to say thank you for that help. Watch this video and then take a look below at each week and the specific story your child will hear. As you scroll, you'll also see a few downloadable resources that you can use to help continue the conversation at home with your kids.
Here’s a question. Who helps you? Or maybe the question is whom do you let help you? The Bible gives us multiple stories of people helping others, so obviously we are supposed to help those in need. But, we are also supposed to let others help us. That friend who has offered to watch your child while you do your grocery shopping. It’s okay to let her help. Your sibling who offered to buy you that new book you really want but can’t afford. It’s okay to let them help. Let those around you who love you help you. And then, say thank you.
We want to offer you ways to help your children remember this wonderful truth. Here's what we'll be talking about each week:
- November 6 - Aaron helped his brother Moses by holding up one of his tired arms while Hur held up the other. Exodus 17:8-13
- November 13 - God's people came together to help Nehemiah repair the wall around their city. Nehemiah 1-6
- November 20 - A woman helped Elisha by making a room for him to stay in when he visited. 2 Kings 4:8-17
- November 27 - Elijah and his friend, the widow, helped each other have food to eat. 1 Kings 17:7-16
