Heaven breaks through (day 38)

Page 200 is where Sally Lloyd-Jones begins the story of John the baptist, and Jesus being baptized. We attempted to make a dove painting, while talking about the dove and God's voice accompanying it. For the dove we folded a piece of paper in half and painted one of Von and one of Alyse's hands. They then put their hand print along the middle fold line, and closed the paper so the paint was transferred to the other side in a mirror image. However, it turned out more like a butterfly than a dove. Perhaps we should have printed the hand lining up the pinky side of the hand on the fold, instead of the thumb side??? You can probably do better- but the kids still liked it and we still got to talk about the story.

the point? "The Great Rescue had begun..." (page 206)

found this blog from your FB post on the Storybook Bible page - what a great resource!!! Thank you so much for sharing. I'm part of a new church plant in the city, and since at this point, our group of kids is pretty small, so many of your activities that use at home will be easy to replicate. Thanks, again, for sharing such wonderful ideas...

I am so glad you can use it to teach kiddos about Jesus. Thanks for your work.
