Did you get any new tools for Christmas this year? Even the most mundane work is more fun when you have a new tool!
One of my Christmas gifts this year was a coffee mug (an excellent tool for drinking coffee) with a beautiful quote: "Children are not a distraction from more important work. They are the most important work." In the day in, day out, familiarity of family life, it's easy to forget that. As parents, our most important work is raising our kids. Specifically raising them up to follow Jesus.
This work of discipling our kids can feel daunting. That's why I want to remind you about a great tool you can use that can help make the most important work more manageable, accessible and downright fun.
Did you know that New Covenant Bible Church has made all the content of Right Now Media available to you for free?
They have more than 140 different Bible-based kids' shows for ages 0-11+ including:
- Veggie Tales
- 3-2-1- Penguins
- Adventures in Odyssey
- Friends & Heroes
- Animated Stories of the Bible
- Drive Through History
- Patterns of Evidence: Young Explorers
These are shows that teach you and your kids important lessons about God, character, friendship, and the Bible. Shows that support and align with your beliefs. Shows that could turn your living room into a discipleship classroom.
I want to highlight my personal favorite, "What's In the Bible?" In these 26 episodes, Phil Vischer, the creator of Veggie Tales, walks your family through the entire Bible from Genesis to Revelation and answers such burning questions as, "What is the Bible?" "Who wrote the Bible?" and "What is a Pentateuch?"
The cast of characters is hilarious and the songs are too. You will laugh and you will learn and your kids will understand they are a part of God's Big Story that He has been telling since the beginning of time.
Sign up for free to access this amazing tool to help equip you in life's most important work.
"Lord, you are great. You are really worthy of praise. No one can completely understand how great you are. Parents praise your works to their children. They tell about your mighty acts. They speak about your glorious majesty. I will spend time thinking about your wonderful deeds." (Psalm 145: 3-5, NIRV).
I'm cheering you on as you do life's most important work!
