Get Real: Parenting Millennials Requires Authenticity and Vulnerability

Parenting Millennials

A godly woman once shared, “Laura, you will always love your children more than your parents.” I was startled and a bit horrified by that statement back then but have come to understand it as I’ve grown older.

Missionary Spotlight Update: Nate and Aimee Friedrichsen

One of Nate and Aimee Friedrichsen’s prayer requests was “for people in Ohio City who have no Christian friends to have believing friends because our church made intentional connections.

Counting in Japanese

Counting

Ichi, ni, san, shi, go.” You might hear us counting in Japanese if you come by my Mission Friends class. Sometimes in our sessions, you will hear preschoolers carrying on a conversation in Japanese.

Families on Mission

Give flowers

Sharing God's love together is sure to ignite a lifelong passion for missions in your family! Use these resources at home to reinforce what preschoolers are learning at church. Talking about and praying for missionaries will spark creative ideas for helping others in your own community.  

WMU has developed resources that can help your family reach out to others.

Deep and Wide

As a preschooler, I remember singing a song called “Deep and Wide.” It was a fun song to sing, but I didn’t really understand that the song was referring to God’s love (Eph. 3:18). I did understand that the Sunday School teachers who taught it to me loved and cared for me.

The Bible Tells Me So

Use the Bible

The song we sing so often with preschoolers, “Jesus Loves Me,” speaks of the Bible. “Jesus loves me! this I know, For the Bible tells me so.”1 The Bible is how God makes Himself known to us, and because of this, it is a foundational concept area that we want to teach preschoolers.

During May, Bible is the Christian concept area in Mission Friends. These are the truths about the Bible to focus on this month as you teach your preschoolers.

Focus on God at Easter

God loves us always

Easter is a time to celebrate! We rejoice at Easter because we are reminded of God’s love for us and the gift of eternal life that He gives us through the death and resurrection of His Son. During April in Mission Friends, we focus on the Christian concept area of God. We can use this concept area with preschoolers during the Easter season as we help them learn about God.

Celebrate Week of the Young Child

Bubbles!

Our most precious resources are our preschoolers! Full of life and energy, they are worth celebrating. Week of the Young Child is observed nationwide on April 8–12 as a time to draw attention to preschoolers as our youngest learners. The theme for this year is Step It Up. Let’s step it up by planning to do at least one thing during Week of the Young Child to celebrate preschoolers.
