Week 1 - Acts 17:24-25

Welcome to Week 1 at Grow Little Seeds!

If you have not already read the post for this week at Sow Little Seeds, we encourage you to head that way first and then look over the information and resources we have provided there.

You may also want to read our Getting Started page and begin this week by printing memory verse cards, making boxes to store them in and preparing progress charts for your family.

Below you will find a list of links to more printable activities on our blog. You can always find links to current and past printables on the side panel under our "Pages" list. We have prepared various activities for three different levels of learning: beginner/easy [level 1], intermediate [level 2] and challenging [level 3].

These activities include Word Searches, Word Scrambles, Cut-Out Words, Trace & Draw activities as well as other fun ways to practice the memory verses each week and consider what God wants us to learn from them.

Throughout the beginning part of each week [generally Sunday through Wednesday] you may find more posts on our blogs with ideas for memorizing, studying and exploring God's Word together. Each week, we have a theme or several themes in mind. This week our memory verse is Acts 17:24-25.

"The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples built by hands. And He is not served by human hands, as if He needed anything, because He Himself gives all men life and breath and everything else."

This verse has been shortened for those who are memorizing at levels 1 & 2.

This week our central thought is on the God who made us.

Who is this God?
What did God make?
Why did God make us?
If God made me, do I belong to Him?

These are some questions you may want to explore this week as you learn these verses with your children. We will continue to build on these thoughts throughout the coming month.

We encourage you to read through the discussion questions and pray that God will lead you as you begin talking with your family about these verses. Pray for the hearts of your children. As you plant the seeds of God's Word, the Bible, into their minds, continue to nourish that seed.

Water it with reminders of His truth throughout the day; look for opportunities to talk with them about this God who made us.  Feed these seeds with the light of Christ as you reflect His love in your conversation and interactions with your family. And be patient as you wait for those little seeds to sprout up and show some fruit. We may plant and water, but God is the one who gives life - He is the one who makes things grow. Trust Him with the hearts of your children - He designed each one of them and loves them dearly.

We are so glad you have joined us this first week and pray that you will be encouraged by the material provided here on Grow Little Seeds and our companion blog Sow Little Seeds.

In His great love,
The Little Seeds Team
