Encouraging children from an early age to be grateful and thank God is important. God teaches us in His word that we should always give thanks. That is part of our Christian life and worship to Him.

In these days I have been evaluating several books that we can use for this purpose. Involving children in reading is vital. The first book that our children should know is the Bible. The bible is inspired by God, useful for teaching on many topics. However, there are several books inspired by the Word of God with beautiful illustrations that our little ones can use. Below I will share with you at least 5 books that can be of great help to you.

These books can help you to teach and encourage your kids about thanks giving:

These books can be part of your library and you can use them at any time. Giving thanks to God and having a grateful heart is one of the best teachings we can give to our children. We must encourage them to be grateful all the time!

O give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; For His compassion and lovingkindness endure forever!Psalm 107:1

3 Bible Journaling Printables to Illustrate your Faith

Bible Journaling is one of my favorite hobbies. When I discovered this I was fascinated to be able to integrate art and creativity with faith. I had always had my bible full of notes and drawings. But I never thought that was bible journaling. In these weeks I gave myself the task of sitting down and making my own printables. And this was the result.

I used my tombow markers to draw those topics that I had in my mind about the bible. Autumn is here and it is one of my favorite times, so I decided to create one about thanking God, inspired in Psalm 106:1.

Praise the Lord! (Hallelujah!) Oh give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; For His mercy and lovingkindness endure forever! – Psalm 106:1

I have so many things to thank God for. God is a God of miracles, of then impossible. So I created a printable focused on the greatness and miracles that God does. Because He is a God of miracles.

Also, I woke up one morning with a Bible verse in my mind. That passage of scripture that Jesus is talking to his disciples and Peter answers: where are we going? If you have words of eternal life.

Simon Peter answered, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You [alone] have the words of eternal life [you are our only hope]. John 6:68

Giving Thanks to God

Thanking God for all his goodness with us is an expression of the grateful heart. Giving thanks to God changes all things, changes us inside and transforms our outer atmosphere.

Thanking God for all his goodness with us is an expression of the grateful heart. Giving thanks to God changes all things, changes us inside and transforms our outer atmosphere.

The Bible says in Psalm 100:4

Enter His gates with a song of thanksgiving
And His courts with praise.
Be thankful to Him, bless and praise His name.

Source

The Bible urges us to thank God at all times. We must always enter his presence by thanking him.

There are two things that denote our thanksgiving. First, we manifest our total dependence on God. Second, we express our gratitude to Him for his works in our lives.

Giving thanks is a way to praise God. And according to the Word of God we can do it in many ways. How we can do it?

  • Signing
  • Praying
  • Giving to others
  • In all circumstances
  • With our brothers and sister in the faith

Why are you grateful today? What reasons do you have to thank God, not in a given season, but at all times?

May our hearts, thoughts and actions always manifest the gratitude we have for God and his wonderful works.

Thankful and Blessed Bible Journaling Printable

Hello! Summer is almost ending but, fall is coming… I’ve been working these days with a new printable for my bible journaling time. I wanted to make something inspired in fall and autumn. I love this season! The colors, the fragrance of apple and spices, everything!

I also was inspired by a few bible verses that I will share with you:

1 Thessalonians 5:18
in every situation [no matter what the circumstances] be thankful and continually give thanksto God; for this is the will of God for you in Christ Jesus.

1 Chronicles 16:8 [ Psalm of Thanksgiving ] O give thanks to the Lord, call on His name; Make His deeds known among the peoples.

The word of God says to us that we must give thanks in every situation, because that it is the will of God.

I hope you can enjoy this freebie / printable inspired in those verses and in this season that is coming soon!
