I have always loved writing letters. I have had some pen pals, but none wrote to me as much as I did to them. Not, of course, because they were not amazing friends. I think I might have a knack for writing letters, because I never run out of things to say!
Blogging from the Boonies is doing a link-up each month called Correspondence Connections. Basically many bloggers will be sharing ideas on what to write in letters to sponsored children. I plan on linking up, and here is my first post.
I help out with the four-year-olds at my church every other week. (My church is really big. So they divide up classes by age/grade.) I really love it for three reasons: one, the kids are just soo sweet; two, Mainor is four, and I love to think that he is like them; three, it gives me something to tell my kids.
I share the lesson in my own words for Mainor. I wasn't sure what to write him because I had never had a little kid before. The lessons are usually about David. I try to apply the Bible lessons to life today. The one I plan on using is God gives us good friends (David and Jonathon). I will tell Mainor about my friends and ask a question or two about his.
For my older kids, I tell them about how much I love to be around little kids. I may share the lesson with them as well. I will tell them about serving God and that if we love God, we can show it by loving and helping other people. I also ask about their younger siblings.
Well, I hope this gives you some ideas. I will be sharing some more each month.
Change a life!
