My oldest daughter is 3 years old.
Once Lance and I found out that I was pregnant, we did the normal things people do when they prepare to have a baby.
- We had a baby shower, where people gave us everything we needed for our little bundle of joy.
- I read books and I scoured all the mom blogs I could find.
- My husband and I took a tour of the hospital, where we learned what to pack and what not to pack for the trip that would turn our family of two to a family of three.
- We also took a parenting class, where we learned how to change a diaper, how to swaddle, and some horrible stuff about the birthing process that I will never be able to unlearn.
The day finally came and I gave birth to our beautiful daughter, Andi. She was perfect.
We spent a couple of days in the hospital where I had two or three people to help me nurse. Someone came and brought me food whenever I wanted it. A nurse was always there at a push of the button whenever I had any questions or when I needed help.
It was glorious.
Then we got to bring our sweet girl home.
The nurse wheeled me and my baby to the front door and waited for my husband to bring the car around.
When he pulled up, the nurse helped me out of the wheelchair, then left.
It was at that moment that I realized that I did not know how to put my baby in the car seat.
After many tears from Lance, Andi, and myself.
We finally made it home and I put my baby girl down for a nap, I remember thinking to myself, “What’s next?”
I had all this support at the hospital, and now it is just me and my baby.
Even with all the preparing that we did before I had my baby, and all the support at the hospital, I still felt unequipped.
But I can’t help but wonder how many people have felt like that once they accept Jesus in their heart.
How many kids accept Jesus in their heart at a big event, or VBS, and they don’t have the tools or the support they need to grow up in the things of God?
That is the main reason we wrote the Super Church 2.0 curriculum Grow Up. We want to see the kids in our churches be equipped to grow up in the deep things of God.
We have Super Church 2.0 Grow Up.
I have more good news!
We also have Kinder Church 2.0! We wrote three four-week-long curricula that aline perfectly with Super Church 2.0 Grow Up. The same bottom line for each lesson, just shorted and written specifically for Preschoolers!
So, your grade schoolers and preschoolers can be learning the same thing each week!
