That’s BIG!

I was teaching our kids about David and Goliath and decided to show them just how big he would have been.  Telling kids he was 9 feet tall just didn’t register for them.  I cut a long butcher piece of paper as tall as Goliath and them measured my kids against them.  They loved that!  We decided Ayla would have been to his shins and Isaiah to his knees!  Now that is big.  We talked a lot about how that would feel fighting against him and how he was brave because he knew God was with him.  We used this with school starting to encourage our kids that God will give them the courage to do the things they need to do as well, and that He is always with them.
