The Friday faith-filled family fun blog is a series of weekly posts with fun activities based around Bible stories. Today's activity is on the topic of the Psalms..
I love the Psalms. They express every imaginable emotion, and I find them to be very comforting. I'd love for my kids to experience the Psalms in the same way, especially as they grow up and experience all sorts of struggles. When is the best time to introduce the Psalms? I think it is now! And if you have read my blog before, you know that I love to have fun with my kids (and sneak in a little learning at the same time). Since the most famous Psalm is the 23rd Psalm ("the Lord is my shepherd"), I think that is a great place to start. And to understand the meaning of the psalm, it makes sense to learn about sheep and shepherds! Have some fun as a family learning about sheep, and talk about Psalm 23 at the same time.
