She is 7 and a new book for J!

Our St. Patrick's birthday girl! Happy 7th  birthday, Elyse!!  We love you!!

Unfortunately, I know racism is alive and well.  How we will change that though, is to teach truth. Earlier in the school year, Jake and Elyse studied about Noah and his three sons.  They studied about how the Bible says there is only one race of people and that is the human race.  The divisons of Shem, Ham, Japheth do not pertain to a racial division but refers to three different divisions of nations.   Obviously,  we teach this truth  in our family but to also have it in our school curriculum is a bonus!! I found this book, All God's Children by Ken Ham that teaches that same concept. He puts it into rhyming words and colorful pictures  for little ones! Perfect for J!

And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings,
Acts 17:26

Have a great weekend!
