FREE PRINTABLE – He is Risen!

Are you ready for Easter?

I am!

Well, not actually. I haven’t even thought about plans for the day other than church, and we usually host dinner for our family at our house. Other details have not been worked out either. But hey, would anyone expect any different from me? Not likely.

I am ready for Easter in the spiritual sense, though. For years Christmas was my favorite holiday, but in the last few years Easter has become the frontrunner in the favorite of all days of the year. Christmas celebrates Jesus coming to earth, but Easter is when we celebrate Him overcoming death, hell, and the grave when He became the ultimate sacrifice for all of our sins and on the 3rd day resurrected from the dead. He did it all just for us. He is Risen!!!

Nothing excites me more than knowing my Savior paid my complete debt… especially when I am far from worthy.

I decided to make a simple little printable based on Luke 24:5-7.

Then, as they were afraid and bowed their faces to the earth, they said to them, “Why do you seek the living among the dead? He is not here, but is risen! Remember how He spoke to you when He was still in Galilee, saying, ‘The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.’

Isn’t it wonderful? Couldn’t you just shout? He is risen! Hallelujah! Thank you, Jesus!

I want to share this joy with everyone! So I’m sharing this free printable as an Easter gift for each of you.

Free Galatians 6:9 Autumn Printable

With all the change going on in our home, my Fall (or Autumn, if that is your preferred term, 😉 ) decor is more than lacking this year. It’s not that I don’t want to do it. It’s that I’m just way too distracted.

At the same time, I have been working to implement more scripture around our home. I have scriptures for encouragement, fitness, healing, and more.

When I was trying to think of a verse that would fit for Fall (um, Autumn), there was one that stood out in my mind. Not only is it fitting for the season of the year we are in, but perfect for this season of my life.

 

And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.

Galatians 6:9

Since the house is lacking the leaves, pumpkins, and scarecrows at the moment, I decided to make a printable to frame. (I would say that I am going to decoupage it on to a sheet of wood, but obviously I’m not sure I even have the time to do that right now. Maybe next year…) So that is what I did, I made a simple printable with Galatians 6:9 using Fall (Okay, Autumn) colors that I can throw in a frame and place on my piano or coffee bar.

A great reminder, pretty, and a way to help our family memorize the scripture and put it to work.

So while I don’t claim that it is gorgeous or fancy, I thought I would share it with all of you. Just in case there is someone else out there, right now, that needs this reminder as well.

Happy Fall/Autumn and God bless!

The Ultimate Packing List For Labor And Delivery – With FREE Printable

Hello there RSHTH readers!  I’m Stephanie from Crayon Marks and Tiger Stripes, and I am finally making my debut as a new contributor!  I am so excited to be a part of this awesome group of gals.  I cannot wait to share with you what God has placed on my heart and to encourage you in your adventure of Christian parenting!

(Editor’s note: Stephanie actually wrote this post back in August. Due to different things that came up on my end, this post was not put up until now. (Sorry, Stephanie!) Please go to Crayon Marks and Tiger Stripes and catch up on what all Stephanie has been up to. Remember to keep her in your prayers!)

As you may have gathered from other posts, I’m one of the preggos.  I am halfway through my second trimester with my second baby, but let me tell you about the first trimester…sick.  Sick and tired.  Sick and tired every day…all day!  Oh my goodness, the second trimester is GLORIOUS!  I’m only a few weeks away from the 3rd trimester, where things will get less glorious as I become more uncomfortable and start the ever so fun waddle walk.  That just means I’m that much closer to meeting this sweet baby girl so I say…BRING ON THE WADDLE!

Everything about pregnancy is unpredictable.  Same goes for delivery.  Unless you are having a caesarean, you have no idea when or how quickly baby is going to come.  Despite the unpredictableness (yes, that’s a word!) of growing tiny humans and delivering them into the world, you can prepare for the big day by having a bag packed and ready to go weeks before that baby decides to make his/her big debut.  Wondering what to pack?  Here are some essentials to pack for labor and delivery:

 

The Ultimate Packing List For Labor and Delivery With FREE Printable from Raising Sticky Hands To Heaven - RaisingStickyHands.com

 

For Mommy:

  • Id/insurance card/hospital paperwork- You will likely visit the place you are going to deliver before baby is born.  Fill out all paperwork ahead of time because when you are breathing through contractions, you don’t want to be filling out papers.  Ain’t nobody got time for that!

 

  • Comfortable outfits/pajamas/underwear/socks/outfit to wear home- You will be in a hospital gown during delivery (unless you buy one of those fancy laboring gowns) so bring 2-3 days worth of comfy clothes.  You will want out of that gown as soon as you can be out of it!

 

  • Comfortable pillow- BRING YOUR OWN PILLOW!  Hospital pillows are flat, flat, flat.  They are possibly one of the most uncomfortable pieces of bedding to ever exist.  You will be thankful that you brought yours.

 

  • Nursing bra – If you are going to breastfeed, a nursing bra is a must.  Whoever created those was a genius.  Easy accessibility!

 

  • Slippers- Hopefully you escaped the ever so dreaded pregnancy cankles, but if you haven’t, don’t fret.  Most women experience swelling in their legs and feet during the third trimester.  It goes away quickly after delivery, but bring some slippers to keep those tootsies comfortable.

 

  • Toiletries- The hospital provides toiletries, but it is a generic kind. I highly suggest bringing your own toothbrush/toothpaste/floss/deodorant/shampoo and conditioner and whatever other beauty products you want.  Whatever you do, pack lip balm!  With all that Lamaze breathing you will be doing, you will be so thankful that you packed lip balm!

For baby:

  • Outfits- It’s the moment you have been waiting for. Putting those sweet outfits on baby! Pack at least 2-3 outfits and maybe a few more, depending on how long your doctor plans to keep you in the hospital.  Packing baby clothes is honestly the best part of the packing 😉

 

  • Baby book- As a nursery nurse, I have done many handprints and footprints on birth certificates.  It is a skill!!  If you bring your baby book, you can ask your nurse to put those sweet footprints and handprints in your book, and I bet she will be glad to do it!

 

  • 2-3 swaddling blankets- The hospital will provide these, but it’s just fun to bring your blankies for baby.  And oh do babies love to be swaddled!

 

  • Nursing pillow- If you are breastfeeding, the nursing pillows can be a major lifesaver. If you forget it, you can always use the flat hospital pillows. 😉

 

  • Baby nail clippers and baby mittens- Babies tend to be born with long fingernails. Nurses are generally not allowed to cut baby’s nails so be sure to bring your own nail clippers and mittens to cover those sweet hands from scratching their face.

 

  • Baby hat- Babies lose heat from their head rather quickly.  That is why the nurses usually put a hat on them right after they are born.  If your room is cold, your baby will be much happier with a hat on.

 

  • Car seat- You can’t leave the hospital without it! If you need help, most nursery nurses are trained in car seat safety and can help you.

Tech:

  • Phone/Camera/tablet and charger- You will want to make “the baby is here!” phone calls/texts so don’t forget your phone and charger! Some hospitals do professional photos of your newborn as a part of their service, but if they don’t, be sure to bring your camera and charger.

For Siblings:

  • Busy bag- If you have younger children, make a busy bag ahead of time with things for them to do. Search pinterest for busy bags and you will certainly find something to entertain your toddler.  I really feel that it is important for them to be present and able to bond with the baby during those first few days, but as we all know, toddlers are busy people!

 

  • Gift from new baby to sibling- My 3 year old has already been putting together a gift bag for his baby sister (with mommy’s help, of course!)  He is so excited to give these gifts to her!  How surprised will he be when baby has a gift for him too!?

These are the essential things you will need.  Take it from a mom who has been there/done that and is about to do it again, and an RN trained in OB/nursery.  I got ya covered, sweet mommas!

Hiding Him In Little Hearts ~ Communion & Last Supper (Lesson Plans Included!)

*This isn’t exactly about a memory verse that I taught my girls, but is more about the lesson plan I came up with to teach them about communion. I didn’t have them memorize the scriptures used in the lesson, just used them to get the message across.

Even though my children are still young, I felt I needed to start now in teaching them about communion. At our church, we try to partake in communion at least once a month, sometimes more when our Pastor feels led for us to do so. On one occasion several months ago, as we were getting ready to have communion, my oldest daughter, Naomi, wanted to do communion with us. Naomi is 4 1/2, but she thinks she’s at least 12. 🙂 Her dad and I talked it over and we decided that we wanted to go ahead and teach her about communion. We wanted her to know what it means and why we do it, so that she could understand and have part in it.

I did a little bit of research, but for the most part, I created a lesson plan that I believed fit Naomi’s level of comprehension (preschool/kindergarten). Through the lesson, we taught her the importance of communion and that it is a very serious event. Although it’s a kid-friendly lesson, it still shows the significance of what communion is all about. If you’d like to check out my lesson plan, you can find it here.

I also found a coloring sheet online at sermons4kids.com and printed it off for Naomi to color after the lesson. You can find it here.

Once we completed the lesson, we prayed together and held communion as a family. Now when it’s time for communion at church, Naomi is allowed to join us because she has an understanding of what is going on. Through the lesson, she realized it’s more than just grape juice and communion bread. It’s more serious than that.

How about you, Moms and Dads? Do you realize the seriousness of communion? Or has it become just grape juice and bread to you? Maybe we could use a refresher course on the importance of communion ourselves…It’s really all about how much love our Savior has for us. And that love is a LOT.

Hiding Him In Little Hearts – Verse 6

Colossians 3:20
“Children, obey your parents in all things, for this is well pleasing to the Lord.”

We have obviously been working on this week’s verse for a while. The girls learned it quickly and didn’t have a hard time, but I ended up having to teach a class for our kids at church this week, and chose to base my lesson on this verse. I wanted to wait until I had finished that lesson before I posted my blog.

I have enjoyed working on this verse with the girls. First of all, it truly blesses my heart to hear my 2 1/2 year old and 4 year old quoting scripture. Second of all, this particular verse is an excellent example of how important it is to apply God’s word to your home life. Not only is it important, but it is also affective. We are using it daily in our home and outside of the home. The girls have learned that obeying your parents is the right thing to do, and it is also pleasing to the Lord. It pleases our Father when we do what is right according to His word.

I did an online search to find some crafts/coloring pages to share with the kids. I had a hard time finding coloring pages specific to this verse, but I came across a butterfly. I then remembered learning that butterflies mean “blessings,” and since we get blessings when we obey, the kids were given a coloring sheet with a few butterflies to color. I just did a Google Images search for butterflies and chose a few of my favorite to create a coloring page.

I also came across a neat idea for an Obey O-Meter. After reading about it here (http://www.daniellesplace.com/html/bible_themes_o_-_p.html ), we made our own version of an Obey o-Meter and my girls really love it. The kids got to make their own, but I also made one for both of my girls together and placed it in our hallway. Naomi is trying her best to make sure her arrow stays as close to the happy face as possible! (I’ve included the templates I made for our version if you’d like to have an Obey O-Meter of your own. Look at the bottom of this post, under my name.) After we colored the arrows and cut them out, we taped them to paper clips that went on the side of our paper, that way the arrow could easily be moved up and down.

Along with their Obey O-Meters and Blessing Reminders (aka…butterflies), I sent the kids home with a bookmark featuring this week’s verse. I was so excited when I found these at Lifeway and couldn’t wait to pass them out after the lesson. I hope the kids enjoyed learning this scripture as much as I enjoyed teaching it.
