Learning God's Word: Psalm 23

Usually for "Bible Class," the kids and I will read from The Jesus Storybook Bible one day, color a coloring page from a download I have with a shortened version of the same story another day, then go back to The Jesus Storybook Bible, and so on. Sometimes I will incorporate ideas from the handouts they get in Sunday School. But I'd really like to do more! I'm in the market for a great, theologically sound Bible curriculum (so if you have recommendations, please let me know!), but until then I'm going to try to put a little more effort into teaching my babies God's Word.

This week we read from the Jesus Storybook Bible about "The Good Shepherd." So I decided to spend a little bit more time on talking about God as our Shepherd.


God is my shepherd and will take care of me. (I can trust Him).

Memory Verse:

"The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want." Psalm 23:1

We used THIS website to make the trace page.

We also happened to have this DVD...

I don't plan to always be this elaborate, but we sure had a great time! Looking forward to do something like this again! What have you and your kids been studying in God's Word?

My go-to Smoothie

This is basically what I make every time because I almost always have the ingredients on hand. Unfortunately, I don't measure anything which means I get different consistencies every time. But hey, it keeps life interesting.


  • Water
  • Vanilla Whey protein powder (one scoop)
  • Variety of frozen berries (when your berries are about to go bad, chop them and stick them in the freezer).
  • Banana half (also could be frozen)
  • Spinach or Kale
  • Dark chocolate chips
  • Ice - optional (I only use this if I've put too much water in and need to thicken it up)


Add everything into blender (I currently own the blender my parents got for their wedding 30-some years ago) in the order listed above.


Some people say that smoothies are the best way to get your kids to eat their fruits and veggies. I can't seem to force smoothies down their throats. Maybe they just don't like this recipe... hopefully you'll have more luck! I absolutely love this yumminess.
