Welcome to LuluBeeandKewi.com – Nurturing Saints in our community.
At LuluBee and Kewi, we believe in the power of building up young souls in our community. As children grow, they often grapple with finding their unique talents and understanding their divine identity as a Child of the Most High God. It's crucial that they recognize their inherent worth and the boundless love bestowed upon them by their creator, Our Heavenly Father. Sometimes, all it takes is a little reminder and quality time spent with them to help them develop a stronger sense of self, which can pave the way for their bright future.
One-Hour Activity: "Discovering Your Divine Identity"
- Blank paper or a journal
- Colored pencils, crayons, or markers
- A comfortable and quiet space
1. Setting the Stage (5 minutes): Begin by sitting down with your child in a quiet and comfortable space. Encourage them to take a few deep breaths and relax.
2. Expressing Gratitude (10 minutes): Guide your child to reflect on the things they are grateful for. Help them make a list or draw pictures of these things on the blank paper or in their journal. This simple act of gratitude can help them recognize the blessings in their life.
3. Storytelling Time (15 minutes): Share a simple story or parable from your own life or a well-loved religious story that emphasizes the importance of each person's unique divine identity. For instance, you can narrate the story of David and Goliath, highlighting how David, a young shepherd boy, overcame his doubts and fears to achieve great things with the help of faith.
4. Creative Expression (20 minutes): Encourage your child to express their thoughts, feelings, and unique qualities through art. Provide them with colored pencils, crayons, or markers and invite them to create a drawing or artwork that represents their understanding of themselves as a Child of God. This artistic expression can serve as a tangible reminder of their divine identity.
5. Discussion and Reflection (5 minutes): Sit down together and discuss the artwork or drawings. Ask your child questions like, "What does being a Child of God mean to you?" or "How can you use your unique talents to serve others?" This reflection time can help them internalize their divine identity and purpose.
6. Closing Thoughts and Prayer (5 minutes): Close the activity by expressing your love and appreciation for your child. Offer a simple prayer of gratitude, asking for guidance and protection for your child as they continue to grow and discover their unique talents and divine identity.
This one-hour activity is designed to foster a deeper connection between you and your child while helping them recognize their worth and purpose as a Child of God. It's a technology-free, heartwarming experience that can have a lasting impact on their self-esteem and spiritual development. At LuluBee and Kewi, we're dedicated to supporting families in nurturing the divine potential within every child in our community.
