Bedtime Blessings

I am one who cannot study my bible with back ground noises such as tv and people talking so I redid one of our spare bedrooms into a sewing/reading room. It is really nice to get away and read with no distractions. 

While I was in there this morning I came across a book titled BEDTIME BLESSINGS by John Trent, Phd.  It is a book of activities you can do to help your little ones learn about God and stay interested in Him for awhile, hopefully, a life time.

My youngest daughter is not a firm believer in any form of religion.  She is  spiritualistic, she says.  Whatever that is, that is what she is.  I have her daughter every weekend though and we take her to church.  My daughter has no problem with this.  I have decided to do some of these activities with her and one is writing a letter to God every night.  I think it is such a cool idea.  She can talk to me about what she wants God to know and I will write the words for her and let her pretend to write.  This book is filled with Great ideas like that.  I am going to donate it to our church when I am done with it cause there are many young couples with children in there and I know they would use it.

I think I may be the only way my grand daughter will learn about Jesus and I am going to do what I can to make sure she does know.


  1. I think the letters are a beautiful idea. And I think that you are beautiful as well for teaching your granddaughter about Jesus. Something that I'm sure she will never forget Garnet! Love Di ♥

  2. Recently my oldest daughter was complaining about not knowing what to do about something I told her to try praying and asking God for guidance but she told me she into religion and I should know that by now and yes I do know it but I live in hope thay one day my daughters will find how good it feels to believe in God our father.....

  3. JoAnn..I am in the same boat with both mine. One believes but only when it is convenient and the other is 'spiritual'. It saddens me.

  4. Nice post...thanks for sharing...blessings...soraya

  5. Great idea!! I wish my little 7 year old grandaughter lived closer to me and we can do this. That is a great idea to donate it to your church library. You are a good grammy!
