Hey, parents, did you know that God’s creative spark isn’t just for adults? It’s in your children too! As parents, you have a unique opportunity to nurture and encourage their creative identities. Creativity isn’t just about artistic talents; it’s a way of thinking and problem-solving that can be applied to every aspect of life. God has designed your children with unique gifts and interests, and your role is to help them discover and develop those talents. By embracing their creative identity in Christ, you’re not only fostering their personal growth but also helping them understand how their creativity can be a powerful tool to serve others and fulfill God’s purpose in their lives.

Proverbs 22:6 (NIV)

Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old, they will not turn from it.
