Today I have my first return guest to the God Centered Mom Podcast. . . Amanda White from OhAmanda.com (throwing virtual confetti).
One of the many (thousand) reasons I love Amanda is her commitment to help parents know it’s easy to impress God’s Word on their kids’ hearts.
Since we cherished & raved about her “Truth in the Tinsel” Christmas curriculum, y’all better hold on to your horses and get excited because she has just released a new Easter Family guide, “Sense of the Resurrection: an Easter Experience for Families” (click here to get your copy) *affiliate link.
“What I want is a simmering in your heart and in your family meditating on Christ’s story”-Amanda
In this podcast, learn:
-the story behind the name
-the reasoning behind the 12 lessons
-how many activities to do each week
-how the curriculum is organized
-tips for how to personally prepare before teaching your children
Amanda shares why she waited a year to release this program, her current hesitations and her desires.
“I want to lead your kids to the Lord with you.” -Amanda
- Matthew 10:19-20 “do not worry about what to say or how to say it. At that time you will be given what to say, for it will not be you speaking, but the Spirit of your Father speaking through you.”
- Isaiah 55:10-11 “For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven, And do not return there without watering the earth And making it bear and sprout, And furnishing seed to the sower and bread to the eater; So will My word be which goes forth from My mouth; It will not return to Me empty, Without accomplishing what I desire, And without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it.”
- Ezekiel 36:26 “I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.”
- What’s in the Bible-#10 Jesus is the Good News
