Bible Story Tips
We read the story “Isaac is Born” beginning on page 11 of the children's Bible Storybook called Bible-Time Stories and Rhymes.
During story, draw attention to the key concepts for this lesson.
Don't forget to ask questions related to the story, for example, “What did God promise Abraham and Sarah?”
We taught our daughters that sometimes we have to wait on God, but we can be sure that he will always do what he says.
After the Bible story and discussion session, we stand up and do the interactive rhyme found in the Bible storybook.
After the story and rhyme, we say a prayer that is related to the Bible story. You can either have your children repeat after you or allow them to come up with their own prayer.

The Bible song for this week is "Rock My Soul".
We cast the song from YouTube to the television, so our children can see the motions on the big screen.
