Hey all! We did our overview of Deuteronomy today. I used last year’s lesson found HERE.


So today I will add links:

THIS SONG  posted by Jelly Telly is from the “What’s in the Bible?” series.

THIS is a song by Steve Green (Posted by Christian SingersVEVO) based on Deut 6:5.

THIS is a sign language demonstration of Deuteronomy 31:6 posted by Colonial Church.

THIS is a cute video of Deut 6:4-9 by Mark Teachy.



Pinterest does have a few crafts ideas and some coloring pages related to Deuteronomy.

The most important thing for us to remember, as parents, grandparents, teachers is this:

“18 Fix these words of mine in your hearts and minds; tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. 19 Teach them to your children, talking about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. 20 Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates, 21 so that your days and the days of your children may be many in the land the Lord swore to give your ancestors, as many as the days that the heavens are above the earth.”

All day every day we can be teaching our children about God. The words we use, the love we show. Let’s take some time to pray about being good leaders for the children we teach (our own or others) and that we would follow and obey God 1st, to be good examples for the children who watch us.

Thanks for joining us. Love to you all!

Advent-Day 10-Commandments


This month we are learning about God, God’s son Jesus and Jesus’ earthly family tree.

Today we will learn a bit more about Moses. Our complete lesson on Moses and the 10 Commandments can be found here and in Exodus 19-23, and in Deuteronomy 5 in the Bible. (Our lesson today will be an abbreviated version of this story).

So after Moses led the Israelites out of Egypt, God led them through the desert to a place called Mount Sinai. There, God called Moses up the mountain and He gave Moses the list of rules all the Israelites should follow. God knows rules help keep us safe. When we follow the rules God gives us, it helps us be more like Him. But can anybody ever follow ALL the rules? No. We all make mistakes sometimes. (Rom 3:23) So the rules also help remind us that we all sin, and that we need God’s forgiveness. The Israelites didn’t always follow the rules either. But God promised He would send a savior (someone to save them) from the forever consequence of death. That person would be God’s son Jesus.

Isaiah 33:22 says, “For the Lord is our judge, the Lord is our lawgiver, the Lord is our king; it is He who will save us.”


So after Zechariah and Elizabeth had baby John, and Mary and Joseph still had baby Jesus in Mary’s tummy, the king made a rule that everyone had to go back to where they were born and register because he wanted see how many people there were. (Luke 2) Joseph was from Bethlehem (he was part of King David’s family) so he and Mary traveled all the way from Nazareth (where they lived) to Bethlehem. It was probably very uncomfortable for Mary because her tummy was so big. But obeying this law was part of God’s plan for Jesus’ birth story. So Mary and Joseph went and we’ll see soon what happens when they get to Bethlehem.


Bible Story: Moses and the commandments

Attribute of God: Law-Giver

Jesus’ birth story: Traveling to Bethlehem


Side one of our ornament today is an orange circle of construction paper (you can use any color you’d like) and then we cut out two stone tablets like the one Moses brought to the people that had the rules of God written on them.

Our text reads: God gave the Israelites the 10 Commandments. Deut 5:1-22, Is 33:22IMG_0300


Side two of our ornament is another circle and then we cut out some small shapes and drew on them to look like the town of Bethlehem.

Our text reads: Mary and Joseph go to Bethlehem. Luke 2



Our current “family tree”:


Thanks for joining us again. Love to you all!


Hi all. Today is sort of an interim lesson. Not an exact story per se…but this month we are learning stories from Leviticus-Ruth. Today bridges the gap between stories and gives a highlight of some of Deuteronomy.

Moses had been leading the people from Egypt, through the wilderness and for 40 years God was leading His people as a cloud by day and a fire by night. The people had disobeyed and didn’t trust God so they had to wait until all the people God took out of Egypt had died, and then only their kids and grandkids would go into the land God had promised them. (And Caleb and Joshua, two men who had honored and obeyed God).

The Israelites (God’s people) had traveled a long way and had had to fight a lot of different people. When they trusted God, they won. When they did things their own way, they did not win. But finally, the time was nearing for God to bring His people into the promised land.

Moses was very old. He reminded the people of all God had told them. He reminded them to love God with all their hearts and souls and strength and minds.


He reminded them that they don’t have to be afraid, because God will always be with them.


He also reminded the people to obey God in all they do.


Moses died in the desert and Joshua was put in charge of all the people. Next time we will begin to learn the stories from the book of Joshua, when God’s people FINALLY get to enter the land He promised them.

Thanks for joining us, love to you all!
