"I am who God says that I am"!
I DECLARE THAT, "OUR CHILDREN ARE CREATED TO UNIQUE"!
I just love this word. When God gave it to me, I thought that it would be too difficult for young children to grasp BUT I was so wrong. The word unique means; different, one and only, rare, exceptional, unequaled, unmatched and peculiar. My My! Can you see God's heart for wanting this word declared over our children? It's also a great way to introduce new vocabulary which is always fun. This word is also a GREAT way to teach children to embrace and be sensitive to the uniqueness found in others.
"For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them." Ephesians 2:10
"But now, O LORD, you are our Father; we are the clay, and you are our potter; we are all the work of your hand." Isaiah 64:8
QUESTION: How do we get our children to embrace the power of being "different, rare or peculiar"? How do we dispel the lie that our children have to "fit in" or be like everyone else to be accepted?
ANSWER: We give em' the truth!
The Word of God is alive and active, and His word will accomplish the mission that He sends it on...So let's SPEAK LIFE to Kingdom Kids!
Find creative ways to teach your child what the word "unique" means. If you have older children, ask them to reveal something about themselves that is different from others; personal trait, talent or skill. Remember, for younger children, you are introducing new vocabulary and finding ways to celebrate being different. My book is a great tool for introducing this concept and providing scriptural references to declare over your children.
Feel free to leave a comment about this subject or to purchase a book, go to Amazon or any other online book retailer. You can also, inbox me if you'd like a signed copy.
It really is ALL about the Kingdom! Children are waiting...let's go get em'!

Hi Kingdom Citizen's!
In celebration of God's vision for Kingdom Kids Books, I'm highlighting the declarations and positive affirmations that you can find in my first children's book, "I am who God says that I am"!
I DECLARE THAT, "OUR CHILDREN ARE BEAUTIFUL"!
Beauty can be found in all shades of colors and seen in many little faces. QUESTION: How do we teach our children that God created every "freckle", birth mark or other special feature? How do we get our children to see themselves as God does? How do we begin to redefine what beauty really means because it's not just about the outward appearance? THE ANSWER: Give em' the TRUTH! It's sure to set them free!
God says in Psalm 139 that we are fearfully and wonderfully made, and He has created all of us in His image...PERFECT!
There is NO ONE on this earth who looks like you.
TODAY'S CHALLENGE #2: SPEAK LIFE to Kingdom Kids!
I'm challenging you to be purposeful in telling your child; a child and someone you meet this week how beautiful they are and how much God loves them. Also, I'd like you to challenge a friend to do the same and pass this message of inspiration and empowerment to as many children as you can. (you can share with adults too) Oh yeah, and don't forget to look yourself in the mirror and declare this same truth over yourself!
What are your thoughts about the subject of "Beauty"? How old were you before you really knew or believed that you are beautiful? Do you still struggle with this now? How can we teach children early to understand this concept? Feel free to share your thoughts as we try to live more in truth and love this year.
Many blessings to you!

Hi Everyone, in celebration of the New Year and in an effort to share God's vision for Kingdom Kids Books, I am going to be sending out Declarations from my first book, "I am who God says that I am".
In the book of James, we find that death and life are in the power of what we say. What are we saying to our children and those God have placed in our lives?
DECLARATION #1 "I AM BEAUTIFUL"
In Ecclesiastes 3:11a, God says that He has made everything beautiful and set heaven (eternity) in the hearts of His children! So, why are our kids dealing with low self-esteem and measuring their beauty by the compass of others?
What can we do to combat the real life challenges of peer pressure and the influences that surround our children; young and old? How can we teach our young children to know their beauty (inside/out) so they are empowered to never let anyone tell them the opposite of what God has said?
We can...SPEAK LIFE into the lives of our children! We can be purposeful in communicating the truth of God's word to our children. When was the last time you told your child(ren) how beautiful they are and how much God loves them? How do you communicate what beauty is to children?
THIS WEEK'S CHALLENGE #1:
If you have a child or work with children, I challenge you to look a child in the eye and tell them, "You are BEAUTIFUL" and God LOVES You! This may open up some dialog so, be ready to share as Holy Spirit uses you to make a difference in the life of a child today! Leave your comments below so we can begin to inspire one another.
DISCUSSION: What does the word "beautiful" mean to you?
