Note to parent or teacher: Here is a 15-minute 0–5 lesson plan on how to have courage when faced with difficult or challenging situations.
Talk about anything that your child may be facing that is difficult to do, or challenging to face. The next article discusses how God can give comfort, power, and instruction for the difficulties and challenges in our lives.
Read “With God’s Help.”
Pray together for Jesus’ guidance regarding whatever difficulty you had talked about earlier.
Read “Carina and the Christmas Play.” Highlight how sometimes there are practical steps we can take so that we can be courageous in facing challenges. Can your child think of one or two ways that Carina was able to be courageous in facing her fears? See if you can come up with a few practical steps that will help your child with her challenges.
Claim Psalm 37:5 (NIV), “Commit your way to the LORD; trust in him and he will do this.”
