“Can We See God?” Supplement (God-1a)

To help reinforce the article “Can We See God?”—and illustrate how even though we can’t see God, we still know He’s there—go outside and try to look at the wind or breeze. Ask your child to explain how he or she can tell the wind is or isn’t there?

If you live in a place where the stars are clearly visible at night, take time to look up and enjoy this declaration of God’s glory!

Tell your child of loving deeds he or she has done for you that has helped you “see” God.

"God Is Powerful!” Supplement (God-1a)

Here are some things you can talk about or do with your child to help reinforce the article “God Is Powerful!”:

Ask your child what he or she considers to be awesomely powerful. Then take a moment to imagine how God is even greater than that power.

For a fun way to help your child see the power of God’s creative force at work in a seed, try sprouting a seed in a wet paper towel or wet cotton balls. After the seed has sprouted, you can plant it in a pot of dirt to watch it continue to grow. See http://www.ehow.com/how_5258433_sprout-seeds-paper-towel.html.
