Is it summer yet for you?
We’ve nearly reached our summer schedule, and I’m looking forward to more relaxed days with the boys. Reading is something our kids do a lot of over the summer months. They enjoy a little more freedom in their book choices and reading daily keeps their skills sharpened.
In celebration of the coming summer months, I made your kids (and you!) five cheerful Fruit of the Spirit bookmarks. I’ve been thinking a lot about how God sanctifies us and changes us, and these verses are just precious to me. These are available in KJV or ESV. You’ll find the bookmark download at the bottom of the page.
Also, as you scroll down, check out the giveaway I have for you!
The 500 year anniversary of the 95 Theses being nailed to the door of the Wittenberg Church is coming up on October 31, 2017. Make sure your kids know how the Father of the Reformation changed the course of history! I have a free downloadable When Lightning Struck! discussion guide, and a 12-week Martin Luther unit study over on the book page, as well as more information about the book. Also, you can read a substantial portion of the first 8 chapters of the book on Amazon now. Just click on the photo of the book, and it will open up a reader for you.
Giveaway open to residents of the U.S., age 18 and older. Winner must respond to email within 48 hours. Giveaway will end on Wednesday, June 1, 2016 at 11:59pm PST.
Download Your Bookmarks
To download your Fruit of the Spirit bookmarks, just log into your subscriber account, and click one of the large links below (either ESV or KJV). I printed mine on thick white cardstock (this is my favorite because it prints so nicely: Neenah Premium Cardstock, but you can also print on paper and then laminate them–or print on cardstock and laminate for really sturdy bookmarks). You’ll just need to cut your paper into five strips after printing.
You won’t be able to use the Edge browser to download the cards, as Edge doesn’t recognize PDFs. If you need additional assistance downloading the cards, you can find that here.
