I am updating again! My kids are really enjoying the elf, are yours? My little one, Kailani asks each day, “What message did Elfie send today?” and I love hearing that! Kares likes to read them too. Our elf is never really naughty, just silly. I don’t want to teach my kids to be naughty, but I do want them to have fun. Our elf was in the fruit basket, hanging from the light, in the bathroom…nothing to crazy, but fun still. I want the focus to be Jesus, not the silly elf. Here are some hilarious blogs about some people who go over the top! Click here for 1 Click here for the other
Day 9 We were still on vacation. Elfie was hiding in my suitcase. (Smart there, he stayed in my suitcase so that I didn’t forget to bring him home!)
If you are faithful in little things, you will be faithful in large ones. But if you are dishonest in little things, you won’t be honest with greater responsibilities.
Sometimes the smallest little acts of kindness and love can make the biggest difference. Today they had to try to hold the door open for someone. Let them go through first (and do it with a smile)! Sometimes the little things, turn into big things. The more you do kind and loving things, the more you act like Jesus!

Elfie was hiding in the bathroom. He drew the girls a Christmas Tree on the mirror. It was really cute.
Today’s verse was from Acts 20:35
In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’
Today Elfie asked the girls to donate some food to those in need. We talked about helping others and how we are able to help others. We can help by donating some food from the grocery store and not expect anything in return.
Christmas has turned into a focus on presents, that I wanted my girls to GIVE than RECEIVE.
I am so glad that we are doing this bible study. My girls are learning the bible, focusing on Jesus, and doing kind things for others. They have really enjoyed it too. Are your kids liking it? Leave a comment and let me know! Do you have suggestions for a bible verse? Let me know!
