My son's football practice will soon start at 6:30 am followed by a long day of school. The earliest that I will get to see him will be 4:30 pm. During those long hours a lot of life takes place and sometimes they need a little pick-me-up.
How can I encourage him and fill his soul with truth? With little nuggets of truth from the Bible!
I've put together a list of a few verses that I can share with him during the upcoming football season. I know these few verses will motivate and encourage him just when he needs it most. Do you have certain verses that you share with your children during specific times they might be going through? Please share them with me so that I can add them to my list!
You'll notice a couple of verses from both the New International Version and The Message - I love the way The Message translates some of the verses so I had to include both! :)
So, how can we incorporate these verses into their everyday life? We can:
*use a dry erase marker and write on his/her mirror
*jot a note and tape it to the back of their school id
*put a sticky note in their binder/spiral
*and, the obvious - you can always send them a text!
Do you have special ways that you like to encourage and motivate your student-athlete? I would love to hear ideas of what other moms do to let their kiddos know they are thinking about them. The older they get the harder this becomes so I need extra help in this department!
And, to help you out with even more back-to-school ideas, I'm joining up with an awesome group of bloggers for our Back-to-School Blog Hop! Be sure you "hop" over and check out their posts too!
