A new tool called Baby Signs is helping babies learn to communicate with sign language before they can talk. The video below is a 13 month old little girl who is learning to read.

Do not underestimate the learning potential of your baby or the babies in your children’s ministry at church. From this video I see two important lessons:

  1. A child is never too young to start learning about God.
  2. Fill your home and church nurseries with items that teach about God.

    Okay, she’s not technically reading but rather memorizing the way words look, but it is still remarkable for a baby her age to be able to do that! I’m very impressed. She’s cute, to boot.

    I have always enjoyed the impact cradle roll classes have had on the babies. A lot of people think it’s basically babysitting so parents can go to their own classes, but when your 18-mo-old is humming Jesus Loves Me, it is so sweet!! You know it’s sinking in, even if it takes several months. I think it’s proof that cradle roll classes should get just as much planning and interest as the rest of the classes.

    So then wouldn’t logic dictate that they have something to talk about before they get there and that the “innocent” speak of God before they die some horrible death in this innocent state?

    Also, lets look on the dark side and assume this baby isn’t mauled by a pit bull & killed and grows to maturity… what a great start to a life serving God.

    Just a thought… :)

    If that 18 month old on Americas Funniest Home Videos could recognize and identify the American presidents, why shouldn’t the children of Christians be able to recognize and identify “God things”? My sons and my grandchildren carried/carry on conversations about God creating things and loving us and wanting us to be good way before they commit their lives to Him. Planting the seed, planting the seed, planting the seed. Their little minds will be filled with something—oughta be something good and relevant to their eternity.

    When we say our nightly prayers and come to the part of what we are thankful for, Kobi has recently been saying our salvation. Does she have much idea about this? I doubt it. We do try to explain about communion as has been mentioned on other comments. Kobi has said for some time her favorite part of the Bbile is Jesu dying on the cross. I agree, we need to put good things in their minds. All you people who were raised around church, didn’t you play church?

    When my three children were babies I taught cradle roll. The babies that were in class every week began to understand the songs and pick up on so many different things. Kids that came ever so often were always so far behind the ones that were there every week.

    Deut.6:7-9 “Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates.”

    If we do not strive to teach our children 24/7 about God, they are not going to receive the baton when we pass it on to them. 3 times a week in church for 4 hours just won’t cut it. You must teach them when you sit, walk, lie down and get up. Every part of your life must speak of God.

    I thank you all for not jumping on me and realize I was pushing the point to make a point.
    After I hit the ‘PUBLISH YOUR COMMENT’ button I thought- “Don, you may offend”. But I meant no offense:)

    We’re “nice” people here, Don 😉

    I understood what you were saying.

  8. NB says:

    Don, I’ve learned that people around here are usually pretty forgiving.

    Hey Brandon,

    You have some good points. And you are right, life is tough. I too have felt like a knock down blow up clown. I just didn’t know how to describe it that well. I’m glad you shared.


  10. Neva says:

    Me too, and i hate the AFV ones where it is obvious that someone got hurt–they are just not funny—I dont care whether it is men, women or children that have been injured—not funny to me. I do like the ones where someone jumps out of a cupboard and scares someone or when cats try to jump and catch the ceiling fan. Those make me laugh.

  11. The Preacher's Household: says:

    I like the ones that shows funny babies or kids. They are a joy and I laugh often.

    Brandon, a gassy knock down blow up clown fits into this crowd really well. Most of us have been there. Also, the good thing about the internet is that we never know about your gas until you tell us. Maybe we all have gas or ibs and are just silent about it. We are definately all clowns. Hang in there and enjoying blogging.

    BTW, I really like your about me picture. It should be made into a poster with a Father’s loving arms caption. You could sell that one.

  • it's still early. :)
  • no worries. Luke is a very popular gospel during the Christmas season. 😜 #BabyJesusStory
  • Mitch Moreland has a combined 1.6 WAR since the start of 2011 at a premium position (DH/1B). That position needs to produce.
  • definitely don't disagree with that. We will miss his glove. But he had such a quiet bat for someone at first base.
  • I only disliked him when he was at the plate.
