Q2: What else did God make?
God made all things.
Q3: Why did God make you and all things?
For His own glory.
I’ve been blogging in various places for 10 years now. And I’ve decided to go back to my original blogging voice: my mommy voice. At least for a little while. As an homage. And as a reminder to people who think I’m not a human being anymore. 😉
We’re learning the catechism. My oldest already knew the first three questions, and my youngest had picked them up as well. But in this stint, for every question they learn, they get a nickle. And after all 71 questions of the first book are mastered, our deal is, they can turn in their 142 nickles for . . .
My mom said it should be a Bible. But it’s not. It’s Garmadon’s Dark Fortress.
So that means they get a 10x return on their investment. That either makes us really, really cool catechists. Or ones that are missing the point. I haven’t decided yet.
I’ve seen puzzle books for catechism, little comic books, flashcards, workbooks. But I haven’t seen what I’m wanting. I want a set of ideas to feel the questions. It’s one thing for Seven to memorize these answers. He can read. He can see them. His logic is better.
But Five is still more kinesthetic. He likes pictures and treasure hunts. He likes hand motions and songs. He likes little things he can stash in his pockets. While he has mastered chatter, he hasn’t mastered abstract words. So I want to make this tangible for him.
And I thought others might want to join me. Throw in your own ideas. Tell me what has worked and what hasn’t.
