We spent the morning at our local animal park, Busch Wildlife. Brandt is 2 1/2. Instead of quietly listening to talk about God creating all the animals, he wanted to run from exhibit to exhibit. So I took pictures to talk about later. The lessons are to teach when you can; try telling the biblical principle in another way. Perhaps you could reread Genesis 1 yourself, or look at these pictures with a young child who has no free animal park nearby.
About Carol Brandt
I earned a B.A. in History from Florida State University and M.Ed in.Higher Education from Florida Atlantic University. I taught high school social studies before “retiring” to full-time homemaking and raising two daughters. Now I love being a grandmother to four boys and a girl. I have also raised five collies.
My husband, John, was an optometrist, who worked tirelessly for his profession through private practice and as a consultant, and served on the Board of Trustees of Illinois College of Optometry for twenty years.
Ernest Reisinger was my chief mentor in this warm-hearted application of Calvinism. He gave me many books! The Founders Journal and Founders Conferences, Martyn Lloyd-Jones, and Charles Spurgeon have been other sources of Reformed thinking as well as the other warm-hearted ones listed in my book, “Warm-hearted Calvinists.”
