It made me wonder what else I am saying or doing that she is picking up on...
My 10-month-old son has recently started trying to fold his arms for prayers, which surprised us. We had never "taught" him to fold his arms, or even asked him to try. He watched, observed, and copied. This is another lesson to me.
A Children's Songbook hymn that I love is "Teach Me to Walk in the Light" by Clara W. McMaster. The lyrics are so important, especially to anyone who could possibly be an example to a child or younger person.
Teach me to walk in the light of His love;
Teach me to pray to my Father above;
Teach me to know of the things that are right;
Teach me, teach me to walk in the light.
I hope that I am teaching my children to walk in the light of His love; I hope they are learning from my husband and I how to pray to and have a relationship with their Father above; I hope they are learning what is good and right from our examples. I am going to make a more conscious effort to say and do things that will teach my children how to follow their Father in Heaven.
What things have your children picked up on that you do?
