Ava's Bible Verse

So my best friend from college Laura has a little girl about a month younger than Ava (we did BOTH of our pregnancies together, albeit long distance) and Laura posted a link a while ago of little Olivia reciting twenty six Bible verses! I was in total shock and awe, it was amazing! Me and Nick got all down in the dumps, because aside from singing with the Seeds of Purpose cd's, we haven't instilled ANY scripture in our children's hearts. Then we were driving around and Ava was singing every word to Love Story, and it wasn't even ON the radio, so we said, 'we're so stupid, of COURSE she can memorize scripture!' So off to Lifeway we went, and got a fun A-Z scripture and activity book! Which I then left under the crockpot, which was bubbling chicken juice all over the place, so all the pages are now a lovely shade of grease-brown. But you can still read it.

She took to 'A' very quickly, but we're gonna keep doing it all week. One a week, and focusing on remembering the ones from weeks before too. You can't really undestand her here, but I wanted my mom to get to see her! She's saying "ask and it will be given to you, seek and you will find, knock and the door will be open to you. Matthew 7:7"


And if you want your heart to just swell with love and admiration, follow this link. And get some tissues ready.
