While we made cookies today, Anne I listened this Adventures in Odyssey episode. I remember listening to this dramatic telling of the story over and over again as a kid.
She also got to watch this cartoon version of the Esther today.
Most children's Bible include the story of Esther, so pull it out and read it this weekend. You can even read the directly from the adult Bible. It's a short book and full of drama and intrigue.
Some ideas to talk about with your little sprouts:
- God had a great purpose in mind for Esther. God has a purpose for you, too!
- Esther had to be brave to take a stand. She trusted in God and he gave her the courage she needed.
- Even when men make evil plans, God is still in control.
- God protected the Jews. He protects us everyday, too
Tonight some girlfriends from my Esther Bible study are coming over and we are going to watch One Night with the King.
