    What a good idea and a worthy concept for them to learn! 🙂

    I love the analogy that you used. It’s so helpful for kids to have big topics brought down to their level. I agree that they can really grasp a lot more than we think they can and the lessons stay with them too.

      Thanks! I just don’t want to leave them confused when they ask questions about God! Glad you liked.

    This is really a great way to explain. I agree, when they start these discussions it is amazing the type of conversations you can have and the impact of those conversations. Great post!

      It’ll be interesting to see many years from now, how these conversations have stuck with them! That’s my prayer. Thanks Kemi.

    I love that you have these great conversations with your kids! Those if life questions are always tough. It’s funny because we just discussed God’s grace in my bible study a few weeks ago. If I could add something, you said there is nothing we could give God as a thank you but I believe there is. Choosing to live our life for Him day by day, reading the Bible, praying, and being a reflection of Jesus is saying thank you for the grace God showers on us. You did a great job explaining this to your kids because this is such a tough thing to fully understand. Thank you for sharing this. ????

      I love that you added something here! You’re so right, doing our best to show Him our gratitude by living out the example set before us is the greatest way we could say thanks. Learning Him, loving Him, and exemplifying the life of Jesus, that’s what we strive for. Thank you so much for your comment!

    Aw, I love that you compared it to still getting dessert; that is so brilliant! God is good to us! 🙂

    • Reply Jen Enoch 2016 at 9:57 PM

      Abbey, God is always the “dessert” of the story :)! They really did get what I was saying, and now my son is always pointing out moments of grace. He loves that he got it, and can put it to use!

    I love this! I’m sure your explanation really connected with your children. It’s funny, memorable, and makes perfect sense. This entire post is great! I have already pinned it and will be sharing it with my email followers soon!

      Lauren, I’m so happy you liked this! Please, share away. I can’t tell you how many times my son has used the word “grace” since teaching him this. And what makes me so happy is that he uses it correctly! He really got it! Thanks for taking time today.
