Episode 66: Teaching Kids Contentment

God is so good and He gives us everything we need! Our guest today, Laurie Christine, shares ideas of how to teach children about contentment — and what a perfect time of year to chat about this! When we go back to the beginning of the Bible, Genesis shows us that the root of the very first sin can be traced to discontentment with God’s provision and goodness. Our conversation centers around the cure for this, which is found when our lives are filled with Jesus. Laurie gives practical advice and fun tools that will help teach kids contentment.
