Parents’ Note

Sunday, October 22, 2017

This week we are learning that God has a big picture through ups and downs. Joseph has a lot of ups and downs. His brothers sell him into slavery. He becomes a respected servant but then goes to jail. Finally, the Pharaoh asks Joseph to interpret his dream and then gives him an important role. God has a big picture through ups and downs. Share your ups and downs with each other at dinner tonight. 

Fun for the family!

-Find something you can use as a dry-erase surface, such as a window or mirror.

-Set out washable or dry-erase markers.

-Draw the axes of a graph, with the left axis numbered 1-10 and the bottom axis showing the days of the week.

-Assign each family member a color of marker.

-Each day, everyone will add a dot to show what number best reflects that day. If it was an amazing day, that’s a 10. If it was a horrible day, that’s a 1.

-Pray for each other daily based on the graph.

-At the end of the week, connect each person’s dots and discuss how you saw God through all the ups and downs of the week.
