We continued working on an art project that we started several weeks ago (more on that later).
Tonight we also started a new book, Training Hearts and Teaching Minds by Starr Meade (Subtitled: Family Devotions Based on the Shorter Catechism).
Question 1: "What is Man's Primary Purpose?"
Answer 1: "Man's Primary Purpose is to Glorify God and to Enjoy Him Forever"
The first lesson explored the idea of what happens when you use things for purposes other than what they are intended to be used for (such as putting marshmallows in a toaster or using white shoe polish to whiten your teeth)--I think we'll explore this lesson a little more next Cookie Baking Night with a few object lessons to illustrate that point. Emily read Psalm 16:11 for us from the Bible (You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.)
This book is set up to go through a question a week with something to talk about each night. We'll probably modify the format to fit the Cookie Baking Night schedule and take a few nights to work through each question. This book shows real promise. I'll keep you posted on my thoughts as we work through it.
Another Cookie Baking Night has come and gone and, as usual, a fun time was had by all.
