God's Mighty Warrior

There is truly nothing more exciting, than to watch our kids desire to know God in deeper ways. They have a desire to understand the Bible, and what it means for them. In their desire, we go there. We read and discuss. His word is just as real in their lives as it is in ours! How cool is that?!

And then....when they bring it full circle - into their play - it makes me smile! Childlike faith. It is pure and special - it could melt my heart.

A couple days ago, Tyler was in quest of the understanding of the Armor of God. Okey doke - to Ephesians 6:13-17 we did go.

Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. -Ephesians 6:13-17

Then - he got an idea....
Why not WEAR the armor?! From the helmet, all the way to the sandals.

And here is where he rescued God's little princess. It doesn't get much better than this!
