Hi Journey Kids parents!

This has been a time of trouble for a lot of us, but how many of us can say it’s also been a time of joy? Believe it or not, that’s what the Bible says it should be. During this week’s family worship experience, we’ll discover why the Book of James tells us we should be joyful in the middle of our troubles. 

When it’s time to begin, start your morning of family worship by watching the short lesson video with your kids. (You can access the YouTube playlist here.) It’s a great way to engage spiritually with your family. And don’t forget to participate in the worship videos from Yancy afterwards—one song is for older kids and one is for younger kids.

Here is a snapshot of the lesson details for this week:

Bible Story: Joy and Wisdom in Times of Trouble (James 1:2-5)

Big Idea: God calls us to seek Him for wisdom in times of trouble.

Memory Verse: “If any of you needs wisdom, you should ask God for it. He will give it to you. God gives freely to everyone and doesn’t find fault.” James 1:5 (NIrV)

After the video lesson and music, you can use the attached materials to help take your family deeper into the lesson: 

In all honesty, this is a hard lesson to master. As simple as the concept is, it can be very challenging to find joy in times of trouble. But that’s what I’ll be praying for you!
