    When I taught pre-school, one of the things I did was use food-color to make food the color of focus. I also have a recipe of play-dough and made that the color. Equal parts salt and flour, 1 Tb. of oil, and the food color. You can add peppermint but they’ll eat it. Believe me, I learned that the hard way. As a teacher, I wore the color of focus and encouraged the children to do the same. Each day, they received a token of that color to put in a box decorated with that color. Each day, you might choose a room in the house and point out the focus-color. Then, have them find it the next day. Okay, enough hints from me. Have a colorful time!

    Oh, I forgot to tell you to cook the play-dough, stirring constantly until it forms a ball. Place on wax paper and knead until it looks and feels like play-dough. Cool. Store in air tight container.

    Hi, Leah…I just wanted you to know that I am so grateful I found your site this morning.

    I recently connected with a young girl (28) in Bolgatanga, Ghana while I was there in September.
    Her difficult journey, while pregnant and unmarried, landed her in Accra, under the care of some of my friends there who are Theresians ( Her name is Dorcas Akonga.
    After having her child, Dorcas wanted to return to Bolgatanga to help other young single mothers regain their self-confidence and help educate them. She set up Dakella Youth Mothers Organization.
    I am helping Dorcas through college now, and managing fundraising for this group of girls to get an education.
    The reason I stumbled on your website is this: Having been given a piece of land, we have decided to build a production centre for the girls who won’t be going to school. They will learn to make shampoo and pomade and market it so that they will have a daily income to feed their children. Most of the children are toddlers right now, so in preparing for the schedule of the workdays, we are including plans for daycare.
    These girls have no clue how to begin to teach their children, so being a former teacher myself, (but high school, not toddlers!), i am going to prepare some basic packages for the “teacher” moms to work with. Your site has given me a lot of great insights, and I just wanted to thank you, as I want to bring the spirituality to the lessons…love the Scripture you use…Maribeth

    You can go to our “in progress” website to see more on our mission to help the Dakella girls.….
    (getting ready for a HUGE ABUNDANCE SALE in a week to make money for the production center! wish us luck!)

    Hi Leah,
    Thanks so much for your faithfulness with this post! I’m wondering if you have continued lessons on the Gospel of John? As far as I can tell, you stopped at verse 8. Am I missing something?

      Hi Laura,
      No, you aren’t missing anything! I have been so busy building our nest lately that I haven’t gotten back to posting about our John study. But, stay tuned. I am about to release a simple reader I have been working on for the first 7 verses of John 1. Blessings to you!!

    I was wondering if you have done more inductive Bible study on John following 1:1-5 that you can share. Our church (all age groups) is beginning to do the entire book of John verse by verse soon.
    Thank you!
