#327: Emotions part 1: FEAR- Do Not Fear, I will be with You

Statistics are showing an increase of worry and anxiety in children. This will be a little different from our usual episode but the Bible has a lot to say about this so we thought we should address it. We will differentiate between fear, worry, and and anxiety and give each emotion their own episode. Today we discuss fear: Are there good fears? ie; fear of fire, or fear of the Lord Can fear lie to us? Why does God tell us not to be afraid? What promise does he give with it **If you would like to hear all of David and Goliath that episode is :#112 "There's no one like you." #307 "What if David had a Bad Attitude" is a shortened version with a different application. Resources we've used for this: "The Worry free Parent" & "Raising Worry Free Girls" by Sissy Goff.

#326: Fireflies and Fish: Good Light or Bad Light?

Psalm 119:105-112 & John 8:12 Kids Bible Stories Podcast: Episode - "Jesus: The True Light" In today's episode, we explore the powerful message of Jesus as the ultimate beacon in our lives, shining brighter and truer than any other source. We learned that Jesus describes Himself as "the light of the world," offering us guidance, peace, love, forgiveness, and direction unlike any other. Unlike deceptive lights in the world, like the angler fish's lure, which may seem appealing but lead to harm, Jesus' light is always genuine and life-giving. We also delved into how God's word acts as a lamp for our feet and a light on our path, guiding us through life's journey. This divine light isn't found in the shows we watch, the advice of friends, or the allure of commercials enticing us to desire material things. It's in the Bible, God's word, which always leads us toward what's truly good. We discussed the importance of discerning between the misleading "lights" of the world—like the temptations of consumerism or messages that encourage disrespect—and the one true light, Jesus, who desires what's best for us. Remember, the next time you're faced with a decision or a direction, ask yourself: does this align with the light that Jesus offers? Key Takeaways: Jesus is the true light that guides us with love and truth. God's word is our ultimate source of guidance, not the fleeting attractions of the world. Always test what guides you by comparing it to the teachings of the Bible.

#315: Noah 4: Into the Ark we Go

Genesis 7:1-10 & Ephesians 4:3 Your kids will love this one! Noah, his family, and allllll those animals wait for 7 days inside the ark for the rain to begin. Kids will note that lions were with lambs, cats with mice yet somehow, they got along. We will hear that God is all powerful; taking care of every single detail. Noah didn’t know how it was all going to work but God didn’t say he needed to know. He just needed to have faith to do what he was called to do and God would take care of the rest: including making those animals get along. We also discuss how we are to "Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace." As christians we won't all look the same, have the same talents and weaknesses and we will disagree at times, but it’s that same love of Jesus, that same goal of following Him that reminds us to work through problems with peace in order to keep working together to help others know Jesus.

#304: Prayer Changes Us

Psalm 66:19 & Matthew 7:7-8 Join us in an our very own original story about a boy who is anxious for tomorrow's test. When he tells his sister his worries, she suggests they pray about it. His sister reminds him of the Bible verses they've heard about prayer and soon, he is feeling less anxious. We will touch on the fact that prayer does not always mean we get exactly what we want. Sometimes the situation does not change BUT prayer can change our hearts. No prayer ever goes unanswered. I remind the kids that if the prayer is not answered how we wanted it to it does’t mean God isn’t listening, it doesn't mean he does’t love you, or isn’t powerful enough to change a situation. God's timing and knowledge is better than ours and we can trust Him. Please join us in sending prayers to the children at Oasis for Orphans. The kids can send their prayers here To enjoy the bonus content for episodes and support this podcast for kids all over the world to enjoy, go here.

#303 Man in the Mirror

James 1:19-25 Today's story reminds us that if we hear God's word but don't actually obey, then we are like a man who looks in the mirror, walks away, and forgets what he looks like. I try to connect the dots for the kids in a way they will understand and be able to apply this story to their own lives. I hope you all enjoy!

#300: Tag You're it Elisha; Elijah part 8

1 Kings 19:19-21 If you have missed any episodes in our Elijah series, I would highly recommend you go back and listen to them because the episodes build upon each other. Today Elijah finds the man who will be taking his place… Elisha. Elijah throws his cloak onto Elisha symbolizing that he is next....tagging him to take his place. We discuss that when God called Elisha, he was doing normal, every day work. Sometimes our work or tasks may seem "normal"( ie: learning to read, helping with the dishes, etc) BUT they all have purpose when we do them with excellence to glorify God AND often God uses those things to prepare us for what's next.

Exodus 19:1-4, Luke 1:30-33,1 Kings 3:5, 2 Timothy 3:16, 1 Thessalonians 2:13,Isaiah 40:8, Hebrews 4:12, Matthew 24:35, John 14:26,& Romans 8:11 Today, we are doing something a bit different than our normal episode because I want to answer a question that many children have been asking me. In last weeks Elijah episode, we heard that God spoke to Elijah in a whisper and kids have been asking, "Does God still speak to us today?" I will do my best to answer that question today! The kids will learn that: 1. During Elijah's time, they didn't have the entire Bible. 2. The Holy Spirit was sent after Jesus' resurrection (Acts 2:1-4) 3. We have the entire Bible, the written word of God now. 4. Now, believers have the Holy Spirit dwelling inside us (John 14:25-26) We will return to our normal episode format with Elijah next week so tune in!

#298: God is in the Whisper: Elijah part 7

1Kings 19:9-18 & James 4:8 On today's episode we find Elijah hiding in the cave. Instead of hearing God fuss at Elijah, we hear him as a gentle, loving father asking Elijah what he is doing there. Wind blows, the earth quakes, and fire burns; we see God's mighty power on display but even in that, he is still found in the whisper. God is close enough that Elijah can hear his whisper.

#297: Sometimes you Just Need Food and a Nap; Elijah part 6

1 Kings 19:1-8 As you have followed along with our Elijah series you've probably noticed Elijah has been obeying God and doing the right things, but today he gets some scary news from Jezebel and now Elijah says he has had enough. God's response to Elijah's cry is beautiful. He doesn't downplay Elijah's feelings or scold him. Instead, he sends an angel to provide food and water. When we are hungry and tired, our emotions can run wild. Sometimes it's those simple provisions of food, water, and rest that seem simple but are exactly what we need for our strength. The kids will hear that Elijah was a real human with real feelings and fears; real needs like food and rest. When we feel like we've had enough, we can talk honestly to God just like Elijah did and God will be right there to listen and comfort us too.

#296: The Forecast Calls for Rain; Elijah part 5

1 Kings 18:40-46 & James 5:17 Today we hear Elijah tell Ahab that the drought is finally ending. Elijah knows the rain is coming but it is not until the seventh time that his servant makes the trip to the sea that there are signs of rain. Elijah faithfully waits and sends his servant to look over and over again. God was with Elijah when things happened immediately like in last week's episode, BUT He's also with him in the waiting. I point out that the Bible says that Elijah was a man like us. That gives us encouragement that we too can pray fervently as he did. We have a few more exciting Elijah episodes left so make sure to tune in!

#295: Fire Falls at the Showdown: Elijah part 4

1 Kings 18:16-39 & Exodus 20:3 This episode is full of action when Ahab and Elijah meet again. Elijah asks the people "How long will you try to serve both Baal and God?" The people have wandered from God and God is calling them back to His loving arms. Elijah has set a challenge; their Baal versus God. Tune in to see what happens. We will discuss: 1. That Elijah didn't do this to make much of himself but to make much of God. You hear that in his speech. 2. God is patient. He calls the people back to Him.

#294: Right is Still Right Even if No One Else is Doing it; Elijah part 3

1 Kings 18: 1-16 If you have missed any Elijah episodes, please go back & listen because these build upon them selves. Today we meet faithful Obadiah who hid the Lord's prophets in caves to protect them from Jezebel. We connect Obadiah's actions to what St Augustine said, “ Right is right even if no one is doing it; wrong is still wrong even if everyone else is doing it.” Many of you are about to start a brand new school year. As you start, I want you to remember the story of Obadiah and Elijah. Some days at school you may feel like your family is the only one who thinks and acts the way God wants us to, it’s still right even if it seems like you’re the only one AND remember this, the enemy would love for you to believe the lie that you’re the only ones left doing what is right, loving and obeying God. That is not true though. In today's story and all throughout the Bible you can hear over and over again that there is always a remaining group of people who love and follow Jesus. You aren’t alone.

#293: The Widow's Never Ending Flour Jar; Elijah part 2

1 Kings 17:7-24 & 2 Corinthians 5:7 ~Make sure to listen to part 1 as these build upon themselves. ~ Today we hear God tell Elijah to go to the widow that he has commanded to feed him. Remember, the drought is still happening so food is scarce. The widow was a real woman with real feelings and fears. Elijah's request required the widow to practice faith. She had to choose to walk by faith and not by sight. Tune in to hear how she handles it, if God keeps his word (spoiler alert, He always does,) and how God can use you just as he used the widow.

#291: You Have Nothing to Prove

Luke 4:1-13 This is part 1 in our short series where we find Jesus being tempted in the desert by the devil. We will learn that the devil is always a slick and slimy one trying to twist God's words. The devil tries to tempt Jesus into proving that He really is God's son. Of course Jesus is God's son! Jesus knows this truth and does not need to prove anything to the devil so He does not fall for it. We learn that we too can remember the truth of whose we are: we are loved children of God. We apply this truth to help us w/ pride or the feeling to prove ourselves. To connect, with me, simply go to ⁠kbspodcast.com

#289: God's Love Never Changes; Solomon XIII

1 Kings 14:20-31, 1 Kings 15: 1-15, & Psalm 136: 1-4 Out of respect for each families ages and stages of life, I have adapted some of this. Please go back and read the scriptures yourself to see what’s appropriate for your family. The Solomon episodes also build upon themselves so please go back and listen to ones you may have missed. Today we went through a little bit of a family tree as we followed the kings. We find that most of these kings follow in their father's footsteps and do not follow God. Nevertheless we hear that God does not withdraw His love and is faithful. He kept Jerusalem safe, sticking to His promise we heard Him give David many episode ago. The kids are reminded that God's love never changes. We see this evidence as we hear today's events and read Psalm 136. We have 1 more episode in our Solomon series.

#288: A Healed Hand but Hard Heart; Solomon part XII

1 Kings 13:1-10, 33-34 & Numbers 8:16-19 Today we hear King Jeroboam's hand suddenly become paralyzed but then miraculously healed when the man of God prays for it. This still does not change Jeroboam's heart and he continues to do evil. We take note that even though Jeroboam still seems like the bad guy, the man of God prayed for him. The kids are reminded to think about someone they know who is far from God and to pray for that person this week. Please join me in helping with the hunger crisis in Somalia.

#287: Two Golden Calves should Fix my Problem: Solomon part XI

1 Kings 12: 25-32 & Exodus 32:1-4 If you’ve missed the previous Solomon episodes, please go back and listen or you may be confused as to how we got where we are in today’s story. It is listed as Solomon part I. Today, we hear King Jeroboam set up 2 golden calves as idols for the people in his kingdom. We define what idols are and also prompt the kids to talk with their families about: 1. Ways to grow your love for God 2. Discuss the shows you watch and see if you notice characters idolizing things. 3. Talk about what it looks like to like something versus loving something. God is a loving father & it’s His pleasure to give us good things & see us enjoy them but there’s a difference b/n enjoying something and loving it more than God.

#286: This is My Doing: Solomon part X

1 Kings 12:20-24 & Romans 14:11 The kingdom is divided: Solomon’s son Rehoboam is king over the southern kingdom, Judah while Jeroboam is king over northern kingdom, Israel. King Rehoboam is not happy about this and assembles an army to win back his kingdom. Will they battle OR does God have a different plan for their lives? We discuss the fact that God says "This is my doing." We are reminded God is always in control and has plans for our lives even when we can't always see it or feel it. We can trust his control and His plans. Why do I trust Him? I trust Him because I can look to the cross to see the His rescue plan for us. The cross reminds me of the cost Jesus paid, the love we are given, and the salvation we didn't earn or deserve. All of this reminds me, I can trust God's plans.
