Take Comfort: A family lesson on the Beatitudes

Whether you are homeschooling or “suddenly schooling” due to school closures with COVID-19 your family can enjoy learning together from some of the most comforting scriptures in the New Testament. This lesson can also be used with most elementary and middle school Sunday School classes.

Well Fed Family has many free Bible lessons that can be used with a wide range of ages. Each lesson starts with a memory verse, and then moves into a full lesson with questions for discussion. After that there is lots of bonus content that helps cement the lesson in the minds of your children. My favorite of course is a recipe to make and eat together that ties in with the lesson in some way. So you can cook together and talk about things you have learned.

This lesson includes recipes, hymns to sing, a fun aromatherapy project, a little geography lesson, and some additional fun things to explore.

Our family loves Drive Thru History with Dave Stotts. If you want more in-depth lessons on the life and sermons of Jesus check out Drive Thru History: the Gospels.

Healing Oils of the Bible by David Stewart is an interesting book that takes you in-depth with the history of essential oils and their health benefits.

Essential oils vary widely in price and quality. This is the kind I use most often. Lavender, Bergamot, Roman chamomile, vetiver, peppermint, and grapefruit. Or a fun four-pack called Relaxation kit.

Beeswax pellets are an easy way to use beeswax in your homemade body care products. Just a little bit can add a firmer texture to homemade creams and lotions.

Potato mashers are a low-tech way to make this classic comfort food.
