Full Manger

The year we studied the land animals of the 6th day of creation I felt like I was living in a barn.  Our five boys were 10, 9, 7, 5, and 1 years old.  To help keep my perspective in the chaos I clung to verses like Proverbs 14:4 “Where there are no oxen, the manger is clean, but abundant crops come by the strength of an ox.”  Whenever I felt myself wishing for a clean, quiet manger I was reminded that would mean an empty manger and a meager harvest. Praise God for full mangers and abundant life, even if they are loud and messy!

If you have your own full manger and are in need of encouragement, or are a homeschooler or animal lover, you can check out our old blog at https://fullmanger.wordpress.com

Below is a chart listing all the animal related memory verses, Bible readings, references for speed drills, and hymns for each week.
