A-B-C Easy As 1-2-3

 As I have shared before, I am doing a YWAM course called the Foundations of Community Development School and I have various projects and assignments throughout the school.
Here is the latest creative project I made (with lots of help from Sophia and Felipe).  We made a video to creatively present the Biblical principle that parents have an important role in the education of their children.

The video was a family project and we had lots of fun being silly, filming and taking photos!  Enjoy the video!

Also, here is an exert (taken from my report of the book: An Introduction to the Old Testament Template, by Landa Cope), where  I explain a bit more about the principle presented in the video.  
In the book,  An Introduction to the Old Testament Template, Landa Cope writes that worldwide educators agree, if a parent is involved in their child’s education then the child will learn more.  Cope also points out that God has called parents to be actively involved in the education of their children, as there are many Scriptures that clearly reveal how God has given parents the authority and the responsibility to teach their children (p. 119).   

Children learn by example, therefore children are constantly absorbing and observing everything that is going on at home. Cope writes that children will automatically take in beliefs and values that are modeled as an example in the family.  Parents need to be aware that in everything they are doing (consciously or unconsciously) they are educating, teaching, and passing on a value system.  As Christians, Cope believes, we need to be intentional in teaching God’s view on the everyday activities of life (p.120).
