2PK Sunday Storytime
Hello friends!! I miss each of you so much and can't wait to get back to seeing you at church. Until then, I thought we could spend some time together each week with a book!

This week's book is "Someday" by Alison McGhee. I have provided an online reading of the book and posted discussion questions below. I encourage older children to find the scripture in the Bible and read it aloud to the family before listening to the video and then read it again afterward to see if a connection can be found.

Psalm 139:1-6,13-14
What a marvelous parent we have in God who knows us before we are born, claims us as God’s child, watches us as we grow, celebrates with us, cries with us, and allows us to make our own choices! The Psalmist celebrates the relationship we have with our parent God in Psalm 139 saying, “O Lord, you have searched me and known me. You know when I sit down and when I rise up; you discern my thoughts from far away…..For it was you who formed my inward parts; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.” 

Our book today shares a mother's love as she watches her child grow up and become a mother of her own. A love not unlike the love God has for us. Perhaps the author had Psalm 139 in mind when she wrote, “Sometimes, when you sleep, I watch you dream, and I dream too…” God’s story – the Bible – is a story of the love and faithfulness of our God for us. “See what love God has given us, that we should be called children of God; and that is what we are!” (I John 3:1). 
Discussion Questions
Name a time when you felt most loved by your mother (or someone who has been like a mother to you?)
What did they do or say to make you feel loved?
How do you know God loves you?
How can you share God’s love with others?
Mother/Child self portraits: Each person draw a self portrait. Cut out your portrait and then paste all portraits together on a bigger paper. Write words around the portraits that express things your mother does that let you know she loves you.
