This series is a staple in our children’s ministry at Westwood. Now they have a podcast! I have been on the look out for a podcast that I can listen to with my kids about racism & privilege- here it is!!
A kids podcast about the things that matter, like Racism, Body Image, and Belonging. Each episode opens up the dialog we’ve begun in our groundbreaking A Kids Book About series. Created by folks who’ve been there. Honest. Important. Relevant. Start the conversation. We know you’re ready.
Children & Family Movie Night | ‘Inside Out’ This Friday, January 15th @ 6pm
Get the popcorn out and take the night off to watch Inside Out, a 2015 Pixar movie about the importance of being connected to our feelings. Give your family time to watch, share, & learn more about the value of our emotional well-being & mental health. Kick-off the night at a brief family Zoom gathering with Jen at 6 PM, then sign-off to watch Inside Out with the provided conversation guide (download linked above) as a family.
It’s a timely theme for families as we continue to navigate the emotional intensities and mental health toll of the pandemic on our kids and ourselves. As you support kid(s) thru their emotions, stress, & worries- don’t forget to prioritize yourself with compassionate self-care.
Looking for new ways to help your kid(s) process their feelings? Here are a few.
Epiphany is also known as ‘3 Kings Day’. It arrives 12-days after Christmas (January 6th) when we celebrate the kings arrival with gifts for Jesus. They followed the star! The Epiphany church season starts on Epiphany and lasts until Ash Wednesday (Lent).
Epiphany is a time for us to pay attention to what we’re following too! Enjoy these activities, crafts, and reflections this Epiphany season.
Hope you are doing alright during this messy December 2020.
