Welcome to DJ's Big Backyard!
Hi Friends and Happy August! This month we’ll be learning about being prepared! We can be prepared by listening to our parents and teachers. We can make sure we have all the supplies we need to complete our homework or a project.
Do you know how else we can be prepared? By reading the Bible! The Bible teaches us how to be the person God wants us to be. God loves us and wants to help us to be prepared for life!
The boy grew up and became strong, filled with wisdom, and God’s grace was on him.

Stewardship is based on the truth that all we have and all we are comes from God. We have the chance to thank God for the blessings He gives us. By giving back a portion of our time, talent, and treasure, we are able to show God gratitude for all He has done and continues to do in our lives.
God has given each of us special talents. We can show our love for Him by using our talents to help others. Think of a way to use your talents to help someone in your family.
The Adventures of Geraldine Wookins by Karin Kaufman
Young Geraldine longs to have adventures as thrilling as those in the Book of Tales, the book her papa reads to her and her brother Button at night. More than that, she wants to be brave—a seemingly impossible task in a world where ravens throw black shadows over the earth and wolves prowl barren lands in search of their prey. But Geraldine is a mouse. The weakest of ground things. Why was she, who wants so much to be brave, created by God to be small and quivering?
