From ELC Director, Dr. Dawne Hill:
Phillipians 1:3, “I thank my God every time I remember you”
As we enter this hectic holiday time of year, I’m reminded of the importance of making memories with our children. I remember telling the parents of the preschoolers I taught so many years ago, that I was in the “memory making” business. The memories that we make with our young children now will sustain them in the future. Think back to those precious memories that you hold dear from your own childhood, the Thanksgivings, the Christmases, the family vacations, memories of those people in your childhood who made a difference to you, who touched your heart.
Being in the “memory making” business as I am, I feel that we also glorify God when we ensure that the children in our Early Learning Center are surrounded by those special “memory making” adults who will carefully tend the children’s fragile souls and pour into them daily. At the ELC, we carefully and purposefully plan opportunities to create memories that will one day be as cherished by our students as those we hold dear ourselves.
Spending at least 15 minutes a day reading to your child, a time of cozy, interactive, and love laced moments is an important way that you as parents can build those kinds of memories at home. I encourage you to also read through the Mind in the Making activities that are attached weekly to each GLOW newsletter, and to download the Vroom app onto your smartphone. The brain building activities on this app are designed for your child’s specific age and gender and are fun and intentional. I guarantee that the fragrance of precious memories will cling to this kind of meaningful sharing between you and your child.
I wish for each of you God’s richest blessings this holiday season and leave for you the words of Tom Hunter from his song, “Memories”.
“What do you remember form the time you were a child?
Do you think of moments memory knows well?
Are there little things, like trinkets, you carry with you now,
That trigger stories memory wants to tell?
Like the people or the places, the toys or food or games.
Like family trips or chores or how you played.
Is it painful, is it pleasant, is it somewhere I between
Are there things you always wished that you could say?
May the memories wrap their arms around you.
May your childhood take you by the hand.
And may what you remember find healing when it hurts.
So the memories will protect you when they can.”
“Therefore, as you have received Christ Jesus the Lord, walk in Him, rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, overflowing with gratitude.” Colossians 2:6-7
