The Simplicity Testimony

We will be talking about the Simplicity Testimony in First Day School this Sunday, January 25th. Simplicity is something that most of us want in our family life but it can be super hard to come by. I’ll be talking with the children about being thankful for what we have. We’ll make a gratitude log for our class and one to take home to our family. We’ll also talk about looking inside to figure out our internal “weather report,” an idea that Sarah Rudell Beach mentions in her article,  8 Ways to Teach Mindfulness to Kids. Finally, we will finish up with some yoga. Yoga can be a great way to introduce your child to the ideas of meditation and mindfulness. Please send children in comfortable clothes, with shorts underneath skirts or dresses.
