David & Goliath FHE

Alysen put on an amazing FHE for us. She had a real life to scale drawing of Goliath that was taped to the wall. The boys were very impressed at the size of Goliath. In fact having heard the story so many times it even brought a different perspective to me seeing the size, I would have been a little intimidated going to battle against him. What great faith David had. Anyway she told the story and we all marveled at the size and then we got to fling little marshmallow at the guy. The kids loved it and I must admit so did I. We would soak the marshmallow in water to get them sticky, and then fling them at the giant with a plastic spoon. It really brought the entire story to life for our kids. I have a truly amazing wife. We are very lucky to have such an amazing mother and wife and mother

I had no idea you were quite the artist! What a clever idea. I love the picture of the kids by the "big guy". We love to watch the Veggie Tales version of this bible story.

By the way, great idea for FHE. What kid wouldn't love launching marshmellows at a giant? Come check out our site sometime. thedahlfamily.org. In case you are wondering this is Jenny (Rogers) Dahl.
