God’s Wonderful Creation

I am really excited to have Cheryl Pickett as my guest poster today. You can find out more about her in her bio below. Kids and animals, more often than not, they go together like peanut butter and jelly. What’s great about that is God gives us lots of opportunity to use this connection to help build our children’s faith along with teaching them about His wonderful creation.
