- Chapter 7 begins with a section on the author’s beliefs… “The Bible tells us, ‘For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.'” She then asks, “Have you received God’s free gift? If not, you can right now through prayer. Tell God that you believe Jesus died on the Cross to pay for all your sins. Ask God to forgive you for “missing the mark.” Then place all your trust in Christ and receive his forgiveness. If you have done this God says you have passed from spiritual death into spiritual life. You are now a new creation in Christ all because of the blood of Jesus!”
- In the Notebooking Journal lesson 7 questions they ask: What does a person have to do to be forgiven for their sins once and for all and receive life everlasting? The person must believe that Jesus died on the cross for his/her sin and accept the forgiveness that comes from Jesus’ blood.
Of course we as Catholics believe that Jesus died on the cross for our salvation, but we do not believe in “Once Saved, Always Saved.” Amy Welborn has a great chapter in Prove It, Church on this. She says, “The easiest way to see the difference between the Catholic and evangelical viewpoints on salvation is this: Evangelical and fundamentalist Christians see salvation as a moment. Catholics understand salvation as a process.” She cites 2 Corinthians 2:15 and 13:5, Philippians 2:12, and 2 Timothy 2: 11-13.

A few weeks ago, maybe even a month we received our butterfly larva in the mail from Insect Lore. This is always an exciting adventure! Watching this metamorphosis take place is just incredible!

An Apple A Day (over 20 apple projects for kids) by Jennifer Story Gillis also had some great ideas. We tried the apple star prints on pg.33 although the stars weren’t as easy to make out as we would have liked. We had fun painting and trying anyway 🙂 I hope to try making the apple wreath and homemade applesauce soon.
As the children “painted” I read aloud The Song Of The Apple Blossom Fairies by Cicely Mary Barker and Johnny Appleseed by Madeline Olsen.
