Children’s Wisdom

After watching and performing the Ten Commandments (where Moses climbed the mountain to receive the tablets) we asked some of the children what was their favorite commandment.  Here is one of their responses. 

“My favorite commandment is to not be jealous. Because if you want what other people have, you’ll never be happy with what you have.” Dalena

If you want to share your child’s thought please e-mail Denise St John at
