Watching Inspirational Movies at Church

Growing up, I was a preacher’s kid. Because my dad was the pastor of a church, I rarely ever missed a service. On a few occasions, we watched films with a religious theme at my place of worship. I always looked forward to these events. As a child, watching movies at church provided a break from the usual choir singing and preaching. Viewing religious films was also extremely educational, enjoyable, and uplifting. After watching an inspirational movie, my mood usually improved immediately. On this blog, I hope you will discover the benefits of watching religious films as well as reading about spirituality and doing other things to find inspiration. Enjoy!

3 Benefits Of Reading To Your Child At An Early Age

Many parents understand that they should be reading to their children often. However, what some people don't understand is that the earlier you start reading to your child, the better your results will be. Here are some things you need to know about reading to your child early in life.

1. Reading Is A Great Way To Encourage Language Development

It is important that the child hear a variety of sounds in their early life. You may not notice, but you probably use the same words throughout the day. There are certain phrases and sounds that you favor. This means that the child is only hearing a certain set of sounds. This is why reading is so helpful. You will expose the child to new words that you might not use often in your everyday vocabulary. Even if the child doesn't appear to be interested, you can still read to them while they play or sit by you. This will help to expose them to all of the sounds and encourage language development.

2. Reading Helps Cognitive Development

Another great benefit to reading is that it will encourage cognitive development. When you read your child a book, there are many things that are going on in the brain. First, they are using their imagination to see the story happening. Even if there are pictures, the child must fill in the visual blanks as you tell them a story. In addition, the child will start to organize events. They will see that there is a beginning, middle, and an end to every story. They will start to make connections to the events in their life as well. This is an important skill to learn at an early age.

3. Reading Can Improve The Relationship Between The Adult And The Child

Reading with your child can be a beautiful experience. When you read with your child, it is important to make it a special time. If the child is not interested, don't push it. You don't want reading to feel like a chore. Instead, take it at the child's pace. If they only enjoy reading for a couple minutes at a time, that is fine. You can build into longer sessions. As you read together it is a great time to snuggle, talk about their lives, ask them questions (if they are verbal) and make them know that they are loved.

These are just a few of the many benefits of reading to your child. Start building a book collection to share with them by shopping at used bookstores and online at sites like pioneerbook.com
