Kiddos will have fun decorating Samuel’s bed then playing with the Samuel figure to retell the story of how God called Samuel and how Samuel listened. God may not speak to us in an audible voice but He does speak through His words in the Bible and through others like parents and teachers. Aren’t you glad he gave us the Bible and Christian community?
