The other day Miss N came to me and said, "Mommy, sometimes I have scary thoughts at night and I try to pray but it doesn't work. All I can think about is monsters."
I reminded her of the verse, "What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee." and we talked about replacing the bad thoughts.
"I think about God and Bri (her friend) and I still think about monsters. I think I have room for three thoughts."
"Ok, so what is another thought you could think about?"
"Horses! God, Bri, and horses!"
She has since quoted that verse several times. I think this lesson is starting to stick. :)
