The child will be able to describe ways in which they were created uniquely.

Psalms 139:14 (NIV)
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
God took a handful of soil from the ground and used it to make a man. God breathed life into him, and the man began to breathe. Then, God created a beautiful garden called Eden, and he put the man in the garden to live.
The garden was filled with all kinds of trees, but there were two special trees in the very middle of the garden: One tree gave life, and the other tree gave the power to know the difference between good and evil.
God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I need to make a partner for him.” So, God took more soil and made animals and birds. God brought the animals to the man, and the man named them all. But none of them were the right kind of partner for him.
So, God made the man fall into a deep sleep and took one of the man’s ribs. Then, God created a woman out of the rib and brought her to the man.
“She is like me! She is part of my body. She came from me, a man. So, I will call her ‘woman,’” the man said.
In the beginning, God created the very first man and woman. They were called Adam and Eve (Genesis 3:20). God created each and every one of us, too. It is God’s own breath that gives us life, and God created us in his image, making us extremely valuable (Genesis 1:27).
This means that we have the ability to think, reason, and be creative.
Thank you for making me. I am grateful that you know me and want me to know you. Amen.
Made in God’s Image
Like Adam and Eve in the garden, we are all made in God’s image.
