Mustard Seed Planting - Faith

We are on vacation this week, but I'm taking a few minutes to write about faith, and a verse that has been presenting itself to me often over the past couple of months:

Now faith is assurance of things hoped for, proof of things not seen.
Hebrews 11:1

The older I get, the more situations I go through which teach me the importance of this verse - the importance of faith. How do you explain faith to young children? I'm not sure I know the answer to this, but I do believe that if you help them hide God's word in their hearts eventually it sticks. This verse (along with several others about faith) is in our scripture box. It is my hope and prayer that these verses can help my children in times of trial and stress as they get older.

My post today is linked to Rebecca at Mom's Mustard Seeds. She blogs each Wednesday about Mustard Seed Planting, and it really has gotten me thinking about what I do to promote hiding God's word in my children's hearts, as well as my own. What a blessing.
