My Shield

By Julia Schumacher-Martin

What You’ll Need:

8 1/2” x 11” white printer paper, one sheet per child

Colored pens or markers, one set for each child, though children could share 


On a blank sheet of printer paper, draw a big circle, like an old-fashioned shield. Then, using different colored pens or markers and starting right inside the circle you drew, write the words of Psalm 28:7 (ESV): “The LORD is my strength and my shield.” Repeat writing the verse over and over, switching colors with each word (you’ll have to keep turning the page!). Spiral your writing gradually inwards, so you’ll have circles and circles reminding you that God is your strength!
