3 Ways to Share God’s Story on a Snow Day


A snow day is a great way to share God’s story! In addition to simply playing in the snow, you can teach your child about creation, salvation, and sanctification.

So go ask your child if they want to build a snowman and then share God’s story!

Creation – You are fearfully and wonderfully made.

As you build your snowman, to talk to your child about creation. Let them know that in the same way you are creating the snowman, God created them. Talk about creation and then read or quote Genesis 1:27.

God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.

In the same way that you are making this snowman, God made you and your child!

Regardless of how grand your snowman ends up looking, talk to your child about how wonderful it is! As you do, remind them that you, too, are fearfully and wonderfully made! Quote or read Psalm 139:14.

I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Wonderful are Your work, and m soul knows it very well.

Let your child know that they are fearfully and wonderfully made!

Why? Because God made them. And God does not make mistakes.

Salvation – Some people are worth melting For.

Even though we are fearfully and wonderfully made by God and He does not make mistakes, we still sin. Shortly after creating the first man and woman, man disobeyed God and sin entered into our world.

Therefore, just as through one man sin entered into the world, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men, because all sinned. (Romans 5:12)

Like Olaf, the snowman from Disney’s Frozen said, “Some people are worth melting for.” Olaf knows that true love is a sacrificial love.

Tell your child that they are worth melting for!


Let them know that Jesus died – melted – for them!

But God demonstrates His own love towards us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:8)

Jesus loves us the way Olaf talks about love. Instead of melting for us, Jesus died for us. Jesus died for you. Jesus died for your child.

For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. (John 3:16)

Sanctification – Make You White as Snow.

Finally, remind your child that when we believe in the Lord Jesus, we are saved! (Acts 16:31).

We are also made clean!

Come now, and let us reason together,” says the Lord, “though your sins are as scarlet, they will be as white as snow! (Isaiah 1:18)


Purify me.. and I shall be clean. Wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow. Psalm 51:7

Sin is dirty, but when we trust God, He takes our sin and makes us as white as snow!

Yeah, we will still sin, but God even takes care of that. Quote or read I John 1:9.

If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse of from all unrighteousness.

We don’t just trust God to save us, we confess our sins to God believing that He will cleanse us.


So yeah, a snow day is a great way to share God’s story!

  1. Build a snowman and talk about how we are wonderfully made.
  2. Remind your child that they are worth melting for, and that Jesus melted – died – for them.
  3. Let them know that when we believe and trust in Jesus, He makes our dirty sin as white as the snow you are playing in.

Go enjoy a snow day and use it to share God’s story!

Be Your Kid’s Spiritual Hero

Every story has a hero.

The Matrix has Neo. Lord of the Rings has Frodo. Star Wars has Luke Skywalker. Frozen has, well, no spoilers… yet. Your kids have you.


Every hero has a goal.

As parents, our goal is to see our kids grow in wisdom, in stature, and in favor with God and man (Luke 2:52).

We want to teach our kids about God and His Word.

We want to help our kids understand God’s Story and we want to help our kids understand their place in God’s Story.

Simply put, we want to disciple our kids.

Every hero has a struggle.

The goal is easy enough – disciple our kids. So what’s the problem?

Sometimes this is easier said than done.

Sometimes our kids would rather watch TV or a movie.

Sometimes our kids are more interested in entertainment than they are education.

Sometimes they simply check out at the mention of a well-known Bible story.

Sometimes they just want to watch Frozen for the 100th time.

Sometimes they want to build a snowman!

Every hero has a mentor.


Neo has Morpheus. Frodo has Gandalf. Luke Skywalker has Obi-Wan. You have me.

Let me help you share God’s Story with your kids! Let me be your Morpheus. Let me be your Gandalf. Let me be your Obi-Wan.

Every hero takes action!

Yes, you can share God's story with Finding Nemo! Check out Reel Parables to see how!

Like Jesus often did, I will show you how to share God’s Word with a story.

Like Paul, we can use our culture to share God’s Story. (Acts 17:16-34)

Sharing God’s Story with Disney’s Frozen is a movie-based Bible study that uses a movie your kids already love to teach them about the most important story, God’s Story.

Why? Because Frozen tells a very biblical story.

Arendelle is under a curse because of one person’s actions.

Only an act of true love can lift the curse.

In Frozen, this act of true love ends up being sacrificial love.

The story ends with a sacrificial death and a resurrection!

Yes, Disney’s Frozen can teach us God’s Story!
