Last week, one of my sons was curious about tornadoes. I started gathering links and resources to study tornadoes this week per my son’s request. Only the Lord knew, what devastation would entail this week.
I decided to share with you a whole list of tornado resources that might interest children.
I have to admit, my children are a bit fearful, but this is a time we must give our fears to the Lord. I decided to continue with our study this week. My children have many questions, so I am using this time to disuss spiritual issues with them, too. We do serve a mighty God!

Thank you for all these helpful resources! We are from Alaska but are in the process of moving to Texas, so tornadoes will be a new thing for me. Thank you for helping us to be prepared for what may lie ahead! And, thank the good Lord that He is always in control!?
You are very welcome, Robin. Welcome to the Lone Star State!
