What did Pa get angry with (pg 288)?
What made Pa mind the weather more than usual? What was Laura's solution?
Had they prayed for Almanzo and Cap? What made it ok intheir eyes to pray for them?
Who did the town's people look to for wisdom?
What was Pa's argument?
What dide Almanzo notice about Pa (pg 308)?
Discuss: Proverbs 1:19, 15:27, Amos 5:9, Matthew 5:9, 4:4 in light of these chapters
Learn about the nutritional differences between whole wheat flour and non-enriched white flour. What vitamins does white flour lack? What vitamins did the Ingalls receive by eating whole wheat instead of white?
How was God's Provision better than Laura's desire for white bread? How is God's Will better than our own will for our lives? Name an instance where God's Will proved much better than your own will.
God provided for the Ingalls...consider the verses Philippians 4:11, 13, 19, Psalm 146:7, 37:25, Matthew 6:8-13
learn some songs from Laura's time, lyrics from some of Pa's songs here
What is Chinook, and what differences did it bring? read about the Legend of The Chinook Wind here, learn how the Chinook winds work here and here
Apply Proverbs 17:22 and 16:24 to the story
Pa called Ma 'Nebuchadnezzar' when she suggested eating greens. Read the story of Nebuchadnezzar from Daniel 4 or Daniel 5 (or here at History World). Who was he? Why did he eat grass?
Learn about the wind and how wind is caused by temperature differences and the rotation of the Earth
The last of the wheat was used the day the train arrived in town. Read more stories in your Bible of how God's Provision lasted only as long as was needed (The Israelites and manna, the widow woman and the oil, etc.)
