Better than Minecraft!
by Hannah Keeley
If you are anything like me, you have basically realized that video games aren’t going away anytime soon. My boys, especially, are big gamers (if you consider gaming only on weekends, as “big gamer” material).
And they LOVE Minecraft!
That’s why I was so excited when a friend passed along the video game, Birthdays the Beginning. It’s like Minecraft but…
…from an ecosystem point of view. You can literally create different planets, ecosystems, terrains, animals, and more.
One thing I love about this is that it reveals, even for small children, the incredible mysteries and complexities of living organisms and ecosystems. Science still has yet to pinpoint that one mystery–the origin of life. And this is a great way to introduce that to your children. That our God started it ALL. It didn’t just “happen.” It happened as a result of our awesome Heavenly Father.
This is a secular game, of course. But I love using secular materials to introduce spiritual principles to my children.
So, while they’re playing a game, they are learning the entire time. That’s a win/win for me and my kids!

Hannah Keeley was once in overwhelmed mom living in a cluttered house, deep in debt, out of shape, and barely hanging on. But one day, after finding herself sobbing uncontrollably into a pile of clean laundry, she realized God has bigger and better plans for her (just like He does for each one of His children). Beginning that day, she began making changes in her life that took her from overwhelmed to overjoyed. Today, she’s helping moms do the same. Hannah, her husband, Blair, and their seven children live in Richmond, Virginia, and are having the time of their lives!
