Somehow in all the madness of our culture with super heroes, fairy tales and imaginations galore it is more and more a challenge to teach our children that God is real. Unless we are diligent and creative and pray A LOT we are not going to be able to direct our kids to learning about God and His Word with all the distractions of our media-frenzied world.
Reading the Bible is a daily part of our school day. With a 5 and 3 year old this can be quite interesting though. We have read Bible stories, memorized a few scriptures with hand motions and all. We have little devotional books that teach character qualities. We even reenacted David and Goliath, and as seen below we "put on" the fruits of the spirit.
Talking about God is part of our everyday, but I desire for my kids to really have The Word within them. These few things listed above only take me so far.
How do you teach your children The Word? Do you have any advice for a mother with young children that you wish you had done with your children or can you think of things you wish your parents had done with you?
Teaching A-B-C's and 1-2-3's are important, but getting the B-I-B-L-E in them is at the top of my list!
