Love at first sight—it does exist. How do I know? Because- from the first time I saw the Child Training Bible I was in love! What is the Child Training Bible? An awesome concept created by Mindy Dunn that makes teaching your children the word of God a little simpler. So simple, in fact, that children can use it themselves.
My husband and I have made up our minds to raise our children in a Godly environment. We want them to grow up to be women of God. We want them to be educated in His word, and that has to start with us. We must do our part and I’m so excited that I can use the Child Training Bible in the process.
I am determined to have my girls not only know the Bible, but to also understand it. For a little over a year now, we have been working on memorizing scripture. We take it at our own pace and don’t rush things. I want these scriptures to soak deep into their hearts, and am thrilled to say that they are also soaking into mine. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, this isn’t just beneficial to my girls, it’s beneficial to me—which is one reason why I love the Child Training Bible so much.
Something I’ve noticed with kids (especially mine) is the phrase (usually used when they aren’t getting their way), “The Bible says share!” They also try other similar phrases, even though they aren’t educated enough in the word to back it up (don’t get me wrong, this is not me saying that it’s not there). One of the first two scriptures we’ve memorized are
“Children, obey your parents in all things, for this is well pleasing to the Lord.”-Colossians 3:20
“Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long up the land which the Lord your God is giving you.”- Exodus 20:12.
When they try to use those phrases, I’m able to say, “Well, the Bible also says—” and I then quote the scripture. They can’t argue because they’ve learned it. With the Child Training Bible and it’s colorful tabs, we can quickly find these verses that are so important in training our children in the word of God—that’s another reason I love the Child Training Bible.
When showing the completed Bible to Naomi and Adah (5 and 3), I picked “Fighting” as a sample topic to explain to them how the Bible works. Naomi immediately said, “Yeah, cause sometimes me and Sissy fight a lot.” I flipped through and read a few of the verses, helping them understand the meaning and teaching them why fighting isn’t good. Later on that night, I overheard Naomi telling Adah, “The Bible says no fighting!” She had even read scriptures that day to prove it. 🙂
To make the Child Training Bible, you only need the following: Child Training charts, Bible (must be big enough to hold the charts), highlighters and tabs. The charts are available at Child Training Bible’s Website. You can also purchase the other products needed from the website, via links. Putting it together took me around an hour- but I was a little bit of a perfectionist trying to get my tabs to line up just right. 😉
When I look at our Child Training Bible, I see the colorful tabs and highlighted scriptures and am reminded of the rainbow and God’s promises to us in His word. So far, we have enjoyed our use of the Bible and plan to use it (and share it) much more.
