The B-I-B-L-E

At the beginning of 2010 the kids wrote down some goals. All three of my older kids set a goal to read the entire Bible this year. Several months ago Sarah finished reading the WHOLE Bible through by herself. Then this past month Andrew also finished reading from Genesis to Revelation. Daniel is on track to finish by the end of the year...if not sooner. I am SO proud of them.
Now, before you get the idea that my kids are super spiritual, let me say that they are regular kids with a sin nature. However, what better time to make Bible reading a DAILY habbit then as a child. Yes, even children can read the Bible. No, they do not understand everything they read, but as they read it they learn more, understand more, and ask questions about what they have read. Children's minds are like sponges....they soak up what you "feed" it (as in what they hear, read, see, etc.). I would much rather my children be filling their minds with God's Word (which, by the way, will keep them from sin) than anything the world has to offer.

  2. Well, they wouldn't have a sin nature if you hadn't married Ron! :) (of course, I guess they wouldn't have ANY nature)

  5. "Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity, Till I come, give attendance to reading..." 1 Tim. 4:12,13a

    Definitely an example!
