Children Learning Bible

Are you looking for a way to teach the Bible to your children?

Are you personally looking for a way to start incorporating the Bible as your go-to answers for everything?

Do you want to help point a New-Believer to a helpful way to learn the Bible?

Grab a couple of friends and make this Children Learning Bible!

My friend got me this Child Training Bible as a gift and I seriously love it.

The Child Training Bible is tool that allows parents and children (and anyone that loves the Word of God) to go directly to the pages of Scripture for instruction in 20 key areas with a complete section dedicated to the gospel.

I dont know about you, but I tend to rely on my own experience to give advice. Or other’s experience. But “everything in the Bible is God’s Word. All of it is useful for teaching and helping people and for correcting them and showing them how to live.”

What better way to answer the “Why Mom’s?” than to grab God’s Word and teach them?

Here’s an example of how to use it:

The other day, my son stole a toy from his sister.
Before punishing this behavior, I sent him to his room, grabbed this Child Training Bible from the coffee table drawer (a central location in my home), and met him in his room.

Not only does this give me a second to re-establish my thoughts and curb the anger boiling inside of me after correcting my son for the umpteenth time that day, but it also gives him a chance to connect with me.

We sit. I put my arm around him (physical  touch), and I find the Tab on Stealingand read the Verses that go along with it:

Son, stealing is wrong. We do not steal because God says….

You shall not steal” in Exodus 20:15 as one of the 10 commandments.
Bread gained by deceit is sweet to a man, but afterward his mouth will be full of gravel.” in Proverbs 20:17 – can you picture explaining this to your kids? Isn’t that yucky??
“Let the thief no longer steal, but rather let him labor, doing honest work with his own hands, so that he may have something to share with anyone in need.” in Ephesians 4:28

After reading a few of the verses listed, there is a series of questions provided with a prayer:

“What is it called when you take something from something from someone else? Do you truly need what you have taken?”
“What is your greatest need? (Ephesians 2:1-3) How has God provided for you? (Ephesians 2:4-5)

“Lord, help my child not to take pride in his possessions (1 john 2:16) but to lay up treasures in heaven where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal (Matthew 6:19-21). Thank you, Jesus, for graciously giving so much through your love. (Ephesians 2:4-5)

I love it!

It provides words when I don’t necessarily have them for the situation. And I swear, my son calms as I am reading to him. And in those not so perfect moments when I am not the nurturing mother I want to be, this helps.

I want to teach the Bible to my children, and I need to learn it myself. This tool does both. It trains me to go to the Bible when giving an answer, and it trains my son to respect not only my authority, but God’s.

If you want this CTB:

  1. You’ll need to order the Chart Set from the creator of this CTB Mindy Dunn (Thank you Mindy!!!!!!)
  2. Order a Bible
    (make sure the Bible is at least 5 3/4 x 8 3/4 so the cards aren’t bigger than the Bible. It works, but for all you anal girls like me, you don’t want to have to trim it.)
  3. Order your tabs and highlighters

And once you get your supplies, FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS, and tab and highlight all the verses!

It might seem daunting, but it really is fun and relaxing when you take the time to do it. Or grab a friend, order a few, and do it all together! This is also a great gift (thank you friend!)

I’m so grateful for resources  and Moms like these!

Rather train yourself for godliness;  for while bodily training is of some value, godliness is of value in every way, as it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come. The saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance. For to this end we toil and strive, because we have our hope set on the living God, who is the Savior of all people, especially of those who believe. (1 Timothy 4:6–10 ESV)

  1. I think it’s critical that when we use resources like this we remind our kids of the Gospel every time. That they actually aren’t able to follow these commands, and they break them, which is why Jesus died and God punished him for our sin. But, he came back to life, God forgives us in Christ, and gives us the Holy Spirit to change us to be more like Jesus. Only in Christ are we “no longer slaves to sin!”

    If we don’t do this, we risk falling into moralism. It’s too easy to wield the Bible as a tool for behavior modification (manipulation.) If we teach our kids to (try to) follow the law without constantly reminding them that the grace of God is the only thing that will allow them to obey God, we risk ending up with kids who obey on the outside but rebel on the inside (and often reject the faith when they leave our authority).

    As the Bible says, “The law was a tutor to bring us to Christ.”
    Our goal as parents can’t be simply “Don’t steal,” it has to be “Look at the God who generously gave EVERYTHING to rescue us! Look how selfish our hearts are without him, and how easy it is to disobey God’s Word and take.” If they’re unsaved, the next step is sharing the Gospel. If they’re saved, the next step is talking about how the Spirit in us gives us the fruit of the Spirit so we can choose to act like new creations in Christ—instead of stealing, we give the way Christ gave for us.

    There’s a great book about this called “Show Them Jesus” by Jack Klumpenhower.

    1. Amen Tamara. Thanks for a new resource as well!! I’ll check that out. It all absolutely has to be pointed to Christ and what He has done for us and equipped us with.

      These are great moments to show kids that they need Jesus to begin with
