Whenever we have a situation with the kids, like tattling, bullying, or studying the bible, that we really want them to understand why it is so important, we always turn to the bible. My husband and I will sit with the kids, their bibles, our bibles, and a concordance and find scriptures that explain that we get our rules from God and why they are important. Sometimes this is difficult. We sometimes have a hard time finding scriptures that relate and it can take quite a while, making the kids lose interest. I came across the Child Training Bible, and knew it was the solution. I had the opportunity to review it and share with you. You are going to love this!
The Child Training Bible ($9.00) comes with instructions, a cover page, and pages with discussion starters and prayers. With your own Bible (recommended: English Standard Version, but I used a NIrV because that's what my kids understand best), highlighters in 7 colors, and sticky tabs in those same 7 colors, you create your own Child Training Bible.
The Child Training Bible website includes endorsements, tutorials, instructions, recommended supplies, and so much more. The creators are also easy to reach, passionate, and friendly.
I was expecting the Bible to be hard to assemble, but I was definitely wrong. In fact, I assembled it in one evening after the kids went to bed while listening to a football game. It took me about 4 hours, but I would take breaks and watch the game with my husband.
Since assembling the Child Training Bible, we have referenced it on almost a daily basis. We have also used it with our family bible study. It is interesting to see the themes you are reading about while going through the passages. When school starts back next week, I intend to use it with our morning Bible study as well.
I have one tip: Follow the advice of the creator and use the recommended tabs. I used the tabs I always buy, which are like sticky notes. The problem with these is that they do cover some of the words. I have the recommended ones on the way and will be replacing them when they arrive. So, save yourself time and money and buy the recommended ones to begin with.
