HOW WE USE THE BIBLE IN THE EARLY YEARS

"Train up a child in the way they should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it"

-Proverbs 22:6

It's a lot of work to parent intentionally, to train my children to grow in the "nurture and admonition of the Lord". There are many ways I use the Bible to point my kids to the Lord, but this way is one of the simplest. I want the Bible to be a part of our daily lives so to that end I try to use it on a regular basis for training my children.

I've added sticky notes to my brand new She Reads Truth Bible. We keep it out in our family room so it's always easily accessible. I've color coded highlighted passages and sticky note flags by topic: kindness, respect, honesty--things that my younger kids need to work on, learn about, etc.

I've got a list of the topics and their color in the front of the Bible (not pictured).  Whenever I see a situation arise (and there are many!), I can simply find the corresponding topic and flip quickly and easily to a verse.

I love the new She Reads Truth Bible.  The translation is easy to understand, has gorgeous color maps and illustrations (top image). The cover is also very thick and durable, great for even little hands to utilize.

Note: I love many of the She Reads Truth products. The new Bible does not come with sticky note flags or highlighted text (that was my own DIY), however it does include gorgeous timelines, maps and other charts.   I was given this Bible to review for B&H Publishing by FrontGate Media.  While I was given the Bible for free,  all thoughts and opinions are my own.
