Lately, the baby has taken to chasing me around the house with a book in hand, saying “kkkkkkkkkkkkkkk!” I believe that translates to “I want to read this book right this very minute thankyouverymuch!” So we do.
All four of our children love to read or to be read to, or both. It’s truly one of my favorite “Mommy Duties” and one I totally take advantage of. We have quite a nice collection of faith-building books and videos that teach biblical lessons, address moral issues, or teach about specific aspects of what we believe.
Turning family reading (or singing, or movie) time into a casual Bible lesson is a low-key way to develop everyday faith. Here are a few of our favorite tools.
The Legend Of The Three Trees ~ “And so we see, God’s ways are not always our ways, but His ways are always best.”
God’s Wisdom for Little Girls: Virtues and Fun from Proverbs 31 ~ “Once upon a time, very long ago, God penned a poem so every girl could grow. Would you like to be wise? Do you want to be kind? Then come on and hear what God has in mind.”
My First Missal~ Explains the Mass in easy to understand terms, and helps kids follow along.
The Jesus Garden: An Easter Legend~ “All in the garden understood that he wasn’t really leaving them. His love-marks would always remind them of his hidden presence. And his beauty would remain in the world forever because of what he had given them.”
The NIrV Kids Study Bible is what our two oldest take to Sunday School each week, and we have several different Bible story books and a couple children’s devotionals in our home library.
Wee Sing Bible Songs are a favorite in the van, so long as we’re not already rockin’ to daddy’s old Petra, Steven Curtis Chapman, or Amy Grant cassettes. Yes, cassettes. He still has them. 😉
