The Most Amazing Book Ever

Our family believes that the Bible is the Word of God. We are committed to grow in the knowledge of Jesus through His Word and so we have prioritized the “passing of God’s Word” to our children through homeschooling. The toughest challenge in teaching God’s Word is that the best way to teach it is to LIVE it. As you share the Christ-like principles through the parables and verses by WORD, you also need to show it by DEEDS.

To honor God and how He has blessed us with His Word, my first “official” post is about GOD’s WORD and homeschooling.

After 16 years of being parents, we’ve moved from reading verses to the baby in the womb, to Bible verses in lullabies and children’s songs, to toddler Bibles, to Bible story books with lots of illustrations (from realistic, to cartoon, to comic!) to Bible Devotionals and now, they’re all reading from the same version I use and the challenge is to read the whole BIBLE, verse by verse, chapter by chapter.

These are the  first few and favorite  Children’s Bibles of the children:

Let me end by sharing my two homeschooled kids’ memory verse last week, Psalm 119:105 (New International Version), “Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path.”  Indeed, the best treasure we can give our children is God’s Word, which we pray will take root in their hearts to guide them  and lighten their path.

Happy reading!
