A few years ago, when I had knee surgery, I found this great tool to use with my Bible
to help give parents guidance on how to raise their children. I decided that since I was going to be out of commission for a month or so, I would be able to sit and work on this. At the time, our children were just becoming teenagers and I wasn't sure if they needed a bible like that. I was sure that someone did, just not sure who. I completed the first Bible and was very proud of myself. Last year, I found a friend who was struggling a little with her kids and I brought her the bible. I hadn't touched it in over a year.
Little did I know that I needed it myself. A few weeks ago, I was talking with a new friend about the Child Training Bible. I explained to her that it isn't a bible in itself but a guideline for your bible. I thought about it for a bit and realized that it can be used at any stage of growth in our children. It is very important to use with a teenager as well as a toddler. Because of this, I ordered another set of Child Training Bible Cards. I talked about it with my husband and told him that it would be very beneficial for our children to be able to use this in a Bible we had at home. He agreed it wouldn't hurt. Last week the cards arrived. I'm still working on putting it together.
What do you need to put it together you ask?
1. A Bible in the translation you desire (We used NLT)
2. flags to tag your scriptures according to the color on the card (I bought mine at the local Walmart and the Dollar Tree)
3. highlighters and colored pencils to highlight the words for each section (I bought mine at Walmart)
4. Prayer to help you get through this with knowledge and diligence
We prefer to use the NLT bible translation. It is pretty amazing so far going through the bible and finding the scriptures for each issue my teens will or have had. It teaches me a lot too. It provides us with a tool to help our teens grow up a little more Godly in an ungodly world. I believe it will get them back into the word and back to following the path that God has put before them.
An awesome thing is that they also sell a Virtue Training Bible. This has just been purchased. I'm excited to get it in the mail and to begin the work on that as well.
