I’m guilty. At times, I’ve let learning the Bible with my kids slide in our home. But, there are ways to make the Bible fun for kids and to get them excited about God and His Word!
The Word of God should be of utmost importance in our families.
But how often do we take time to intentionally and purposefully be students of the Word? Do we dive into the Bible with our kids? Or make learning about God a real thing?
We are blessed with so many great resources to help our children engage with the Word in a fun and practical way.
Fostering a love for God in our children
God is not just Someone we learn about on Sundays; He wants a relationship with us AND our children every day, all day.
As parents, WE are responsible for cultivating and fostering in our children a love for God.
But, at times, we don’t know what to do to help our children learn about God.
Some of us have had experiences where learning about God is dry and boring. Or we’ve grown up in a religious home where our life is about works and our salvation is constantly on the line. Maybe you’ve just never grown up in a loving Christian home, and have no idea where to start helping your children learn about God.
Whatever your reason is or experience, you have a choice you can make today for the sake of your family. You get to bring light (the Word of God) into your home.
So where do you start?
Below are some ways to make the Bible fun for kids with a variety of engaging tools and resources.
