Kids in the Word Wednesday – Reading the Bible

The Pelsers


Now that we’ve finished Truth in the Tinsel but not yet jumped back into our normal routine and schoolwork, Jonathan and I have been reading this:

We’ve gone back to The Beginner’s Bible because Jonathan can easily read this Bible and he loves the pictures.  We’ve read this Bible from cover to cover more times than I can count in the past three years.  We’ve been jumping around, reading whatever stories Jonathan is interested in that night before bed.  I’ll read a page and then Jonathan will read a page.  We talk about connections with other stories and things that we’ve learned about in What’s in the Bible? DVDs.  Then, Jonathan usually takes it to bed and flips through it as he’s settling in to go to sleep.

  1. What a great way to cultivate a love of reading while incorporating the Word! This year, we decided to try the Bible-in-a-year outline. We meet every night in the den, and read several chapters from our Bibles. We’re going in book order, so right now, we’re in Genesis. Even though we’re jsut a few days into the year, the kids are excited to pick up where we’ve left off the night before. It’s even brought up some interesting discussions already. ☺ Happy Thursday, Amanda!

  2. Amanda, I keep meaning to ask you about this!  We decided to sit and read through the Bible in a year, together as a family…sparked by Mrs. Larri, above….the kids and I do have memorization scripture every week….I love that you are encouraging others to teach this to their children!!!!  You are a blessing to so many!

  3. Our favorite is the Jesus Storybook Bible. My kids have learned so much about God’s plan to rescue his children from this book. I love the encouragement you give to get our children in the word. Thanks!
