One of our biggest concerns when we decided to send our kids to public school was making sure that we continued to provide them Biblical teaching. We believe that is our greatest responsibility as parents to lead them towards a relationship with Jesus. It is an overwhelming thought at times. It is not for us to allow others to do. It is our job!! So we sat down and determined how we were going to be very intentional in our teaching them. We came up with a plan of our we were going to do it to include 4 parts.
1. Family Worship Time!! We do this once a week. It doesn't last too long (short attention spans) but it is a time where we as a family sing, study and pray together. We are going through a resource put together by the Church at Brook Hills. It has been an excellent way for us to lead them and it is divided by age which is great. Matt plays the guitar and we sing praise songs. We then study the Bible together. One of my favorite parts is at the end when we all take turns praying. I love hearing the kids pray and ask God to help them with what we just talked about. We all look forward to this each week. We have found it works well to just do it on a night that works with the schedule for that week.
Jesus Storybook Bible. I know I have talked about it a million times on the blog but we just love it. We are going through a story each night and it is such an encouragement.
I Can Teach My Child. She has made scripture cards for each letter of the alphabet. We have started going through the alphabet learning each verse. They are some great verses that I pray will be a blessing to the kids in the future.
