So, I’m throwing my hat into the 31 Days party. Have you heard of this? Bloggers from all over the…uhm, blogsphere choose a topic and write about it for 31 days IN A ROW. Clearly, this is a test of courage, creativity and keeping-your-fingers-0n-the-keyboard. (Y’all, I think I’ve only posted 6 times this whole month! But they were good posts.)
I did 31 Days to Impress Your Kids a few years ago and I loved it because it so very clearly showed my heart about leading kids to Jesus and impressing His Word on their hearts. This year, I wanted to do something that was (ahem) easier but also on target for helping and encouraging you in bringing your kids to Jesus.
One question I get a lot is “how do you explain so-and-so Bible story?” or “what book would help me teach this Biblical truth to my kids?”. I don’t have any great wisdom with specific scenarios. What I do know is that I have to lean on God’s Word. When something is TOO HARD and I am confused and tired and unsure of how to lead my kids, I always go back to the Bible. Then, I try to figure out how to bring a bite-sized piece of that truth to my children.
My 31 Days topic is about the best Bible-based books for you and your kids. The kids’ Bibles, the storybooks and yes, even a few straight up fiction books that will help begin conversations about faith and a journey with God. This will be a perfect time for you to stock your bookshelves or even load up for Christmas gifts!
I’m really excited about sharing these books with you. Honestly, I couldn’t go to sleep last night and had to turn on a light to make a list of all the books I want to cover! I’ll be linking to all of them on this page but go ahead and subscribe to my blog to get the daily updates in your inbox so you don’t miss any of the 31-days-o-fun!
