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! Pin the image above so you can get back to this post quickly!
