Looking for resources to help your family learn and grow together while building connection?

This week I have been working on some creative resources to share with you and your family. I’m developing a series of printables for you to use in your every day life in the biblical training of your children as you go, at the dinner table, or just hanging around the house.

Being out of a Sunday School setting for over four months has been weighing heavy on my heart. My kids learn so much from their teachers and I have been longing for those “after church” conversations with them. Knowing we may be in for more disruptions in our Sunday routines this Fall/Winter, I had to come up with a solution.

Connecting with them over the dinner table using this method of discipleship has truly been a blessing during this time. It helps them take ownership of their faith, gives them a foundation, and helps me to know more of where they are spiritually so I can pray with them and for them.

I have taught numerous children through the word of God using the Bible storying method. Their parents have remarked how surprised they are with how much their 5 year old knew about the Bible.

  1. I break down the Bible into eras with each era having a few stories within it.
  2. I present a picture, we read a story.
  3. I ask a question.
  4. I let them talk it out to hear their heart.
  5. I respond, then they share what they remember from the story.

My brand new Creation Era of scripture cards are ready and I’m so excited about them. I taught all 8 to my girls today and they were so excited! Learn more about my faith here.

You’ll receive a 3 digital files that include all 8 cards, plus extra cards with an answer key, activity ideas. As a bonus you’ll get a Spotify playlist for the creation era as well as a Pinterest board with craft and activity ideas to go along with each story. The cards can be displayed with clothes pins on a string, hole punched and bound with binder rings, or just kept in a zip lock bag in your purse for use on the go. You can print them on cardstock or regular paper and laminate.

Each card has 2 prompts on it and one action step.

I suggest you read the story prior to teaching it to familiarize yourself with the story. Then you can choose to pick an age appropriate Bible to read out of or paraphrase if you are at dinner and just wanting to have a faith filled conversation.
I provide a question on each card for you to consider, but I suggest you jot down a few more as you are preparing to share. Make sure to ask your kids if they have questions.
We know true learning has taken place when the student can reteach what he or she has learned. Have your child paraphrase the story back to you. See if they can string the stories together in order. Mix the cards up and see if they can sequence them correctly. All of these activities help the stories stick. Encourage them to share with a friend something they’ve learned.

  1. I loved this one when they were babies-Kindergarten.

2. “A Child’s First Bible” has been amazing for our new reader. She began reading this one aloud to us and to her self in Kindergarten. The language is easy to understand and the pictures are wonderful. When a child reads their own Bible it helps them take hold of faith and develop spiritual disciplines early in life.

3. “The Children’s Story Bible” by Catherine F. Vos is a wonderful family Bible for all children. It’s been a wonderful read-aloud option for our family. I started using it when my oldest was four.

I pray these resources will meet you where you are and encourage you in your faith and in the development of your children’s faith.

“And you must commit yourselves wholeheartedly to these commands that I am giving you today. Repeat them again and again to your children. Talk about them when you are at home and when you are on the road, when you are going to bed and when you are getting up.” Deuteronomy 6:6-7
