As A Parent...

I believe, as a Christian parent, the single most important job to do is to introduce your child to God. I want my children to get to know Him, trust Him and obey Him. Since they were all little, we have read to them from their children's Bible the accounts of the Old Testament and the life and ministry of Jesus. It is always precious to see how receptive they are and eager to learn more.. Now that Katie and Maggie can read I got them their own child's daily devotional to do at bedtime. It started July 1 and they actually were able to use their Bible with small print( and no pictures) and learn how to use it by book, chapter and verse. It is a whole new world of wonder as they are able to learn and even memorize passages, as well as help their mom keep up with her daily reading! May we all be humble and innocent like children and eager to recieve His Word.
