Training Up Our Children

If our kids go to church is that enough? (show notes bonus: Check out this article from the Babylon Bee - remember, it's satirical! Babylon Bee Article (remember this is satire!)

Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.
— Proverbs 22:6

Verses to examine:

  • Deuteronomy 6:5-9
  • Proverbs 22:6
  • Judges 2:10

Making Melody in Our Hearts

Singing to the Lord is a great way to teach your children to praise Him. Learn to be discerning in what you teach your children. Words mean things, so it matters what we sing. A great place to start is with good ol hymns.

The New England Primer

New England Primer
By David Barton

This little book was the first textbook in America for children. Knowledge starts with the fear of God (Proverbs 1:7). This book allowed children to learn through the context of Truth. Can you imagine if this primer was still in our curriculum today?!

I highly recommend getting this book and teaching your children from it. Whether you are homeschooling or not, this is a book that will lay a foundation of Truth.
