Well, I’m always excited to see ways to connect our children to God’s Word! I don’t know how many of you remember, but I’ve talked in the past about an amazing tool called the Child Training Bible. I absolutely loved it when I found it online and immediately ordered it. It has been amazing. So you can imagine my excitement when I found out that Mindy Dunn had created a new version called Virtue Training Bible! I emailed her right away and asked to do a giveaway, so if this sounds interesting to you….keep reading!!
First let me explain that there are 2 different versions: The Child Training Bible and the Virtue Training Bible. I will review them both, but the Giveaway will be for the Virtue Training Bible.
The Child Training Bible
The Child Training Bible is a tool for families to use as they direct their children to the Word of God. It contains full-color cards that help you locate and highlight scriptures about topics in 20 key areas of instruction such as Laziness, Pride, Lying, Wrong Friendships, and more.
They have a Bible they recommend on their website. The important thing is that it’s the same size as the cards. It doesn’t come with the Bible. I ended up using a Bible I already had which was the exact size needed. You insert the card inside the front cover, or just tape it to the cover like I did.
Then you use matching highlighters to find and highlight all the scriptures for each topic (see picture above). You then use matching post-it flags to mark each scripture and line up the flags with the colored area on the card. See?
You need scriptures about Making Excuses? Just follow those blue flags on the side. You need scriptures about Unforgiveness? Just follow the blue flags on the bottom.
The cards will lead you to 200 scripture references!! Also included is a section about the Gospel and sample prayers!
The idea is that if a situation arises you and your children can sit and quickly look up that topic in the Bible.
So basically instead of saying you shouldn’t tattle on your little brother…because I said so, you can sit with your child and see what the Bible says. You’d find 8 key scriptures that will help you show your child the importance of not tattling! You could even choose one to memorize together!
I love this idea! Yes, it’s important to do what I say because I’m your mom, but how much MORE important is it to do what God says! It also offers a loving way of discipleship and training while creating a Biblical foundation for all that we do and say!
The Virtue Training Bible
The Virtue Training Bible works the SAME way! You set it up exactly as the Child Training Bible only this time instead of 20 topics about our actions, you will be looking at 500 scriptures that deal with 42 virtues such as Hope, Kindness, Obedience, Faithfulness, Diligence, and more!
There is also a section similar to the Gospel section in the Child Training Bible, but this one focuses on the Trinity! The cards also include a 3-part prayer for each virtue.
Here’s a video about how to set up your Bible:
Wow! What an amazing tool right? I think every family should have this easy to use tool at their fingertips! Keep it out on the table and watch your children get drawn into the Word on their own too!!
