how to teach your children the
Bible. In these posts, I hope
to encourage you to be teaching God's Holy
Word, to your precious little ones,
and include some tips and ideas that
we have used through the years
with our 5 children.

Part 3 installment-
Repetition and Submersion
The best way of learning anything,
as some of you may know,
is with repetition and submersion.
We use these techniques for
learning a language, lyrics to a song...
These same learning techniques work
wonderfully for getting you and
your children familiar with the Bible.
In addition to you the parent,
reading and discussing
the Bible with your kids,
Below are a few resources that
our family has found helpful in
getting the Word "into us".
Some tools we use all the time are
Cd's and tapes.

great Cd's out there, that put
scripture to music. It is
such a great way to memorize the Word.
Our long time favorites, that have been around a
Great for younger kids-
my older kids (15 and 16) still know
all the verses from these songs.
We have the Video\ DVD versions too,
that we watch over and over again.
Another resource that is the best-
The whole Bible on CD.
You can listen to it in the car,
have it on during the day around the house.
We play it in the kids rooms,
as they go to sleep.
If you have an iphone, or ipad
there are some great Bible apps that have
different audible versions.
We use this resource the most.
Another set of CD's that we just love,
and always give as gifts is called-
They are a wonderful ministry.
Some Cd's are scripture in song,

We just treasure the good solid
foundation we and our children are getting from

Another wonderful resource is
They have a great ministry of scripture in song
to children and families.
Each Cd is a total enjoyment to listen too.

There is nothing better than learning God's word

They have a wonderful vision
of getting the Word into our families.

Some last tips for getting the Word
into you and the kids;
Have scripture displayed around your home.
Have it written on 3x5 cards on the fridge,
have it printed up and framed in your living room.
I posted about that here.
Have the kids copy it down as part of their
daily copy work lessons.
Have God's Word displayed where
everyone can see it and read it.
Remember, have fun.
I hope these tips and resources encourage you.
