Although we aren't doing formal homeschool during the summer, I wanted to continue to make bible study with my children a priority. I usually make time after breakfast, when we are all at the table together. I especially love including our preschooler, he's a little sponge!
(Yep, that's me...with no makeup)
For the summer we have started reading the book of Proverbs. This particular morning, we were reading in Proverbs 2.
I read each verse, and then discussed with them what it means (hopefully in a way they can relate to).
1 My child, listen to what I say,
It's amazing how reading through the scriptures with the kids touches my heart. I have come back to these verses several times over the last couple days, to remind myself that I need to be using all my senses to pursue God and His wisdom.
Do we miss some mornings? Yes.
Do we make it through a whole chapter? Sometimes, but mostly I judgeeir interest level, I want it to be fun and engaging...so if I start getting the "are we done yets" I usually finish up with a review of what we read.
Most of the time my 5 year old wants to read part of the chapter by herself - yay! It's great reading practice as well.
Do you study the bible with your children? What time of day/approach works best for your family?
