Jesus Calling for Kids. We are really enjoying those and talking about the challenges the author gives in how to live a life that lives with an ear attuned to Christ.
Then we turn to the Bible. Last week we finished Exodus. There was a very strategic reason I decided to start there. One, it's a little more interesting than say Leviticus with all the rules and regulations. Even
Numbers can be a bit slow with all the lists of people and counting.
Two -- and here's the big one. Prince of Egypt is a favorite movie with my kids. I have to admit that I really enjoy it, too. But I needed to make sure my kids didn't assume that was the full and accurate version of the Exodus events.
Part of my job as a mom is to make sure my kids know the Scripture. They have to be equipped to discern truth from fiction or half-truths. It doesn't mean you can't learn from books and videos that don't agree 100% with your beliefs...you just have to think critically. And when it comes to Scripture that's a non-negotiable.
