God’s Word in My Heart is a new ebook written by Jennifer Thorson of The Purposeful Mom. The ebook is a simple guide for parents who want to embed God’s Word in their children’s hearts. I agree with the author that, “It’s never too early to start teaching your children Bible verses!”
The book is peppered with scriptures to remind us that God will help us teach our kids His word. The book is versatile and can be used with kids of any age. The first half of the book lists innovative tips and tools to teach scripture to children of all ages (ranging from babies to high-school kids).
The second half of the book has a list of A-Z memory verses and more. What I like is that these verses can be adapted depending on the age of your child. Toddlers can learn a small portion of the verse (the essence of it), while older kids can learn the entire verse. You can also choose the version of the Bible you want to use for the memory verses.
My husband and I started teaching our kids to memorize scripture a couple of years back. The tips in this book will definitely make the process more interesting. For now, we teach our boys the meaning of the verse they are memorizing, and use hand motions to help them remember it. I’m hoping we’ll be able to use more of the suggestions in the book as they grow older and learn how to read and write.
Here’s an exhaustive list of all that the e-book offers:
- Ideas for teaching Scripture to your children, from the baby on up
- List of Songs and other Go-Alongs for learning Scripture
- List of specific songs that go with the memory verses
- Printable Scripture memory verses for use at home, school or church
- ABC Memory Verses
- Verses on Sin and Salvation
- KJV (King James Version)
- NASB (New American Standard)
- Variety (ESV, NIV 1984, NASB, NKJV)
For just one day (February 14), the ebook is priced at $1.99 only. The regular price is $3.99. Click here for more information about the book.
I pray along with the author that you and your children will take joy in hiding God’s Word in your hearts.
