I introduced my kids to the stories and characters of the Bible when they were really young. At the time it was important for me to find a story Bible that was appropriate for their age. Now that my little ones aren’t so little, they are ready for their first “real” Bible.
When kids are young, it is the perfect time to begin the practice of reading the Bible because it is fundamental to their spiritual formation. It will help them establish a personal relationship with God, equip them to make good choices., fill their minds with good, and create a foundation of faith.
I am over at Faith Gateway talking about How the Bible is Fundamental Kids’ Spiritual Formation plus I am highlighting the KJV The Beginner's Bible Holy Bible and NIrV The Beginner's Bible Holy Bible, a great resource for your big kids.
