ArynFaith, Children's Bookshelf, Family11 Comments

There’s nothing more important (or intimidating, it seems like) than trying to figure out how to explain salvation to a child. Where do you start? What do you say? And if you’ve heard how critical the 4-14 window is, the pressure is on! One thing about salvation for kids (or adults), if they don’t understand what sin is (and its forever consequences), why would they want salvation? And there’s a difference between head knowledge and heart knowledge for sure! We can know something with our heads, and not accept it into our hearts. I have a couple of books to … Read More

How to Teach The Real Easter Story For Kids: 10 Best Easter Story Books

ArynChildren's Bookshelf, Christian Nonfiction, Faith, Family6 Comments

children reading, Best Easter Story books

The Real Easter Story is so special. I don’t think we truly grasp just how privileged we are, to have such free access to forgiveness and love. And if we as adults struggle with wrapping our minds around it, then we need to think about our kids. The meaning of Easter for kids can be overwhelming. But, between the ages of 4-14, they are far more likely to understand and accept the truth, and run with it their whole lives, than if we wait until “they’re old enough to understand” or some such sentiment. That is exactly why I love … Read More

Christian Children's Books full of life lessons for the whole family

It is always amazing to me, how God works to multiply His message. Isaiah 55:11 says: “so My word that comes from My mouth will not return to Me empty, but it will accomplish what I please and will prosper in what I send it to do.” I always get excited when I see or experience that playing out. He can have someone write children’s books with life lessons that apply to the kids and adults equally, and have both the mom and her little ones get the lesson in a slightly different way, from the same 8 page board book, or 20 minute cartoon.Table of Contents How Do Books Teach Life Lessons?

Baby's First Bible Stories

Bible stories for baby may seem a little silly, but these youngest kiddos are sponges! And a Baby first Bible is a precious gift. When my first baby was born, I just read whatever book I was reading out loud. Got a lot of reading done while he was nursing and playing. But with my second, that wasn’t going to work. So I started being more intentional. And reading today’s tour book, I must say it was a great experience. I have several toddler storybook Bibles, but hadn’t really ventured into “Baby First Bible Stories” kind of books. Until Now… … Read More
