Let me introduce you to the Child Training Bible . Designed by Mindy, a homeschooling Mom of 5:
"The Child Training Bible is tool that allows parents and children (and anyone that loves the Word of God) to go directly to the pages of Scripture for instruction in 20 key areas with a complete section dedicated to the gospel."
The CTB 'kit' comes with instructions, 1 Key and 3 laminated cards.
|Child Training Bible - 1 Key and 3 laminated cards|
You will also need:
Highlighters (I choose to use colored pencils)
Matching colors of Post-It Flags
|Additional supplies needed to assemble your Child Training Bible|
Setting up your Bible will take some time. I had to choose opportunities when I knew I wasn't going to be interrupted every 30 seconds or my toddler wasn't around...so, it took several sessions to complete.
To begin, tape the Key on the first page of your Bible. (This serves as your guide where you look up the behavior, color and area you need to go to when you are 'training' with your child.)

Then follow each topic with that color highlighter (or colored pencil) and the appropriate colored flag by finding the corresponding listed scripture.
Continue by highlighting and tabbing the entire top side of the card first, working your way down the side and bottom sections.
Once that is finished, you are ready!
As necessary, follow the enclosed list of steps to accomplish a calm, constructive 'Bible moment' which also includes heart probing questions, discussion and prayer.
Shortly after I finished putting my CTB together, I had the opportunity to use it!
|Voila! Finished product!|
As a very busy mom who desires to raise her children with the Bible as their guide, I recommend the CTB as a wonderful tool to aid in that pursuit.
Once set up, the CTB is VERY EASY and affective to use. It's affordable, portable and you can WIN A KIT FOR YOURSELF!
