The Child Training Bible Review & Giveaway

When our young boys disobey, we intentionally make an effort to take the time and energy to address their behavior as a ‘heart condition’ and not just overlook it;  letting disobedience take root in their hearts. We know our children are not perfect (as neither are we are parents), but we know that with the Lord’s help we can steer and guide our children toward developing Godly character. In our home, Godly character is the most important thing we work towards as a family. 

When I discovered the Child Training Bible, I was so excited! It is the perfect tool for parents and children to refer to for dealing with issues of the heart. I loved that instead of referring to a Christian book for our behavior, it was directing us straight to the Bible itself! The Child Training Bible is actually a kit to turn your favorite version of the Bible into a reference tool for guiding your children’s (and your own) character towards that of God’s own character.

The CTB was designed with Colossians 3:9-10 in mind.  “You have put off the old self with its practices and have put on the new self.”  The Scriptures selected for the CTB teach why we are to “put off” certain behavior and what godly behavior we are to “put on” instead.
The front key of the CTB is a visual index of the areas that Scripture teaches us to “put off.”  These areas correspond to color-coded tabs and highlighted text.  CTB Scriptures address both negative and positive responses with the emphasis on Jesus Himself, His perfect life as an example and gift to us.
To make a Child Training Bible you will use the CTB charts that include over 200 Scripture references, heart and gospel questions, and sample prayers.
Make a CTB for your family to have Scripture accessible and central in your home.
How Do You Use The Child Training Bible? 
Families with Young Children: The Child Training Bible is a perfect tool to refer to and read with your child who is struggling with a certain misbehavior. The charts provide parents with great ‘heart questions’, questions/Bible references to how Jesus responded in similar situations, and a prayer to pray with your child.
Families with Older Children/Teenagers: The Child Training Bible can be used in the same way, and or the hope is that your teenager will become familiar enough with it that when they are struggling with a certain behavior, they would feel comfortable enough to refer to it on their own for guidance. How rewarding would that be as a parent; to ‘catch’ your child flipping through your families Child Training Bible for guidance!?!
