We want parents to be equipped to teach their children about the Bible.
We know that can be intimidating, so we want to give you easy resources you can really use. Check out the discussion here:
Resources from today’s Video:
helps families start where they are already gathered together on a daily basis―around the dinner table. As the meal comes to a close, family members can take turns turning to the dinner-table devotion for that day, designed to be done together as a family in 10 to 15 minutes. The result is a meaningful daily discussion in which every family member can participate, drawing the whole family closer to God . . . and each other.
Thanks to Lisa, for this resource. Lisa is our Admin Assistant at the Munford campus. She has this on her Pinterest board that is full of resources to teach her granddaughter (pre-school age) about Jesus. You can check out her board here.

This is a great resource for maps and timelines. It’s great to help kids (and adults!) visualize their study of the Bible. They also have an app (iOS & Android).

There’s a great article by Christina Fox over at TGC called “5 Reasons to Read Missionary Biographies to Your Children”. Check out her article and suggestions of missionaries to start reading about with your kids.
20:05 Ten Questions
Tom Ellif, Tom Elliff, former president of the Southern Baptist Convention has published several resources for family. Among “10 Questions to Ask Your Wife Every Year” and “10 Questions to Ask Your Husband Every Year”. These are GREAT resources from Family Life. You can download 10 Questions parents should ask their children every year. As Jeff explains in the video, parents ask these questions and allow their children to answer without comment. So that removes arguing and for the need for defensiveness!
21:44 The Talk
If we want our children to know the truth about healthy sexuality, we need to create a comfortable climate of continual conversations. This book will show you how to move beyond the initial awkwardness of this subject into an ongoing communication with your kids about God’s amazing gift of sex. He equips you with what you need to talk openly about dating, temptation, porn, and purity, and you will find answers to tough questions and relevant Scripture on sexual issues.
We want to hear from you! What resources are you using that works?
