Children Reading the Bible

“Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path”
(Psalm 119:105).

This summer Anna was helping us do some clearing out in our attic and discovered a couple of treasures—two large print, children’s Bibles that were a couple of our children’s first Bibles. They show much wear from loving use.

When our children could read on their own, we wanted each to have his own Bible and read it daily. We chose an inexpensive, hard-backed, large print Bible for their first Bibles. They were not old enough to care for a leather Bible.

Over time, by being responsible and diligent in their personal Bible reading, they each earned a nice, leather Bible.

Trusting in Jesus,
Teri

“As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word,
that ye may grow thereby” (1 Peter 2:2).

  1. Thank You for sharing!!
    We also get our children a Bible when they learn to read. It was an idea I read about long ago in one of your books, I believe. Ours never lasted to go to the attic, not the 1st ones anyway. 🙂 The cover would eventually fall off and the pages would start to tear. They were using them. So we would get another one when they were a few years older and able to be more careful.

    Have a good day!!

  2. Hi, we have wanted to do this. Our oldest is 4 and reading some. What type of Bible did you get them? A study Bible or one geared to a young age or just one with no added notes and information? Thank you for all your wisdom in raising godly children.
