**************************************************************

So much to do, so little time. As parents, we often feel that way. Yet there are some opportunities we don’t want to let slip by. One is instilling God’s simple, foundational truths in our young children through Bible stories.

In finding what works for you and your family, be kind to yourself, but start with yourself. A Bible story will have more positive impact if you read or tell it when you can find a few moments to give your child loving attention. Once a week with joy is better than once a day as a “check it off my long to-do list” event.

 Need a few suggestions for times you might share Bible stories with your little ones?

1. Read or tell a story to your child while bathing him or her, preparing for bed, or riding in the car.

2. Tuck a Bible story book in your tote when taking your child to places that require a wait like doctors’ appointments or restaurants.

3. Encourage your older children (readers) to read to your younger ones. The stories will be good for both.

4. Flip through the pages, look at the pictures, and share the big idea from each story, especially with younger preschoolers.

The most important strategy for instilling Bible stories into your kids’ hearts is to find what works for you.  We want your ideas!
