Bible boy

We try (and I stress that word) to read scriptures together as a family. I’m not sure much really gets through to the little troops, but it’s the habit that’s important I guess. Because our kids are 2, 4, 6, & 8 we haven’t really encouraged them to read the scriptures themselves just yet. They have enough trouble with their elementary school books, and the younger two haven’t even hit kindergarten. But for some reason, Ethan, the oldest, has decided that reading the full-on Bible is a good idea. I can barely get him to read cartoon books. The other day we were in the mini-van and he was in the back reading away. He proudly threw out this quote that I chuckled at:

"I really like the Bible because it’s really big and I'm reading it right now. I'm on chapter Two.”

Sure didn’t want to burst his bubble by telling him how many chapters were left. But I gave the right response, “That’s great, Ethan. Tell us how it ends, ok?”

You know, I've noticed that it's amazing what words young kids can read and even understand when it's something that the Lord wants them to read. It's truly been a testimony builder to me as we've tried to read scriptures so keep it up!

That's great! Your kids seem like they have a ton of character.
