Hiding the Word in Their Hearts

Hiding the Word in their heartsI will forever be grateful to a Sunday School teacher I had when I was a just a baby Christian, a brand-new mom, and a newcomer to Lynchburg, Virginia. I didn’t grow up in a Christian home. As a matter of fact, I grew up as a Unitarian (I remember a class in Sunday School when I was in 7th grade where they taught us what we couldn’t believe in- no virgin birth, no trinity. Other than that you could believe whatever you wanted and be a Unitarian). I never learned a Bible story or verse till I was 16 years old. My first child was born on my 20th birthday. I remember going to this Sunday school class and feeling like a sponge, absorbing all this information about how to internalize Scripture and make it a part of my everyday life. It was so practical and I’d never heard anything like that before. In the margins as I’d take notes, I’d write down ways I could communicate what I was learning to my little son. So I focused my attention on how to teach Scripture to my little ones (I had a new baby approximately every 18 months or so). Since I didn’t know it myself, I learned it with my children. As I invested time in teaching them, I found I was learning it myself! So don’t feel like you have to know everything to teach it to your kids. I learned as I was teaching them!

In the next couple of weeks, I am going to share with you some of the things I learned and found successful with my fourteen children.
