Child Training Bible Review & Giveaway

When we found out we were expecting our first child, my husband and I discussed all of the things we wanted to teach our child… one thing we didn’t discuss was discipline. It’s not really something you think about when you have a baby, it’s not really necessary at that point! As our family has grown, we knew that as they needed more discipline and training that we wanted to do so in a way that glorified God and taught them right from wrong biblically. I wanted to use our bible to help teach our children when they did something wrong or needed to learn why something they did wasn’t right or Christ-like.

I was incredibly excited to come across the Child Training Bible, an incredible resource made by a homeschooling mom named Mindy Dunn. As a mother of five children she wanted to raise her children and train them up using scripture. Just like us, she tried many different ways to utilize her bible in a way to teach and discipline, but found that directly using her bible over outward sources was the best way. So she created a system that anyone could use to create their own training bible.

All you do is head over to Mindy’s website and order the chart set HERE. You can order one set, or order larger quantities for your group (and receive a discount depending on how many you purchase). The sets include a training bible key, three tabbing charts, and a set of instructions. Then, you will have to purchase a set of highlighters, tabs and the bible you hope to use.

You can click the images below to order your highlighters and tabs.

        
I chose to use my Message bible for this, though I will say it was a little harder to find what I needed to highlight because of the way the Message bible is laid out compared to your typical bible. I may end up redoing it in my NIV bible at a later point, but for now this is working just fine!

We’ve started using this whenever we find a need to teach or discipline our children, some of the biggest issues we come across with our children are fighting, lying and tattling. They aren’t always very excited about this, but we’ve found that when we use the word of God to help teach them, they listen more and care more about what we are saying. Especially Boogie… she was incredibly upset the first time we did this with her. She was constantly hitting and scratching Bubby, it’s such a competition with them and that’s how she was reacting to his behavior. So I sat her down and we went over the verses on fighting and had her do some copywork and then write a prayer in her journal. She was ANGRY, she was upset, and then when she finally finished she realized why her mommy was having her do all of this.

Using scripture teaches our children not just what WE want them to know, but what God wants them to know… and I think that makes a world of difference. I saw my child’s heart soften as she copied her bible verses, and I saw my child write a prayer that asked God to help soften her heart towards her brother.

If you have ever desired an easier way to find the scriptures you need to help teach your child, this resource is the way to go. It’s also a great resource to use for your bible curriculum, we’ve really been able to utilize this during our bible studies!

“Train up a child in the way he should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.” Proverbs 22:6

  1. I would love to win a child training Bible to use with my children in our homeschool to teach them biblical virtues.

  2. Ha! I didn’t read the instructions first. I would love being able to easily find a verse needed for a particular issue, but it also makes it easier for my son to look up for himself verses pertinent to his current sin issue.

  3. Would love that win a child training Bible so that in moments of high emotions, we can quickly reference the word and see what God has to say about it!

  4. I’m a single mom of 4 kids–11 & under. Would love to be able to give them one. I have always heard about these and would love to try one.

  5. I would love to win one to make a set for a friend who does not have one. We love this resource and use it often with our six kids.

  6. I would love to win this bible to help train my girls. I want to give them biblical backup for the things I’m wanting to instill in them.

  7. I would like to win this because I am a foster mom and have many children come through my home having an easy-to-use Bible for children under 12 which is the average age I take in children they usually end up in different homes or back with their parents and I think they should know Jesus and know that there is a better way to live! This tool will help me successfully give them the background that they need no matter where their journey ends.

  8. This is an amazing give away! I have always remembered how much of an impact it had on me as a child when my parents would sit us down and explain what God wanted from us! I cant wait to be able to share these experiences with my little family and this training Bible set would be a very useful tool!

I would love to hear from you! Comment away!
