Parenting is more than behavior-molding…

Parenting is about dealing with the heart issues behind the behaviors of your child. And the Word of God is a powerful tool to use in your heart training.

When I’m actively parenting the heart of my child, I can pull out my marked Bible and easily find passages of Scripture that address the issue or character quality my child is struggling with or wants to develop. I love how easy it is to use this Bible!

Supplies Needed:

You’ll need to order some supplies in order to put together a Child Training Bible or Virtue Training Bible. 

Note: I accidentally ordered a 8.5″ x 5.5″ Bible, so I adapted the instructions on the Child Training Bible website to fit my Bible.

How to Assemble the Child Training Bible and/or Virtue Training Bible

You’ll need to set aside several hours (or multiple chunks of time) to go through your Bible. You’ll be highlighting verses and aligning sticky flags to mark each verse.

If, like me, you purchase a smaller Bible than recommended (ahem), you can glue the “key” to the cover of your Bible and trim it accordingly. However, if you purchase the correct size, just insert the key inside the front cover.

Work through each topic – one at a time. Find each verse listed, highlight it and place the corresponding flag.

Even just doing this is a great way to familiarize yourself with the Bible and the various Scriptures for each topic!

Once you have the entire Bible marked, you can share it with your children. Use it as you seek to train the heart of your children to love God completely!
