I struggled with reading the first 30% or so of Big Truths for Young Hearts. I was expecting a family devotional, similar to the Family Nights series that I talk about here, in which I would be given a verse, some words to read to my kids, and then an activity to do.
But this book was so much better.
More than just another family devotional, Big Truths for Young Hearts explains profound theological truths on a level that an average parent could understand, and then teach to his or her school-age child. Each morning, I would read a three-page section to myself, and then during one of our meals during the day, I would summarize it for my family.
I don’t know what I enjoyed most:
- Learning theology on a level I could comprehend.
- Exposing my children to important theology.
- My children thinking I am the world’s greatest scholar.
I’ll take option #4, which is “All of the above.”
I wrote extensively about this book on the Grace Church Children’s Ministry Blog, but go ahead and order your copy today.
Has anyone else used this book to teach your kids? What did you think?
