Customer Reviews for What Does the Bible Say About That?
What Does The Bible Say About That? covers 340 topics that kids (and adults) face. Some topics that my family is dealing with and appreciated reading about were: Obedience, Lying, Brothers and Sisters, Cooperation, Empathy, Speech and Self-confidence.I love the length of the lessons. They are brief and conversational. They aren't done in a lecturing sort of way, but are instead written gently and honestly.I view this book as a wonderful teaching tool to point our Children to Christ and away from a parent motivated lecture. Ultimately It's God's word that I want my children to obey, not simply mine. Everything else falls into place when they seek His advice and follow His instructions.I plan to use this book in several ways as issues arise in my home.First, I will read the topic that relates to whatever issue my children are struggling with. If I have to repeat the topic more than once then my next step will be to make the child memorize a scripture from that page. If it continues to be an area of struggle in my home then I will make my children write out the "Today I will" statements at the end of that topic's page.God's word can't be contested and it must be known to our children if we expect them to be adults who are solid in their faith and moral members of society. Carolyn Larsen did a wonderful job of saying just enough to encourage the heart of a child and inspire them to seek God's opinion in times of uncertainty. As the wife of a Children's Pastor, I have seen many devotional style books for children. What I love most about Carolyn Larsen's book, What Does The Bible Say About That?, is her relatable style and her ability to present such valuable information while respecting the short attention span of a child.I highly recommend this book.
