Give Them Truth
Teaching Eternal Truths to Young Minds
How do you prepare children for life’s ups and downs? How do you push back the harmful messages of our culture? And how do you give your kids something better – the truth?
Whether you are a parent or a teacher, Starr Meade encourages you to impart a robust knowledge of God to your children from a young age, because a sound theology will prepare them for whatever life has in store. Our kids need to know God in order to grow in love for him and to live for him. When we teach the truths of Scripture to our children, we give them truth to love and live by.
Contains chapter on how to teach children each of these vital, key biblical truths:
– God the Almighty Father and maker
– Jesus Christ
– The Church
– God’s Law
– Rigor, Reading, Rote and Balance
– “Grammar” of the Bible: Teaching Foundations
– “Grammar” of Doctrine: Teaching via Catechism
Like math, grammar, piano, or soccer, God’s Word takes time to learn and understand. Where do parents and teachers begin? Starr Meade will guide you and your children into the core doctrines of the Christian faith. On your journey together, you will find that teaching kids about God deepens your own understanding. It’s never too late to learn, and there’s nothing better to give than truth.
