As my older children get older and my younger ones come up, I have come to realize that I forget.

I forget that my youngest hasn’t fully learned/comprehended things my older ones know. I realize that I sometimes take for granted that all my kids understand just because some of them do.

I know I only have 4 children, but with 7 years between the oldest and youngest… I often forget that I’ve not been as consistent at teaching my youngest. {does that make any sense?} [My husband is much better at teaching them!]

from Deuteronomy 11:

18 ~Therefore shall ye lay up these my words in your heart and in your soul, and bind them for a sign upon your hand, that they may be as frontlets between your eyes. 19~And ye shall teach them your children, speaking of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, when thou liest down, and when thou risest up. 20~And thou shalt write them upon the door posts of thine house, and upon thy gates:

We canNOT stop teaching our children truths of God…

NOT STOP!

This blog was born out of a desire to share, with whomever wanted to read, things I was learning as a young wife and mother…

And this is one thing I’m learning:

Do NOT stop reminding your children the truths of God,
even if they “already know that, mom.”

I’m glad my mom didn’t stop, even when I felt she was redundant {because don’t all 14 year olds know everything?} 🙂

Several years ago, I found several blogs that were aged women sharing truths they learned …[as Scripture commands].

And I was so grateful!

And I want to share what I am learning, as I learn it, so maybe I won’t forget it 🙂

Now that I’ve begun Bible Journaling, I have a renewed spirit to learn and teach and grow! [And I’m still working through James :0 ]

So, back to first-things-first: WE [parents] MUST teach our children: GOD IS. 

Our children will automatically know God
just because we do.

He is real.

This FACT is a fundamental of our faith in Him.

It’s the FIRST…
