mykdsmomy Posted January 25, 2011 Share Posted January 25, 2011 I hope this is ok to post here. We use a variety of curriculum but it is all secular. I have never been able to easily integrate faith/God/Jesus into our lessons. I know that sounds lame because it seems like a simple idea....but I just don't know "how" to do it. :confused: I have tried doing a bible verse a week or bible reading time, etc....but they never last and honestly I have a hard time explaining some of the verses that we have chosen (usually proverbs). I have two goals here: 1. Character building. I want to ingrain in them the golden rule of loving God with all your heart and loving others as yourselves. I want them to live by WWJD? and 2. Study the bible and really know the history behind why we believe what we do so they have a strong foundation in their faith. I was raised Catholic but it was old school Catholicism. We went to mass every Sunday, never missed a holy day of obligation, observed lent with more rules than any other Catholic I have ever known! I was raised with a fear of God rather than truly knowing Him. Although our home was very "religious", we were lacking in the whys. My mom was more fire and brimstone both in her parenting and in religion. So even though I've been "christian" all my life, I've really just begun to understand the protestant side of things in the last 6 years or so (since we started attending a basic Christian church). Long story short, how do you teach biblical principles? Do you use a specific curriculum? Do you do a bible study with your children? Any specific books/guides you use? TIA! (and I used to teach CCD classes when we were still Catholic! :001_huh: ) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
