As a parent, you have a clear assignment from God.
Sounds a little intense, doesn’t it? But, you do.
You are assigned to your children with the purpose of making sure they grow on a Godly foundation and God has given you the exact instructions and guidance you need— The Bible!
“Direct your children onto the right path, and when they are older, they will not leave it.” Proverbs 22:6
How many times have you found yourself reading this verse and still asking, “But how?”
I know I’ve found myself asking for the how, and ironically I always end up receiving my answers by opening up my Bible.
Joshua 1:8 says to “Study this Book of Instruction continually. Meditate on it day and night so you will be sure to obey everything written in it. Only then will you prosper and succeed in all you do.”
There is just no way around it. In order for you to do the assignment given to you by God in the Bible, you have to study the Bible!
I want to encourage you to do it with your daughter!
We’d love to help you get started by GIVING YOU a Bible designed specifically for tween girls by Faithgirlz, as well as a copy of the brand new You’re God’s Girl Coloring Book and For Girls Like You Magazine Winter 2017 Issue!
But first, here are a few practical ways to get started on a journey of studying God’s Word together.
- Pray first. Teaching her to talk to God will strengthen her connection with and confidence in the Lord as she grows up.
- Ask her about problems she may be facing in school, with friends or even at home. You may be surprised by what she will share with you.
- Listen to her and point her to specific places in the Bible where God speaks into the particular thing she shares. Don’t be ashamed to use your Bible’s index or even the Internet. Find a word that resonates with how she is feeling, and go to the scriptures associated with it. This will start a nice conversation that will allow her to see that God is present and speaks to the details of her life.
- Don’t always wait for a problem. The Bible is full of good news, joyous occasions and reasons to celebrate! Remember to show her God even in the good times.
