  2. Leading family devotions

    Leading family devotions

    While instruction in the Scriptures can and should happen in a church setting, it can never replace the humble, face-to-face context of loving relationships in the home. It is in this relationship of trust and love that head knowledge becomes heart knowledge. Anyone can share information with a child, but when a child learns something from a trusted and loved person, the child is more likely to embrace that knowledge as truth—especially if that truth is demonstrated in everyday life as it is modeled by trusted mentors....

  3. Reading More Than a Story With Children

    Reading More Than a Story With Children

    There is a difference between reading with children and reading to children. Reading to children is when an adult reads and children listen; but reading with children is experiencing the story, the words, and the ideas together.

Reading with children requires engaging your mind and heart in the text, letting your emotions overflow as you read together.... More

    Standing Firm at the End of All Things

    Not only has the end of 2020 arrived, but as the Apostle Peter asserted in his first letter that “the end of all things is at hand” (1 Peter 4:7). His letter ends with the exhortation for us to “stand firm in it.” Nothing motivates us more at Truth78 than the hope and earnest prayer that our children will be standing firm in “the true grace of God" (1 Peter 5:12) as we anticipate the end of all things....
