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. It is an interactive exchange that takes place as the adult and the children discover meaning, wonder at the marvelous, mourn over the heartaches, ponder the incomprehensible, and rejoice in the beautiful together. Reading with children requires engaging your mind and heart in the text, letting your emotions overflow as you read together.... More

In the heart of every Christian grandmother is the desire for her grandchildren to know Jesus as their Savior. This was my heart's desire nine years ago when I wrote the text to Jesus Is Most Special. It didn’t start out as text for a children’s book about the birth of Christ. It was simply the expression of one grandmother’s heart that her granddaughter would know of God’s love in sending the Savior.

"I wrote More Than a Story to give children a taste of the treasure that there is in God’s Word," Sally Michael says in a new video about the soon-to-be-released More Than a Story:Old Testament. "I wanted them to see the manifold character of God—that He is holy, sovereign, unchanging, self-existent, powerful, eternal, loving, patient, gracious, merciful, attentive, wise, righteous, and just. I wanted them to grasp the storyline of the Bible and to have a robust understanding of biblical doctrine."
As a child, October 31 only meant two things to me: costumes and candy – lots and lots of candy! I wonder how many children, even children from Christian homes, think the same?
Often lost on this date is something vastly more significant: Martin Luther nailing his 95 Theses to the door of a Roman Catholic Church in Wittenberg, Germany, in the year 1517. With this act, Martin Luther sparked the great Protestant Reformation. As Christian parents and teachers, we must teach our children about this historic movement.
Parents often hear about the importance of family devotions, but I wonder how many parents actually feel readily equipped and personally encouraged in doing family devotions. How can the church help “to equip the saints for the work of ministry” (Ephesians 4:12) in discipling their children? One way is to make sure parents have access to biblically-solid, engaging, easy-to-use devotional resources. Toward that end, we are excited to announce a specially discounted Truth78 “Family Devotions Collection.”
