A Family Discipleship Gift Guide

After a long and challenging year, we are eagerly yearning to celebrate the “good news of great joy”—the birth of Christ our Savior—and the many longstanding family traditions that accompany it. Gift-giving (especially in a child’s mind!) is one of those traditions. But over the years, our gift list for our grandchildren is being shaped not so much by what they “want” (new toys, crafts, and games) but also by what they really need. What kind of gifts might serve to nourish their souls for a lifetime? What gifts might help them to better see the incomparable treasure of Jesus? What gifts can assist their parents in discipling them?

Toward that end, Truth78 is pleased to offer this special family discipleship gift guide highlighting resources that parents and children can enjoy together. The resources target various age groups and include a range of ease of use—from extremely simple read aloud stories to more formal Bible instruction. From simple parenting tools to deeper discipleship training.  

So before you fill up your gift-giving list with an endless array of temporal pleasures for children, be sure to include some God-centered, Christ-exalting, Bible-saturated, discipleship-oriented resources at the top of the list. Helping children discover the riches of God’s Word is a gift that will truly keep on giving for a lifetime as they find in it the source of unshakable, all-satisfying, never-ending joy!
