One of my deepest hopes (and prayers) is that all four of my kids will come to know, love, and follow Jesus. As their mom, I try to avoid cramming God, the Bible, and my beliefs down their throats. However, I have a golden opportunity to impart wisdom and values, and to plant tiny seeds of faith in them as I live out my life with them. Here are some great resources I’ve found SO helpful along the way that would also make wonderful gifts this holiday season.
Vivid illustrations and easy-to-read text make this a perfect starter Bible for your littlest ones (age 6 and under.)
This is the first “real” Bible I gave to my older kids. It comes with multiple translations, colorful illustrations and commentary.
This award-winning book is exactly what the title implies–the Bible in storybook format. The kiddos will love the brilliant illustrations, as well as the down-to-earth conversational tone.
My kids LOVE graphic novels, so this pick was a no-brainer for me. My son devoured it in less than a week, and I am astonished by how much he remembers. There is also a companion trivia card game that is ultra-challenging, and fun.
I loved listening to Adventures in Odyssey as a kid, and it’s been so much fun watching my kids fall in love with the quirky characters and twist-turn storylines. This boxed set is perfect for long road trips, and will keep every person in the car entertained.
It’s been really important for my husband and myself that our kids know the reason for why they believe what they do. I was at a women’s conference when I noticed Cold Case Christianity. It’s a fun and great way to help your kids to think for themselves, rather than just telling them what to think. This is a great resource for kids who are especially inquisitive (like my own), and need to know the “why” behind the “what.”
I used to glue my own illustrated sheets of paper between pages in my Bible long before Bible journaling was a thing. Thankfully, there’s a much better way. Artistic kids like my daughter can enjoy this journaling Bible without going to all of that trouble. Oh–and don’t forget the pens!
I hope you found this guide helpful. I’m always looking for gifts that I won’t want to purge the following year (ha), and bonus points for goodies that help me plant those faith seeds. At the risk of sounding cheesy, these gifts truly will keep on giving.
