Day 3: From my Home Front, Children's Books

Day 3: Children's Books.

It took work but once my son learned to read he quickly gained a love for it! I want to always set out as an example before him to read, read, read and then read. Reading is the way we learn from others and there  is so much we've got left to learn! Another huge responsibility for moms is to be picky with what our children read. They're developing minds have so many questions and are forming world views and we have to be careful what we put in front of them. We do fiction, we love fiction but books that merely teach moralism will not be found. I want my children to be moral but out of an outflow from their love of Jesus. I want them to see Christ as their treasure and have actions of faith because they love Jesus, not because that's just what you do. 

On that note, I snagged these biographies for my son this summer from a used book sale and we have really enjoyed them! I want my son to read of men who have expected great things from God and done great things for God! What a better way then through kid level biographies!
