So let me just start off by saying (just in case someone doesn’t know) that I am a Mama bear♥ Yes, I have FIVE kids and if the Lord is willing I would love to have many more. I know that true motherhood isn’t really valued in these last and evil days, but it is truly an honor and a blessing to be called to raise up babies in the fear and admonition of the Lord. But anyways (because that’s another post for another day), I just wanted to share what bibles I use to teach my children in addition to teaching them by being, of course.
So we use the New Living Translation (NLT) whenever we do group bible studies. And we use these New International Reader’s Version (NIrV) Adventure Bibles that I just bought for everyday reading. Now we have to be VERY careful with some translations (or paraphrases!) of the bible because many are watered down in order to be palatable for the world. But I have been reading this version lately in my own quiet time and I’m telling you that it’s legit. Its even helped inspire a few of my latest posts!
Also, if you have babies and/or toddlers don’t worry, I do too. I found a “Beginner’s bible” that sticks to the scriptures. And this is something that the kids can read to each other (or you can do like I do and just read it to them in place of silly bedtime stories!).
So I hope that you check these versions out. Let me know if you are curious about what versions I like to read and study with myself.
P.s I purchased these bibles from Hobby Lobby (and from Amazon) for around $10 each!
