Review: I can Learn the Bible

Memory verses and devotions that will write God’s word on your children’s hearts.
I cannot recommend this devotional enough.  A 52-week book featuring memory verses and devotions that will write God's word on your children's heart -- this book is a spin-off of The Joshua Code by O.S. Hawkins. His daughter, Holly, has taken her father's words for adults and transformed them into an incredible book for children.
Using kid-friendly language, I Can Learn the Bible teachers scriptures in a way children can understand. You can read this book one entry per week (there are 52 entries designed just for this), or you can do what we are doing which is reading one each evening and redoing them at the end of a 52-day period.
A common struggle exists among Christian parents today: as our culture moves further and further from the truths of God's Word, how can we influence our children to love God and follow His purposes for their lives? Holly Hawkins believes Joshua 1:8 has the answer. "This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your was prosperous, and then will have good success."
All the church and activities and prayer and discipline cannot compare to the Word of God being planted in our child's heart. And what I love about this book is that it does it in such a way that my children -- currently ages 3, 5, and 6 are enthralled with what I am reading. They are answering questions and asking questions and contributing and participating in the prayer at the end of each reading.
I strongly recommend this book to anyone looking to make God's word more alive in the heart of their child.
