But then I was a little convicted. How would I be able to share nuggets of truth from the Bible with my kids if I wasn't familiar with those words myself?
So I've started a new project called Words to Live By. I'm searching the Bible for different scriptures and then writing a sentence or two about how those apply to our lives. I'm going to make a little book out of it to share with Leeland. I expect the book to be constantly growing and changing as my little one constantly grows and changes. And I hope that as Leeland grows and our family (hopefully) grows, that Leeland will then be able to teach his little brothers and/or sisters these valuable lessons.
As I've been searching, not only will these lessons be valuable to my kids in the future, but I am doing a lot of learning myself. I am becoming more and more familiar with God's Word, which is the real reason I even started this project in the first place. The Lord is using this simple project to teach me a lot and I'm sure you'll be hearing more about it soon :)
