What I got to tell my kids yesterday... thanks to you.

Teaching the Bible to your kids is a challenging undertaking. It's a wonderful command from God, but it is often tedious and demanding where some days you wonder if it's making any difference. Any of you parents who attempt family Bible time, which we all need to do*, know what's it like to think about throwing a cell phone (or two) into the yard, mummy duct-taping the 2 yr old so they'll stay still, (ours likes to make it "look at how cute I am time"), tranquilizing the young boy or snapping your fingers at the blank faces into which you stare as you talk about the recurring themes of the Book of Matthew and their significance.
