Summer Break and Bible study
It's that time again. Kids are out for Summer break. The last thing on their minds is going to be studying. That's exactly what they should be doing though; at least part of the time. Not doing so can mean starting next school year stagnant. Sweeping out the cobwebs and the pool water. Many have to get their minds back in the academic mode.
Summer time study doesn't have to seem like schoolwork though. You can make them think they are having fun. Once the whining stops they may have fun after all. Libraries are full of education books in story form. While they are being entertained they will learn something.
Remember academics aren't the only thing kids need to know. Most importantly children need to know God and The Lord Jesus. You may think telling kids to read the bible will cause more moaning than telling them to study. It's in the approach. Kids love action movies and stories. Use that to your advantage. Tell them a little bit about David. Most will know that he slew Goliath but David did more than that. He had to rescue sheep from a lion and a bear. To make things more interesting look for bibles made for young people. Many are illustrated to satisfy children's visual stimulation needs.
Think back to the bible stories you loved as a child. Tell them enough to spark their interests. How you give them the reading material is up to you. You can surprise them with a book or take them along to the book store or library. Make sure to guide them along in their study. There is more than just the action. They also need to learn to walk like Christ.
Take time to ask your child questions and see what they have learned. A smile on my children's faces always brings me joy. When they are smiling because of God my joy is even greater. Does your child like crossword puzzles? Here are four based on The Bible.

HEB 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. HEB 11:2 For by it the elders obtained a good report. HEB 11:3 Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which appeared. HEB 11:4 By faith Abel offered to God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained testimony that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaketh. HEB 11:5 By faith Enoch was translated, that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God. HEB 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
