I love Pinterest. Have I told you that before? I’m sure I have.
While I was playing around on Pinterest this week, I found this:
It’s called the Child Training Bible, and it’s brilliant! Mindy, a homeschooling mother of four, was looking for a way to teach her children to turn to the Bible when they have issues that need to be addressed (both good and bad). She came up with the concept of the Child Training Bible. Basically, she bookmarked and color coded passages that address different issues children deal with. She made a unique little index, and the Child Training Bible was born.
I was so impressed, I bought the supplies to make my own CTB, and hopefully I’ll be able to work on it this weekend! And even though it’s called a Child Training Bible, I think it’s really appropriate for all ages.
In other news, due to my new way of eating, I’m down another few pounds this week, for a total weight loss of 6 pounds in two weeks. That makes me a happy camper!
