~Bible Study~

Bible study can begin right at birth.  Reading from the Bible daily will familiarize your child with the scriptures when he is young.  As your child gets older he can begin to read from the Bible with help.  By age 10 your child should be able to read the Bible all by himself.  Having a strong biblical background will help your child through his entire life.  Combine Bible study with prayer every day and you will feel peace and guidance, and strength to meet each day with joy.

Main Resource:  King James Bible
