Help Your Kids Learn and Love the Bible
Give Them the Words of Life
As parents, we deeply desire the best for our kids. We look for the right schools, we make them eat right and exercise, and we get them involved in extracurricular activities. We take our job as parents seriously.
But are we also putting our time and energy into teaching them the Bible? Giving them the life-changing, soul-nourishing words of Scripture is not only doable, it's an essential part of parenting kids for Jesus. And the good news is, studying God's Word as a family doesn't have to be difficult!
This book will give you the tools and confidence to study the Bible as a family. It will help you identify and overcome your objections and fears, give you a crash course in what the Bible is all about and how to teach it, and provide the guidance you need to set up a family Bible study habit.
You will finish this book feeling encouraged and empowered to initiate and strengthen your child's relationship with the Lord through his Word.
"Every Christian parent wants to raise biblically literate children. Of course, that begs the question: In this day and age, how can we raise kids who are passionate about scriptural truth? Danika Cooley has a heart for seeing the next generation truly know and embrace God's Word--and her new book shows parents exactly how to achieve that crucial goal."
Jim Daly, president, Focus on the Family
"Teaching our children the Bible is one of the most important things we can do. But with all the busyness of life, it can be easy to get overwhelmed or struggle with making it a regular part of our family routines. Help Your Kids Learn and Love the Bible is the resource parents need to help them confidently and faithfully teach their children God's Word. Danika's practical tools and suggestions equip parents to make regular Bible study a natural part of their family life. It's exactly the book I wish existed when we first started our parenting journey!"
Tauna Meyer, author, Sound Words for Kids: Lessons in Theology; owner, Proverbial Homemaker
"Inspiring! Even before I had finished the book, I took up Danika's call to START TODAY and read systematically through the Bible with my children. I have no other mission as a mother but to teach my children God's Word and point them to Christ's saving grace over and over again."
Amy Roberts, author, speaker, and blogger at RaisingArrows.net
"The greatest gift you can give to your child to increase mental and emotional health is spiritual training. In this book, Danika shows you how!"

"God has a mighty plan for this generation. We at Moms in Prayer International are witnessing God move throughout the world on behalf of children and schools as we pray. We as parents have the great calling to encourage, equip, and empower our children forward. The greatest weapon they have is God's Word. God's Word will fill them with the wisdom, knowledge, courage, strength, and guidance they will need to become all God has created them to be. In this book, you will find the tools you need to begin the journey with your children and blessing them with the greatest gift possible, His Word. I love the humor, the stories, the examples, and the truths that Danika Cooley shares in her great book. Don't miss out!"
Sally Burke, president, Moms in Prayer International
"Do family devotions make you feel guilty? Inadequate? Struggling with busyness, illness, or children of many ages? Danika Cooley has, too! Help Your Kids Learn and Love the Bible is a warmhearted blend of challenge and encouragement that will guide you--and help you love the Word more, too!"
Hal & Melanie Young, authors of Raising Real Men
"If you are a parent with more questions than answers about studying the Bible with your kids, this book may be the answer to your prayers. Danika Cooley combines stories from personal experience and biblical passages to give parents creative and practical suggestions on how to have regular and meaningful Bible study as a family. Cooley wants to make this the 'Generation of the Bible,' and Help Your Kids Learn and Love the Bible may do this!"
William H. Marty, former professor of Bible at Moody Bible Institute, author of The Whole Bible Story
"Raising children who love the Scriptures doesn't happen on its own. Help Your Kids Learn and Love the Bible provides experienced wisdom in not only preparing yourself to pass on a love for God's Word, but also preparing your children to be receptive. This is a book you can't afford to miss as Christian parents!"
