The Child Training Bible

Have you heard of the Child Training Bible?  I noticed a lot of homeschool bloggers reviewing this lately and from the first time I saw it I knew I wanted to use this in my home.  Over the years, I have read MANY books on parenting and child training, but ultimately it's the Bible I want to use to train my children.  I was thrilled to have an opportunity to review this and give one away! (so keep reading to the end)


The Child Training Bible Kit is a set of 4 laminated cards that allow you to mark your own Bible or one you purchase just for this purpose. I purchased this Bible for $9.99 which I am very happy with.  It took me a few hours to get my new Bible all set up and it was a blessing to do it.  This kit would make a wonderful baby shower gift or gift for any parent.  You could set it up for whoever you are giving it to but I am glad I had the opportunity to do it myself.  


My Child Training Bible completed with all the tabs.

As mentioned the CTB kit comes with 4 laminated cards.  The cards are sturdy and look like they will hold up over a long period of time.  The first card is the key that you tape using double sided tape to the inside cover of your Bible and makes it easy to find the verses for each "offense".  The remaining cards called tabbers are printed on both sides.  The first side lists the Bible verses for each tab and is used to help you set up your Bible.  The opposite side is divided into 3 sections.  The first two sections have questions to help open up the discussion after reading the scriptures and the third section contains prayers with scripture that you can pray with your child at the end of a training session.  You can clip these cards inside the back cover of your Bible with a binder clip or make a pocket to slide them into.


Inside the Bible.  Verses are highlighted.
I found that with some of the darker colors it was better to underline rather than highlight.
The Bible I bought has lighter ink so it might just be because of that.
This video is a great overview of what the Child Training Bible is, how to put it together and how to use it.






You can purchase your own Child Training Bible kit for $9 plus $4.99 shipping for up to 2 kits. She also offers discounts for orders of 10 or more. You will also need a 9"x6" Bible, post it flags and highlighters to complete your kit. Product suggestions can be found on the CTB Order Supplies page. Visit the Child Training Bible website to learn how it came into existence and more about the creator.

I assume you only need one . . . not one for each child? It looks pretty neat.

I absolutely adore this idea, and would love to win for my 6 year old who enjoys reading the Bible. He could really benefit from being able to quickly find a verse on a specific subject! Thanks for the giveaway!

It looks like a great teaching tool.

I would love to win one of these for my 2 girls. We have entered many contests to try to get one. I hope we win!

Ms. Sigurdson said...

This looks great! It would be wonderful to have the scripture verses ready to go, instead of having to stop and research an appropriate verse every time a child needs correction.

It would be great to have ready-answers to tough situations! This looks great!

after attending a homeschool conference with my husband this past weekend we are both more convicted about training our boys with a solid Biblical foundation and I think this would be a huge blessing toward that goal

blessedchick said...

I would love to win this or my family. We have 3 young boys and have been looking for ways to teach them more about Gods word

This looks amazing! I lead a group and would live to get all 5 girls a kit. Maybe I will win one!!!! :)

Elizabeth B said...

I recently started hearing about this bible and have wanted to get my hands on one ever since! I think this would be so helpful for our family! We are trying to memorize verses with our little ones, but there are moments when I don't have the verse on the tip of my tongue or a training moment comes up that I don't have a memorized verse for! This would be a huge help!

amberlindemann said...

Julie said...
