“You’re kind of overprepared for a couple hours at the zoo, don’t you think?” My friend pointed at my giant backpack with a wrinkled nose.
I shrugged. I could only hope I had packed too much. “Maybe. But that’s how I roll,” I said as I took off after our six kids running toward the hippo enclosure. Well, five kids. As usual, my youngest was in a full run at a 90 degree angle to everyone else, heading toward the lions.
By the end of the day, I was exhausted. As the kids leaned against the railing of the bat house, I noted a couple of our children wore sweatshirts or socks from my bag. Everyone was snacking on their own sack of dried fruit. One sported a brightly colored Band-Aid.
My overstuffed backpack was noticeably lighter.

You want to teach the Bible…
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!
2 Timothy 2:15, ESV, says:
Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved,
a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth.
Our job, as parents who love Jesus, is to help our kids become approved workers, unashamed and rightly handling the word of truth.
The good news? Teaching the Bible isn’t hard. Your family can learn the Bible together.
…and you can!
