Here's what we've been reading online this past week:

Knowable Word had a post helping parents teach their children to have devotions. It reads, "... when your child is old enough to read, give him a Bible and train him to use it." Parents this is our honor, privilege, and responsibility.

Sam Luce had a great post about the movie Inside Out and why sadness matters. He says, "Sadness matters because it refines us and biblical sorrow matters because it defines us." I've seen the movie and couldn't agree more. Thanks Sam for the reminder (... and for putting to words what I was thinking ... and for saying it better than I would've). Parents how are we teaching our kids to deal with sadness?

Hannah Anderson had a post on Gospel-Centered Discipleship on how catechisms create wonder. She says, "As you go about discipling your children, as you teach them their Bible verses and correct them when they disobey, do not neglect the sacred discipline of awe." Parents (& pastors) it's not just about information, but transformation (through application).
