Our Bible verse today, 6
In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct[a]
your paths. Proverbs 3:6. The words sound so simple, but the meaning is power beyond anything I could imagine for my children. Digging into the book of Proverbs with Doorposts Hidden Treasures
has been such a wonderful addition to our home schooling.
The spiral-bound book is laid out in an easy to read/teach format with the "hidden treasures" those being illustrations submitted by families and children for a Doorposts contest, located towards the end of the book. The book prepares you from beginning to end on how to read and apply the the illustrations to get your family to dig deeper into the book of Proverbs. While it doesn't include every single Proverb as I believe would make for a very large book, it covers the chapters nicely.
We utilize the book with our elementary grade children by reading each chapter aloud, while the children listen and gaze at the illustration. Once the reading is over, they try to pinpoint what verse the illustration is talking about. Once we think we have a good idea what the hidden treasure is, we follow the chapter by chapter notes and study suggestions. I love this part of the Bible time with the children as it helps us to really read, and understand what God is showing us through similes and metaphors and also to pick up on the writing style the author is using in Proverbs.
I also love that this book is not only set up for your very small children age 3, but also offers many ideas, suggestions and ways to use this book with your older children. There are special activities, and object lessons to use as study tools as well as a few charts to help organize your thoughts and what you've learned.
I recommend this book to you and your family, if you've been looking for a resource to get you and your children digging into God's word in a more personal way. Of course this doesn't need to be apart of your home school, but is a great addition to any family time or devotionals.
