1,000th Post + 4 Year Blogging Anniversary = A Great Giveaway!

Shortly after my son was born I began blogging.  I wanted a place where I could write down memories for my kids.  How I wish I had something like this of my childhood!  Here I am 4 years later.  We have made it through deputation, a three year wait for our visas, several trips to the Navajo reservation, and a BIG move to Australia!  God has been so good to us.  We truly are blessed.

And now here I am with 150 followers through Google Friend Connect and over 27,000 page views!  Very cool.  Thanks for coming by and reading my blog. 

*******************************************************************

Awhile back a friend sent me the link for the Child Training Bible.  I was intrigued.  I watched the video on their site and had one of those "why didn't I think of that" moments!  I prefer to use Scripture when disciplining my kids.  I think it is very important to see that God hates sin.  I also think it is just as important to show them that God loves them, and take this time to introduce important things like repentance, forgiveness, and grace. 

This is why I love the Child Training Bible.  When an issue occurs, I can go directly to the Bible and show them several verses on the issue we are dealing with.  Whether it be anger, laziness, tattling, jealousy, or sharing the Gospel. 

Let me explain further.  When you purchase the kit you will receive:
- 1 Child training Bible key (on laminated cardstock)
- 3 easy tabbers
- 1 set of instructions

You will also need to purchase:
- 1 Bible (9"x6")
- 7 different color markers, colored pencils, or crayons
- 7 different color post-it tabs

The cost of the kit?  Just $9
(plus the cost of tabs and markers)

To begin to assemble your Bible, use double-sided tape to stick the key to the inside of your Bible, in the front.

This next part takes a bit of time, but I promise, it is worth every minute!  You use the tabbers to look up the verses under each category and place a matching color tab on the right side of the page (whether the verse is on the left or right) where you find the Scripture passage.  Then underline the verse or color in the verse with the matching color.  I used crayons.


This is what the top looks like when it is completed!

And here it is open and completed.  I love the colors.
So will your kids!


Now for the giveaway!  Mindy, the wonderful lady who created the Child Training Bible, is letting me give away one Child Training Bible kit to one of my readers!


Here's all you need to do.  Leave me a comment.  Easy peasy.

For extra entries (please leave a comment for each extra entry)...

- "Like" me on Facebook
- Follow The Child Training Bible via google friend connect or through email
- "Like" The Child Training Bible on Facebook

That is 8 chances to win!  I only have one to give away.  So if you don't win, I encourage you to buy one for yourself!  (If you do, please tell Mindy I sent you.)  The Bible should be our main source for training our children, and this is a great companion tool.

Winner will be announced next Monday - March 26.
