Hi, I’m Gina!
Follower of Christ, wife, mommy to three boys, & second generation homeschooling mama passionate about raising little disciples who know and love the Lord.
Deuteronomy 6:7 commands us to teach our children diligently. It teaches us that this happens in the mundane: when we sit in our house, when we walk by the way, when we lie down, and when we rise up. We are called to diligently train and guide our children to know and love the Lord in all that we do.
Did you know that 90% of brain growth happens before kindergarten? Before a child turns six years old, their brains have developed more than any other time in life. Early brain development has a lasting impact on a child and the early years are when they are developing those connections that will establish the way they process things for the rest of their lives. Amazing, isn’t it?! Knowing this has created even more urgency when it comes to equipping my children with truth and guiding them through these impressionable, foundational years. Children are naturally eager learners. Their sponge-like brains just soak in the world around them which makes it all the more important to make sure that what they are soaking in is feeding their soul.
The Bible tells us in Psalms 19, that God’s creation reveals to us His glory, His handiwork, His testimony. We know that His living word, His commandments, and His ways are what we are commanded to diligently teach to our children. His ways make wise the simple and are sweeter than the sweetest honey and drippings of honeycomb!
So lead your children to the living water! Soak them in His word when you rise up, lie down, walk by the way, and sit in your house. Immerse them in His creation that is just proclaiming His glory and revealing His marvelous handiwork!
