My Thoughts: I was really excited about receiving this series. I was looking for additional materials to incorporate into our daily learning routine. When I introduced the books to my children they were really excited, because it was something that they could relate to on their level of understanding. We are still working on the series, learning and having fun along the way. This is an investment into your child’s spiritual future. This is so important in this day and age to establish a foundation while they are young. I loved the illustrations throughout every book in the series, they were really nice and helped engage the reader in the lesson. The Sword Study Series is an excellent resource to add to your library or your youth Bible study group. Everyone can learn something from these lessons and emerge a more insightful student of the scriptures. We hope you enjoy reading and learning through this series as we are. Enjoy.
What type of foundation or principles are you instilling in your children? I would love to hear your thoughts.
Proverbs 22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.
