Ep. 160: Helping Your Kids Know and Love the Word of God, with Hunter Beless
The Most Natural Way to Share a Love of Scripture with your Kids
Hunter Beless, host of the Journeywomen Podcast, Mom to four (#4 is coming later this year!) and author of the new kids’ book, Read it, See it, Say it, Sing it! Joins us with the most encouraging message. Hunter’s love of God’s Word is absolutely contagious, and her heart to pass it down to our kids is so beautiful.
In today’s conversation, Hunter talks about why we need to read, memorize, and talk about God’s Word in our own lives as parents. She offers some tips for reading the Bible with your kids, and where to start if your new! I think you’ll love Hunter’s heart and this conversation!
