Childrens Bible Roundup from Kids in the Word

Children’s Bible Roundup

I have an addiction: Children’s Bibles. It’s not that I don’t think having just one is sufficient, but I find that different versions excel in different areas. I find myself really enjoying being able to tap into those different strengths, depending on which part of the Bible we are studying. Often times I will read […]

Training Littles with the Teen Years in Mind | Danika Cooley for Kids in the Word

Training Littles with the Teen Years in Mind

I have a wise friend who often quotes her mother’s words to her: “The toddler you allow today is the teen you live with tomorrow.” Amen, sister. That’s some wisdom right there. My husband and I are standing on the cusp of the teen years for the third and fourth time. Somehow, wisdom is always […]

Seven fabulous Christian magazines for children under age 12!

Seven Fabulous Christian Children’s Magazines

I love magazines. They’re like dessert–graphic, engaging, and fun to read. My kids have picked up my love of magazines from me (and who doesn’t love receiving mail?), and I thought I’d share my favorite Christian children’s magazines with you. (Full disclosure: I’ve written for a number of these magazines.) If you’re looking for magazines […]

Keeping a Prayer Journal

Have you ever kept a diary or a journal? I recently came across a diary I had written in my pre-teen years and found it quite amusing. I have been an “on and off” again journal keeper for most of my life. Many years ago I vowed to stop writing in journals because I was […]

Dare To Be Different: A Lesson In Confidence

The other day my oldest daughter, Areyna, came home from school with a pretty long face. I could tell that something was wrong but I couldn’t quite put my finger on what area of her life was being affected simply by looking at her body language. I quickly began running through the list of questions […]

Help keep your teenager guarded from witchcraft

Teenagers and Witchcraft

Recently, my daughter came home and asked me about Voodoo and Ouija boards. She is 14, and goes to public middle school. There was a new “game” that had come out called “Charlie Charlie” and she wanted to know if it was real or not. It took everything in me to not drop my jaw. […]

Asking for Help

My daughter is passionately independent. Ever since she was a toddler she has wanted to “do it herself.” Sometimes this is a good trait. It allows her to figure out ways to complete complex tasks and have a great sense of accomplishment when she does. Sometimes, this trait is a curse. She finds it very […]
