Teaching Tuesday ~ Review & Giveaway

I am happy to be writing a review today and featuring the product on Teaching Tuesday. This tool has become a huge part of our lives and I love it! I am eager to share what I believe is an amazing tool to teach and train our children according to God’s Word.

The product I am speaking of is the Child Training Bible. For those of you who are new to the CTB, I’m thrilled you’ve stopped by to read and learn about it!

I want to share my experience and then I will go over the CTB kit and how you can use it.

My experience & Review

I have wanted to use God’s Word more in training my children over the last two years or so, but I never could “come up” with a scripture during the “heat of the moment.”

As a homeschool mom, I am always looking for new and better ways to incorporate God’s Word into our classroom and lives.

As a blogger I utilize many different social networks and it was while using Pinterest that I first came across the CTB.

I immediately knew that this is what I had been looking for. I watched and listened to their video and heard the passion in their voices! I had felt the same passion for teaching my children via God’s Word, yet had not come up with a system that worked.

I ordered everything that I needed to create my own CTB that day. I checked on the individual items on order EVERY DAY! I was so excited to get started!

As soon as I received the last item needed I sat down and began putting it together. I didn’t stop until I was finished! My children would stop playing once and awhile, just to check out what I was doing. They were intrigued!

I implemented using the CTB anytime we ran across an issue. I sit down and we read through all of the tabs for the issue we’re facing. I take time and ensure they understand what they’re reading.

Sometimes the children grab the CTB, sit down and read it themselves. Other times they fight reading, this I believe is because they do not like being shown they’re wrong, and do not like the conviction. All of this is part of our human nature, we want to be right ~ in ALL we do.

This fall, I plan to begin to studying one section at a time in detail, with my children. I do not want them to believe I am using it only as a tool when they’re misbehaving. I want to dig into God’s Word with them, discuss, understand and change together ~ to be more like our heavenly Father.

What the CTB is and How You Use it ~ 

The CTB is a biblical tool, that is used directly within the pages of a Bible!

There are 20 key areas covered that most children struggle with. Topics such as; anger, disobedience, defiance, not listening, etc.

Enclosed in the CTB Kit are ~ 1 CTB Key Card, 3 Scripture Tabbing Charts (double sided with questions for discussion on each topic) and a set of instructions.

The CTB Key can be taped/glued on the inside right page of the Bible or on the top of the Bible itself.

The additional items you will need to create your own CTB are; sticky note tabs and highlighters or colored pencils. CTB has links for the tabs and highlighters on their website.

As you place the tabs on the page of the scripture passages listed, be sure to line them up, this makes it neat and easy to follow.

I look forward to hearing your thoughts and would love to see some pictures of your CTB’s! Feel free to leave a link to yours in a your comment!

I am pleased to announce that the CTB has donated a set of their key and charts to one of y’all!

Below is a rafflecopter entry form, please take a moment, check it out and enter to win your very own set!

Thank you so much CTB for donating this to one of my readers!

    I want my girls to see that help with character issues comes straight from the Bible, not just learn what the Bible has to say from another book. I plan to use it to do studies on each of the areas listed in the CTB and also for correction. Thank you for the giveaway! I heard about it from CTB on FB. 🙂

    1. simplyhelpinghim

      It is a wonderful tool! I am so glad you stopped by to check this out! It will help encourage and teach strong faith! 🙂

  23. Amy Ritchie

    My goal: I’d love to give the give another way of learning important Biblical truths. Tyler is really good at reading now but doesn’t know where to find things in the Bible right now that can help him on a daily basis. I’ve been looking at this Bible idea since you first stated talking about it

    1. simplyhelpinghim

      I truly believe it is a wonderful tool Amy! I’m so glad you stopped by! 🙂 This is definitely something they can learn to use themselves and pick up when they feel they are struggling. My kiddos pick it up themselves sometimes! 🙂

  27. Elisabeth Schulz

    I am strongly considering homeschooling my now 4, 3, & 2 year olds when they graduate from the Christian preschool they attend. This would really help me integrate fundamental teaching into whatever homeschool curriculum we end up with. Thanks for the giveaway — fingers crossed!

    1. simplyhelpinghim

      I wish I had this option to begin schooling with! It truly is a great way to start your foundation! Thank you for stopping by! 🙂 Blessings!

  28. Emilee

    There is no Pinterest link in the rafflecopter, and the link on their website for Pinterest doesn’t work. I think I finally found the right one, though! http://pinterest.com/TrainingBible/ 🙂

    1. simplyhelpinghim

      That is the correct link 🙂 I’m so sorry! This is my first time using rafflecopter and I must have been up too late setting it up! Thank you for pointing it out! 🙂 I think I fixed it now! 🙂

  29. Emilee

    This sounds fantastic! I am also a homeschooling mom, and have the same concern – trying to find the right tool. Thank-you so much for sharing! It sounds like what I’ve been looking for as well! 🙂

    1. simplyhelpinghim

      I’m so glad that you stopped by! 🙂 It truly is a tool that I believe in! I’m so happy that I stumbled upon it! 🙂 Blessings!

  30. Kari@CountHisBlessings

    Oh, I am looking for something like this. I am going to their website right now to look at it. Thanks for sharing!

    1. simplyhelpinghim

      I’m so glad you stopped by! If you have any questions please let me know! 🙂

  31. Clancy Harrison MS, RD, LDN

    I think it would be a good start for me as I do not teach religion to them at this point.

    1. simplyhelpinghim

      It is a very good and easy system to use! I highly recommend it! 🙂 Thanks for stoppin by! 🙂

  32. Mary Beth

    Great idea to go through it slowly with them so its not just a discipline tool! We want them to love the Word of God, not fear (the bad kind) it as a tools we use to make them behave!

    Great review!
    Mary Beth

    1. simplyhelpinghim

      Absolutely! 🙂 That is for sure, I do not want them to be afraid of God and His Word. It is a tool, just like any that can be used wrongly if we are not careful! 🙂

  33. Kelley Johnsen

    I would love to get this. We are reading “Parenting with Scripture”. This week we are focusing on Anger and using those times instead of disciplining but rather teaching. It has made a huge difference in our week already. 🙂

    1. simplyhelpinghim

      I have never heard of that book before. I will have to check it out! Thank you for sharing that and for stopping by! 🙂

  34. Mindy Bowman

    This sounds cool! I don’t have any younguns of my own (they’ve all grown) but I will definitely share with other mothers I know. : ) Hopping from What I Learned This Week.

    1. simplyhelpinghim

      Thank you for sharing! It really is a cool tool! I’ll be sure to stop on by your neck of the woods too 😉

  35. Melanie Schemanski

    I have never heard of this! Def checking it out as a homeschool mama of 6. Rafflecopter isn’t working for me right now, not your fault, isn’t working anywhere I go. Will check back later to enter for sure!

    1. simplyhelpinghim

      It seems to be working now 🙂 It is awesome! Thanks for stoppin by! 🙂
