Teaching Scripture to Children Video Course with the St. Paul Center

I’m excited to share with you a little project I worked on last summer- at the invitation of The St. Paul Center for Biblical Theology, I wrote an 8 part series about sharing the Bible with kids, and then we filmed it! (Emmaus Road Publishing, where my books Through the Year with Jesus and Through the Year with Mary came from, is under the umbrella of the St. Paul Center).

The study is intended to help parents and teachers feel equipped and inspired to read Sacred Scripture together with their children and students. Episodes include ideas for using the Bible through the Liturgical Year, in connection to the Mass, while praying the Rosary, with journaling and art, through the highs and lows of life, and more.

You know how much I like to share resources, so each talk also has corresponding handouts to help guide the grownups and printables for the kids. Over twenty pdfs are ready for you to download and use!

You can access all of it through the Emmaus Academy platform, a brand new resource from The St. Paul Center with courses from Dr. Scott Hahn, Dr. John Bergsma, Fr. Boniface Hicks, and more.

Here’s the official course description:

“The Bible is wise and powerful and holy, but it is not meant to be reserved for only the wisest scholars, most powerful leaders, or holiest saints. Sacred Scripture is a love letter from our Heavenly Father for each one of us—adult and child alike. Although the Bible can be lengthy and complex, it is still intended to be approached by even the youngest Catholics. With a little preparation and some helpful tools, parents and grandparents, as well as catechists and teachers, can help children encounter the Word of God in prayer and study. Discover how to open the Bible with kids of all ages to pray with Lectio Divina and Visio Divina, meditate on the mysteries of the Rosary, bring the Sunday Mass Readings into your week, celebrate the liturgical year, and support the highs and lows of daily life. Learning how to pray with Scripture alongside your children is a gift that can last generations.”

You can click here to give the Academy a try with a 14 day free trial. Watch my Teaching Scripture to Children course, but make sure you check out all of the other resources which are being added to each month.
