Moving From Milk to Meat

Wow, has it really been that long? When I started this blog, my kids were 8, 6 and 3. Now they are 11, 9, and 6. Time sure does fly by!

I haven’t really blogged here much because I didn’t think anyone was reading this page. But for some reason, I’ve been constantly drawn back to this blog over the years and I’ve decided to give the TKTB blog another go.

Since I’ve been away for a while, I suppose a bit of an update is in order. Honestly, not much has changed in the last 3 years. We (my husband and I) still love God, each other, and our kids. Our goal to impart Biblical knowledge in our kids lives has not changed. I will admit that as my older kids outgrew their children’s Bibles I have been very lax on dedicating specific time that is our Family Devotion Time.

But of course with the beginning of a new year comes renewed determination. Which has partly brought me back to this blog.

I love being able to go back and read this chronicle of my life and I really don’t want to leave the details of this next phase out!

In one of my resent Bible studies we were reading the book of Hebrews. The specific passage that stood out to me was Hebrews 5:12

In fact, though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you the elementary truths of God’s word all over again. You need milk, not solid food!

What a strong reprimand for many Christians today. After reading and studying our Bibles for years, we are still just reviewing and consuming the “elementary truths of God’s word all over again.”

This passage was so convicting for me in regards to my Biblical instruction with my children. I have honestly ONLY been actively teaching them the “elementary truths”. And I STRONGLY feel God calling me to move them from Milk to Meat!

My oldest is 11.  He know, believes and confesses that Jesus is the son of the True and Living God and that He died to reconcile all who believe back to the Father. He understands the Trinity and believes in the Holy Spirit.

But its time to move from belief to faith in action. Am I teaching him to yield to the Holy Spirit? Am I teaching how to treat his body as the temple of God? Am I showing him through my actions and instruction that God desires our complete and total submission to His will so that we may enjoy abundant life?

Just typing those words makes me see and feel the weight of what God has called me to do as a parent.

I hope to chronicle our journey here on this blog.

Are you moving your children from Milk to Meat? Please share with me in the comments.

Increasing in Him,

    Thank you for your blog! It is encouraging to read as I struggle to teach my kids (5, 3, 2 and 0) about the Bible and the Lord! I am glad I found your site!

    hi i just came across your blog today, you have done a lot of work!! will let you know the outcome after trying it with my 7 year old!

    at the moment he is struggling with fear, so i get him to read God has not given me a spirit of fear but of power, love and a sound mind. it is near where he eats so he can use it when he needs. he used it this morning for the first time which was great!
