If you are a parent and want to teach your children the virtues from the Bible then you need to put together a Virtue Training Bible!
What is a Virtue Training Bible?
Taken from the VTB website: The Virtue Training Bible is tool that allows parents and children (and anyone that loves the Word of God) to go directly to the pages of Scripture for instruction in 42 virtues. The VTB emphasizes worship of our Triune God. The yellow tabs at the top, right provide further study of the Trinity.
The VTB was designed with John 15:4-5 in mind. " (John 15:4-5)
What is included in your VTB kit?
What else did I buy to complete the VTB?
I bought this set on Amazon for $11.99. It is not necessary for you to purchase this exact set. If you already have highlighters to use, you can use them. I made the purchase because I wanted to make sure I had the colors that were needed to match up with the key.
Post it Flags
I bought the Post It flags on Amazon for $8.78. You don't need these specific flags but they work really well since they have the colors to match the key and the highlighters. You will need to purchase two sets for the VTB.
If you purchase the Bible, highlighters and post it flags on Amazon, you will reach the required amount to receive free shipping.
I will not lie to you, the VTB takes a while to put together but it is worth every minute. It helped me to put it together myself because I was able to reacquaint myself with the verses that I would need to teach my child the virtues in the Word.
I have read the Bible through from Genesis to Revelation several times but I still needed to be reminded of these verses. By taking the time to tab and highlight them for myself, I was preparing myself for when I will teach these verses to my children.
The kit comes with instructions and there is also a video tutorial on the Virtue Training Bible Website. The explanation is very clear and easy to follow.
How does the Virtue Training Bible Work?
When you want to use the VTB to teach your children, you use the laminated cards to find the virtue you want. For example, I wanted to teach my daughter (age 8) about forgiveness. Her brother (age 3) committed an offense against her and she was upset about it. I wanted her to forgive him so I turned to the marked sections of my VTB about forgiveness. The laminated cards also come with suggested prayers for that virtue.
The makers of the VTB also created a Child Training Bible!
