A Bible Reading Plan for Little Ones {Minding our Mouths}

It's that time again- a new month is upon us, so I've got a new Bible reading plan for you to print and share with your family. This month we are focusing on our mouths and the words that they speak. I've culled 20 short passages from the Old and New Testaments {some are only a verse or two}, all about our mouths- what they are for and aren't for, how we can use them to glorify God, and how God helps us with this task.

These short readings are perfect for family worship time with small children {mine are 4, 2, and 6 months}. We like to read them over meals- keeping little hands and mouths busy so that it is easier for them to listen.


Some of the principles to focus on and discuss with your kids as you read include:

  • God made our mouths, and He can help us to use them rightly!
  • Our speech can and should glorify God
  • Our words come from our hearts, so change in speech begins with change in heart
  • Words can hurt
  • Words can help
  • Be slow to speak, and don't talk too much

If you use one of my plans with your family, I'd love to hear what you thought of it! Preparing these plans takes a good chunk of time each month, and I'm really wanting to improve their quality. I want them to be as user-friendly and as much of a blessing as possible! Shoot me an email at thepurposefulwife@gmail.com. Or a comment is fine too.

If you like this plan, I think you would like my new ebook! It's called Read the Bible to Your Kids: A Year of Simple Plans to get into the Word Together

It's a great, simple solution for families who want to build Word-centered solutions. You can find out what people are saying about it, the topics the plans cover, and download your copy for only $4.99 right here.
