Welcome!

Welcome to Words for the Heart, a blog/site dedicated to compiling useful resources and links for teaching some of the Bible’s most well-loved stories.  This site is aimed at helping everyday Christians teach their children and the children of their congregation the stories that matter to our faith – in the classroom, in worship, and at home.  Check back often as more stories are added, and feel free to list other useful resources or thoughts in the comments.  What have you done?  Why do these stories matter to you?  Hopefully, as we think together about how to pass on these rich stories of God’s work with God’s people, we will also find our hearts and minds transformed.

The title of this blog comes, loosely, from Deuteronomy 6:6-7  “Keep these words that I am commanding you today in your heart.  Recite them to you children and talk about them when you are at home and when you are away, when you lie down and when you rise.”
