This was our first year for Bible Blast. Our daughter is four and while we wanted to enroll her, we were hesitant about the time commitment. Ultimately we decided that it was hard to justify prioritizing anything above making sure she learns the Bible. I loved the program because it gave us a framework to teach the Bible, provided external accountability to make sure we were doing it, and then added the element of fun that it takes to keep her engaged. I was amazed at how much she soaked up and how excited she was. These kids are capable of remembering so much more than I gave them credit for at that age! I was also surprised at how much it taught us about parenting. This program makes as big of an investment in the parents as it does in the children.
As I look back at the experience, I realize that I did not have a plan to ensure that she learned the Bible. We brought her to church regularly, but at the end of the day, I was more or less assuming that someone else was teaching what she needed to know. Of all the things in life that we plan out, we did not have a plan for this. For that reason, I am unbelievably grateful for the investment that so many have made in developing the curriculum and facilitating the weekly events.
Thank you for your investment in our family!
