I ran across a Catechism for Young Children (An Introduction to the Shorter Catechism) online the other day and I'm just loving it! Honestly, I haven't read through the whole thing to endorse it, but I love the first page so far! These sort of short, simple questions are fantastic, because they don't have to be taught in a formal, rigorous setting, but can be taught interspersed throughout the day....ask a question while your child is getting dressed, introduce a new question during dinner, etc.
Here are the first few question, so far Tim has taught Trevor the first three...
Q1 - Who made you?
A - God.
Q2 - What else did God make?
A - God made all things.
Q3 - Why did God make you and all things?
A - For his own glory.
Q4 - How can you glorify God?
A - By loving him and doing what he commands.
Q5 - Why ought you glorify God?
A - Because he made me and takes care of me.
Q6 - Are there more gods than one?
A - There is only one God.
Q7 - In how many persons does this one God exist?
A - In three persons.
Q8 - What are they?
A - The Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost.
I love this because it is conversational and it's simple enough for a small child to remember and even understand some of it =) I also want to start some Scripture memorization soon, but haven't thought too hard about it. Does anyone have anything they've done and enjoyed with their little kids?
