Scriptures to encourage your children …

While there are many quotes and good things we can say to inspire and reassure children, there’s nothing better than sharing God’s Word with them.

So, here are twenty Scriptures to encourage your children (below). Use them to point your children to Jesus throughout the day. And think of creative ways to share them. Write one on a Post-it note and stick it on the bathroom mirror. Include one in a lunch box, make a card, or send one as a text if you have older children.
