I Know Who I Am: Parents Guide

 
 
“Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” Proverbs 22:6
 
“I Know Who I Am” is not just a series of books. It is a movement to remind the children of God of their new identity in Christ. Like the Bible, “I know who I Am” is sophisticated enough for adults to feel challenged and empowered by its content; however, it’s simple enough for children to begin the journey of developing strong, godly identities. To assist them on that journey the children’s edition of “I Know Who I Am” was created. It is not meant to be used in isolation, but in conjunction with the main text. It is meant to assist parents in walking their children through the process of developing an identity in Christ so that they too can proudly proclaim, “I Know Who I Am.”
 
Here are some helpful hints:
Week One: Read the focus scripture with your children and have them explain what the focus scripture means to them while tracking their response. Maybe allow them to write the points on a chalk board or poster to be kept in their room.
Week Two: Utilizing the main text, outline for them main lessons to be drawn from the scripture. Take time to explain difficult concepts.
Week Three: Have your children read the corresponding excerpt in the children’s edition. This time they can make the connection between the short anecdotes and the lessons from the main text.
Week Four: Have your children explain how this will impact their daily lives. What will they do differently? How will they respond to problems? Why will they now respond in this new way?
