Faith Building and Your Tween – Weave Your Word in Me Review

Faith Building and Your Tween – Weave Your Word in Me Review

As we are entering the tween years, it is becoming very clear to me that there are so many issues that need to be discussed as they begin to question, understand and yearn for answers. Some of them are easier than others, but they are there and we need to lead the way.

Digging deeper into our faith is one of the many ways we can lead our children, especially tweens into a better relationship with God. So I was excited to have the opportunity to review Weave Your Word in Me — Part 1 by Kid Niche Christian Books with my tween daughter.

What is Weave Your Word in Me

*******
Weave Your Word in Me is a bible curriculum made especially for tweens (those sweet girls in 4th -6th grade). The study has 2 units with 36 lessons for you to work through with your daughter, classroom, prayer group, really any Christian setting.

The first unit focuses on God the Father and the second unit on God the Son. Each lesson has bible readings and questions to help your tween understand the readings more deeply. Weave Your Word in Me works with many translations of the bible as well, KJV, ESV, NKJV, NIV, NASB, NABRE. Each lesson also includes a prayer guide and an answer key.

How we Used Weave Your Word in Me

My daughter and I worked through a lesson 4-days a week. After our normal religion lesson we would work on Weave Your Word in Me for 30 or so minutes. We talked about what we read and we discussed the questions together. We even had a few chances to dig deeper into the Catholic Church’s teachings on certain issues.

Our Impression

 

After using the  Weave Your Word in Me bible curriculum for a few weeks I found it easy to lead and be led to dig deeper into God’s word, while also taking it a step further to make it fit more into our Catholic faith.

I did not think it was leaning too much to any particular faith base, but I did find multiple opportunities to read and understand how the Catholic Church differs from other faiths, such as in baptism and reconciliation.

The background information was very well written and made the lesson easier to understand. Sunshine, especially enjoyed the timeline of Jesus’ death and Resurrection. It made it more clear to her the events of those few days and that clicked for her understanding as well.

 

I was disappointed that it was just a ream of paper 3-hole punched. I put it in a binder, but I felt it would have been nicer if it had been coil bound or bound in some other way. The binder took away from the beauty of the book itself.

The illustrations were beautiful, however, there were a few that bordered on frightening. We did not use the workbook as a workbook, instead we choose to discuss and work together through the questions and activities. My daughter is not a sit down and write an answer type of girl, discussions work much better for her understanding, but this was easy to adjust for our needs.

Overall, I would recommend it to parents of tweens who want to work to guide their daughters and sons into a better understanding of God’s word and hopes for us all.

I have a very independent toddler. One that wants to do everything her big sister and brother are doing. So it is nice to have items that help her do these things properly and safely. This is why I was excited to review The 3 Step Pencil Grip Training Kit and The Ultra Safe Safety Scissors from The Pencil Grip, Inc..

Audio Adventure’s Done Right – Captain Bayley’s Heir Review

Long drives. Quiet time. Just because. These are only a few times we use audio books. Sometimes, even a classic book, can be easier to understand when read via audio book.

Heirloom Audio Productions - Captain Baileys Heir - review - Modern Momma Musings

In addition to books, you can use podcasts and audio adventures. Our favorite line of audio adventures is definitely the Heirloom Audio Productions adventures. We have enjoyed many of them already (you can read our reviews here) and we just had the opportunity to listen to their newest addition Captain Bayley’s Heir.

Bringing Life to the Bible with a Book – Imagine. . .The Great Flood by Matt Koceich Review

Bringing Life to the Bible with a Book –  Imagine. . .The Great Flood by Matt Koceich Review

As a Charlotte Mason homeschooler, I have seen first hand the way a book can take my children to another world. There is nothing like getting lost in a book and if it has a connection to history or the bible that makes it even sweeter. Barbour Publishing has taken the bible and created a new series that takes your children on an adventure.

Looking Closer at the Great Inventors with the A Journey Through Learning – Review

Looking Closer at the Great Inventors with the A Journey Through Learning – Review

We’ve been taking learning a step further with lapbooks lately. It’s been a good way for my older two kiddos (8 and 7) to learn to do research and find the facts. While lapbooking is not a normal thing for our Charlotte Mason environment, I don’t mind adding in a bit of research when they are having fun doing it as well. We had the opportunity to use the The Greatest Inventors lapbook from A Journey Through Learning Lapbooks and it was a great chance to dig a little deeper into those great inventors from history.

Family Chores – Everyday Homemaking Review

Family Chores – Everyday Homemaking Review

We have a very active family. Between homeschooling, gymnastics, baseball and all of the other activities mixed in, we seem to be constantly busy. If cleaning the house was a chore only I could do, our house would be perpetually dirty. There are just not enough hours in the day.

Everyday Homemaking - Modern Momma Musings

We’ve changed the chore schedule many times to try and get a good fit and I think this may be continually changing as we grow in duties and expectations. I am always looking for a better way or a different idea and Everyday Homemaking has published a book,The Everyday Family Chore System, that may be just what we needed to jump start the fall.

Enjoying Another Great Audio Production – Heirloom Audio Productions Review

Audio books and stories are a hit or miss. Many times we start an audio book only to realize the reader is not wonderful and we end up abandoning the audiobook. I’ve learned to do a bit of research before just choosing any audiobook. One company we love to listen to is Heirloom Audio Productions. We’ve listened to many of their audiobooks so the kids and I were excited to listen to their newest addition In the Reign of Terror.
