I've been reading Honey for a Child's Heart and Honey for a Teen's Heart, both by Gladys Hunt. Both of these books are about the importance of reading to your children and WITH your children. Reading together as a family creates a unique experience and precious memories. I recommend them both! But there was one particular passage that has been sticking with me, and that concerns the words we speak and hear and read.

There is so much we could say about words and speech and language, but I'd like to camp out on the words that we consume, that we invite into our lives and hearts and homes. As a lover of reading, I have chosen to surround our home with good books. I don't think I could ever truly have too many books (my husband may disagree!). But the issue here is "good" books. I want books that we can not only read together and think together over and discuss as pieces of literature, but that we can also filter Scripture Word through our reading. Literature is a great way to apply Truth and Grace and Obedience and begin to practice how all of "life must be seen through the framework of revealed Truth". Learning to read is about learning to think and learning to think Biblically.
