Theological truths for a 4 year old

Here is a video clip from family worship tonight. Christopher is reciting children's catechism questions #29 thru #36. It's amazing how much truth a child can memorize. Our philosophy is that what fills their mind today will shape their hearts tomorrow. We really believe in the benefit of old-fashioned catechizing! We'll post footage of Sarah reciting the first 10 Q&A's tomorrow.

I think it's so wonderful that you are doing the catechism with the kids. I memorized both the Children's and Shorter Catechisms growing up, and I couldn't believe how many of the answers I could still recite in my head along with Christopher some 20 years later. Keep up the good work. It will stay with them forever!

Becky, your testimony is very cool! There are very few people that I know that actually learned the catechisms growing up. May your tribe increase!

I love it! (That's a good thing.) Keep it up, Christopher! We've started q.1-2 with Elijah, and his response to "who made you?" is "God-All-Things!" He just can't wait for that second question to be asked.
