Catechism...Anna Kate style!

Sometime around Anna Kate's first birthday, we thought it was time to start introducing her to what we know and believe about God, so we started with the first question of the Westminster shorter catechism for young children (which you can find here, if you are interested). The first question is quite simple: "Who made you?" The answer is simply, "God". She was able to pretty quickly get that one down, but only in the last week or so have we made much progress on the next two questions...and now she is a pro! Here's a little video of what she has learned so far.

What a huge blessing, and such a great responsibility, it is to teach and train our children in the way that they should go. Even though she is still very young and doesn't fully understand the implications of those three questions, it is our prayer that what she learns by repetition will one day resonate in her heart and she will desire to become a child of God!
