I don't want my kids growing up in front of a screen
- By almost all the standards we use to measure reading’s cognitive benefits — attention, memory, following threads, and so on — the nonliterary popular culture has been steadily growing more challenging over the past thirty years.
- Increasingly, the nonliterary popular culture is honing different mental skills that are just as important as the ones exercised by reading books.”2
But what if my kid doesn't want to be a pastor when he grows up?
Can there be a greater heartache in this life than to see your own child running full speed toward hell, and know that you were the one who outfitted him for the race? Oh, do your best while they are young and in your constant care, to win them to God and set them on the road to heaven.
And a wonderful way to set them on the road to heaven is to raise them to be intimately acquainted with the Bible, able to handle rightly and faithfully the word of truth (2 Tim 2:15). We plan to eventually develop even more resources for children to learn Hebrew besides our videos. We want to serve parents in every way possible to make this a reality.
“When I recently started learning Hebrew, I got so angry that the Holy Language was and is not taught in the so-called Christian countries like mine…. You see, over here in Uganda, Muslim children are taught basic Arabic so they can read the Koran. The Muslim religious leaders are even proficient in Arabic which gives them a better understanding of their ‘book’ and religion. The Roman Catholic priests also have a working knowledge of Latin. But sadly, we the Protestants are/were never taught our language, the language of the Holy Scriptures—Hebrew. For that reason, I believe we are not as knowledgeable as we should be concerning the word of YHWH…. Therefore, I am grateful to Aleph with Beth for freely teaching us Hebrew, and for excellently doing so. I pray that one day Hebrew will be taught in Christian countries from early childhood so that Christian children grow up reading the Bible in its original contextual language. That is why I am at 44 years doing Aleph with Beth with my 9 year old daughter, Eden.” –Moses Musinguzi
