Reading the Psalms with kids encourages theological creativity. The Psalms name and describe The Divine in several ways. For example, the authors offer names such as Maker, Shepherd, Strength, Savior, shield, mother, hiding place, exceeding joy, guide, and many more. Consequently, children can learn to think beyond the language often codified in faith education. For even more, check out this feminine reading of the Psalms.
