I have been looking for a bible study to do with my kids for years. I haven’t found one that fit exactly what I was looking for… so I created my own. And I’m going to share it with you, for free!
I will admit that I haven’t been great about having my kids read the Bible. They choose to do it in their own time (which I love), but it isn’t consistent and they haven’t been getting the Word in their lives like I have always hoped for. They have had memory verses, and we have read storybook Bibles, but not real Bible reading together. I knew this needed to change.
Here’s a video to see my Bible Study Journaling Plan! Don’t like videos? No worries, just keep reading.
A Year Long Bible Reading Plan
The first thing I wanted to incorporate into my Bible study was a year long reading plan, but one that fit my own needs. Weekends are hard for us to sit down and have quiet time, so I split the reading to have five longer days and two shorter days. This leaves the weekends to have shorter readings together, so they’ll actually get done.
I really love the idea of having a year long plan. I have read a one year Bible in the past and it was so encouraging to know that I was going to be reading the FULL Word, from beginning to end, in just a year. I really like full, in depth studies where you take your time to soak up a book of the Bible, but something about reading all of it in one year brings me such joy. There’s so many books and chapters that aren’t read as much or as popular, but they’re in there for a reason. This forces me to read them, and I’m so thankful.
Taking notes during your Bible study…for all ages
Something else I wanted to add to this Bible Study Journaling Plan was note taking. But, I also wanted to be able to include the entire family. I made four different versions of the bible study notes based on age. I have one options for moms, one for young kids who can’t write yet, one for older kids who can write, and a “blank” copy, that could fit well for a teen who doesn’t want any pictures, or even for dad to join along.
Beautiful journaling pages
I know that Bible journaling is all over right now and I LOVE it. I’m not an artist myself (at least not in the art of drawing), but I get so much joy out of seeing the beauty that people create in the Bible journals! I have created weekly verses to color in two options- a script for mom, and print for kids. There is plenty of room to go above and beyond the words on the page and draw to your hearts content to make the most gorgeous journaling pages.
Custom covers to make your bible study journals complete
I have created three covers for you to choose from for your bible study journals. There is one for mom, one for kids, and a blank option that can be left black and white or colored in. I put our complete Bible Study Journaling Plans in these clear report covers so that our beautiful cover pages would still show through, but our pages could easily stay together and be protected.
New themes released every month
Every month I will release a new Bible study journaling plan. It will come complete with covers, bible reading plans, note pages, and journaling pages.
