Lately, my husband and I have been working with our children to help them study the Bible. We have family Bible time each day where we read Scripture and pray. Most recently the kids have been working to memorize the Beatitudes (Matthew 5: 3-12) together. My husband has worked with them for several weeks on these verses and I am amazed at how much they continue to remember.
Now he only has to start the first part of each sentence and they can recite the rest. But while this is all good and something I definitely want for my children, I also want them to know Jesus. I want them to know more than just the words on the page, but the meaning behind them. So as they grow and mature, we encourage them to do more than just memorize, but really study God’s Word.
Don’t miss the giveaway at the end of this post! Hurry…it ends Sunday, October 20, 2019.
That’s what I like about this reading plan. It is open to allow your children to use it at multiple ages. They can use it while they read the Bible with you, then by themselves. As they mature, they can use the journaling pages to encourage them to write their thoughts, what God is teaching them and much more.
A while back I released a Mom’s Bible Reading Plan that was very popular. I am so happy you all have loved the reading plan and I pray it is helping and encouraging you to get in to God’s Word daily. Since the reading plan was such a hit, I decided we needed a set for kids as well. Now I have created a boys and girls version of the reading plan that you can use with kids of all ages.
These Bible Reading Plans for Kids are exactly like the Mom’s Bible Reading Plan, in that it is flexible. This is the plan we follow and teach our oldest to use. He reads the Proverbs of the day, that corresponds to day of the month. On months with less than 31 days, he double up to make it fit, so that he reads the entire book every month. Then, he reads at least one chapter in the Old Testament and one in the New Testament.
But, don’t let those boundaries restrict them. Teach them to hear God’s voice and leading, so that if they feel God leading to read more…they read more! The point is to read with an open heart and mind, so that they can learn to hear God speaking through His Word.
Included in this pack:
- Proverbs Monthly Reading Log
- Old Testament Reading Log
- New Testament Reading Log
- Blank Journaling pages to write whatever the Lord gives you
I love being able to write what the Lord brings to mind and see where the dots connect. It is amazing to see just how interconnected His Word really is! I have included the blank journaling pages to allow kids to write freely. This may be a pray that comes to mind after their reading or reflections on what they read or maybe something God showed or taught them during their reading. It can also be a place where they write down Scriptures they begin to see connect, so they can reference them as they continue reading.
