Last week my friends, Luke and Trisha over at Intoxicated for Life, introduced their new Life of Christ reading plan. This reading plan is a great way to start the new year with your kids. It is designed to take you through the Life of Christ chronologically from the first week of the year and ending on Good Friday. The plan is a 5-day-a-week reading plan, so that you have some leeway and cushion should you find yourself needing some make-up days.
I was immediately drawn to this new Family reading plan for several reasons. First, this year I want to be intentional and purposeful in helping our children set aside time to read, and/or listen to me read, their Bible’s. Second, I wanted a plan that our oldest, who reads on his own, could follow. Third, I took a class in college that took us through the Life of Christ chronologically. While I only took one semester of this 4 semester class, I thoroughly enjoyed going through chronologically – it’s just the way my brain thinks.
Then, I remembered the outline we had to memorize during the semester and thought it would be a perfect compliment to this reading plan. So, I got busy and typed it up and now I’m offering it to you for FREE!!!!
How to use the outline
There is no right or wrong way to use this outline. It is very versatile and conducive to any learning style. But here are a few suggestions.
- Read through the outline (or parts of the outline) each day, having your children recite it back to you.
- Use the outline as a study tool to help older children memorize the chronological order of Christ’s life through the Scriptures.
- Use it as a tool for the entire family to learn and memorize where events in the Life of Christ fall in the Gospels.
- Use it as a test. I have divided the outline into 4 parts to make it easier to to learn and memorize. Use these tests throughout the reading plan to help solidify the events of Christ’s life as your family reads through the plan.
