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.

  1. The first daily, structured bible/God time I started with my son was this past December. He is 2 1/2 so I wasn’t sure how well he would do. It is still hard to understand some things that he says and his attention span is very, very short. I ordered Truth In The Tinsel and once he caught on to the daily routine he really enjoyed it, especially the Advent calendar that held a surprise each day. His attention span wasn’t the greatest when I would read the scripture to him from the Bible (I was using a regular Bible because we didn’t have access to a Children’s Bible) so everytime I came across someone’s name or a word he would recognize in the scripture I would ask him to repeat it and that helped a little. Now he will randomly bring up Jesus in conversation and he is still talking about the “surprises” that each day of Advent brought! 😀

    I plan to start this Life of Christ Reading Plan but read to him with our new Jesus Storybook Bible. I’m hopeful that this will keep his attention better than reading directly from an adult Bible. I may add in some crafts on days that God gives me some inspiration to do so because he really enjoyed the crafts when we did Truth In The Tinsel.

    I’d love to hear what other mommas are doing with their younger toddlers to gain some more insight and ideas that may work for my family. 🙂
