A Vision for Family Bible Study

For my thirtieth birthday, my husband took me to see the Celtic Woman perform at a live concert. This event re-awakened a desire that I have had since childhood – to learn to play the violin.

The next year, I purchased a used violin off of Craigslist and a beginner’s violin book. I had never even handled a violin before, but I really wanted to learn how to play.

I knew that it would be rough going – I mean, who picks up the violin as an adult? People told me that I was too old to learn. I didn’t have money for lessons. I squeaked and squawked. I sounded awful!

A Super-Simple Family Bible Study Plan for Busy Families

We have all heard it said over and over again: “If you don’t have a plan, you will fail.”

This certainly holds true for family Bible study!

My husband and I are committed to studying the Bible with our kids. In fact, it’s not hard for us to be consistent with family Bible study when we have a good devotional or Bible study resource that we are working through. But, when we finish one book and don’t have another one to jump into, we quickly get… stuck. Sidetracked. Unsure of what to do next.

Days, weeks, even months can go by while we flounder with family Bible study – simply because we lack a plan.

But, thanks to The Bible Study Toolkit from Faith Along the Way, I now have a family Bible study plan for my own family – for those difficult, “in between” times.

Thankful Meditations

It’s November. And, November means … Thanksgiving.

I love Thanksgiving – the history, the meaning, the time to slow down and truly thank God for His many blessings.

Unfortunately, Thanksgiving is all too easily swallowed up in our fast-paced lives.

Do you long to pause and give God the worship and thanks He so richly deserves? This Thankful Meditations Bible Study Pack will help you do just that!

Thanksgiving is quickly becoming nothing more than “turkey day”, a day to watch football, or a day to get a head start on our Black Friday shopping.

This year, more than ever, I want it to be different.

To the Family that Has NO TIME for Family Devotions

Do you feel like you have no time for family devotions? 

On a recent survey, many of you told me that your biggest struggle with family devotions is a lack of time.

Believe me, I totally get this!

Our schedules are so packed that we often feel like we don’t have time to breathe. When we do get an extra 10 minutes in our day, we either collapse in a semi-comatose state watching T.V. or scrolling through facebook, or we put it into hyper-drive and try to get a little more work done.
