A glimpse of a great study

I wanted to share what a blessing it has been for the girls and I to be part of a Precepts study at a local church. Not only am I completely blessed each week with my study in Daniel, I am so thankful to be part of Tally's study in the book of John. Tally is the youngest child in the class full of homeschool kids and she loves going each week. Chuck and I have helped her with the homework each week and it has been such a joy to open scripture with her and be part of this process of spiritual growth.




It is fitting that we are studying the crucifixion of Christ (as Easter is soon approaching). She understands, as a result of the study, what Christ went through on the cross for us. She was grieved to the point of tears one night in how terrible He was treated. She was so eager to read the next chapter and find out what happened.

This style of study gets these little ones learning at such a young age. To study for themselves and create a habit of time with God each day. I wanted to leave you with a page of her story board drawings from John 19.

Oh! Thanks for the reminder...my daughter did one of these earlier this year and it was great. I am going to look for some more at the HS convention this weekend!!

I'm so glad these have worked out for you guys. We love them, although I must admit that the boys don't like the "coloring" parts.

We haven't tried these yet, though I have heard good things about them.

Thanks for the suggestion! I'm looking for a Bible study program for children... I'll order a sample copy.

Boys never like the "coloring parts" but I've yet to find a religion program for kids that doesn't have a LOT of it. As a teacher and Religious Ed director, I always find a bunch of more hands-on and active ways to accomplish the same thing. Works much better!

Looking foward to being apart of a Pricepts Study in CA. Thanks for the challenge. I'll have to look into the books for the boys...
