Family Bible Study

Having a family Bible study has been recently placed on my heart. I think it had a lot to do with a recent message at Church on the restoration of the Family being the key to revival. We as parents have a beautiful and most important role in teaching our children. In our home we are teaching our children values. The Pastor also spoke about Church starting in the home. So powerful those words were.

I am so excited for the present and future of it and the benefit it will have on my family. Because we are raising the next generation. They are little people who will grow into amazing adults. And I want to raise leaders. I want to have them feel loved and valued in their home. I want for them to know that the Bible is real and it shows truth. I want them to remember sitting together reading the Bible as a family and not just something that happens on Sundays at Church. Because in the end all that will really matter is that my kids know and love God. 

 "I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth."
3 John 1:4

In having family Bible Study we are also bonding and enjoying eachother's company. We are growing as a family in strength and courage. Our first study happened and it was fun! We learned Luke 6:31 "Treat others as you would want to be treated." I wrote it on this chalkboard frame I made. It's above our fireplace in our living room so it's always visible.


This was our week 2 memory verse.

We talked about what that meant. We then thought of something we could do for 5 minutes to treat others the way we want to be treated. A treat was given for the first who could find said verse in Bible.  Sure there was running and around by the 4 and 2 year old. But, we were still together as a family reading the Bible and talking. We made a promise that this would happen every week on Wednesday evenings. We enjoyed treats at the end together and prayed. It was awesome! I am so thankful for a God who is allowing this to happen. And I'm praying this will continue and strengthen us! Also, I hope this encourages someone out there!

Blessings,
