One of the first things I whispered into each of my children’s little ears after meeting them for the first time was the promise that I would teach them everything I know about Jesus.
As my children have gotten older, we’ve started doing more family devotions, and now it’s time to begin…
Training my children in how to study the Bible for themselves.
I’m nearly in tears thinking about where we’ve been, and how quickly we’ve arrived at this new season of parenting.
Anyone else get emotional about the privilege it is to share Jesus with their children?
What a privilege it is to tell our children about Jesus!
But what an even greater privilege to guide them in cultivating the skills needed to study the Bible for themselves!
I am excited for this new season of parenting!
One of the main reasons I want my children to learn to read (and read well!) is so they can read God’s Word for themselves.
When my oldest learned to read proficiently, we gifted him with his very own “big kid Bible.”
We chose an ESV Trutone Thinline Bible with a lion on the cover. This Bible is his most treasured possession.
My second son is eagerly working at his reading lessons now, so he can receive his very own “big kid Bible” too.
A few years ago I came across this Free Bible Reading Plan for Kids on the Miracles of Jesus.
My son absolutely loved doing this simple Bible reading plan for kids.
As I was preparing for this Christmas season, I wanted a simple Bible reading plan that he could read in 5-10 minutes a day similar to the one he did on the Miracles of Jesus.
Sam has a pretty good idea about the Christmas story from our years of doing Truth in the Tinsel together. He’s nearly eight, and he’s reading well above his grade level. Therefore, I wanted him to be able to read the nativity story in his Bible during his own Bible reading time.
However, as I searched for Christmas Bible reading plans for kids online, I couldn’t find one that fit what I was looking for.
Everything I found required me to read through the plan with him and dialogue through it.
Or it had a craft to go with it.
Since I couldn’t find what I was looking for, I made my own Christmas Bible Reading Plan for Kids!
Free Christmas Bible Reading Plan for Kids (Ages 8-12 years old)
And in true to the fashion of Intentional By Grace, I’m going to give it to you for free so your children can use it too if they want. 🙂
This 14-Day Christmas Bible reading plan for kids includes a one-page overview of the scriptures covered in this plan.
This one-page overview also has boxes your child can use to check off his or her progress each day.
Then, for each day’s reading there is a study guide included for your child to complete.
The study guide is not difficult to complete.
Each day your child will be prompted to think about what he or she read and respond in some way.
Included in the Christmas Bible Reading Plan for Kids:
- Comprehension questions,
- Drawing ideas,
- Journaling opportunities,
- Prompts for sharing Jesus with others,
- and more!
My son started this Christmas Bible reading plan a couple of weeks before Christmas last year.
When I asked him what he thought, he said, “I love it! It’s so much better than just reading a page from my devotional book.”
There you go!
This makes this Bible study Mama proud! 🙂
But I think it also proves that just as we thirst for the living Word, our children do too.
