With the state that our world is in, it is more important than ever that our children have a strong foundation in the Bible and its teachings. While there are books and videos that help teach our children the stories in the Bible, there are not very many resources that help them grow closer to God on a deeper level.
One place that I turn to when I am looking for a great Bible study for kids is Not Consumed. Kim's motto is, “change their Hearts change their Lives” and her studies do just that! She takes complicated issues and makes them easy to discuss with your kids.
Kids Bible Studies
Most of her studies are available in two levels. The Junior level is for younger students and those who may have a difficult time with writing. In this level your student completes a lot of drawings to show understanding of the concepts. The Youth level is for the older student and requires more writing. The best part is that both levels cover the same materials so your older and younger students can learn together on a level that is right for them.
Another thing I appreciate about the Bible studies from Not Consumed is the fact that you can use whichever Bible version your family chooses. Throughout each study your child turns to the Bible to see what it has to say about different topics. Your student will be able to complete the study using the version that they are use to.
There are currently four different Kids Bible studies available from Not Consumed.
Developing Quiet Time: A Biblical Study for Kids
We all need quiet time with God, but getting into a daily habit of quiet time isn't always easy. This study is designed to help kids develop daily quiet time with God and grow in their faith. It is a four week study written for kids 8 and up.
A Content Heart: Finding Godly Contentment in a Me-First World
Being content is a hard topic for kids (and often adults) on a daily basis, but it is even harder throughout the holidays. This study has 22 lessons. As your child works through the study they learn what the Bible says about contentment and how they can apply what they learned to their life. It is available in both the junior and youth versions.
Because I Said So: A Biblical Study of Obedience
We know that kids need to obey, but sometimes they need a little reminder. This study takes your kids through the Bible showing them times different characters did and didn't obey God and the consequences. They learn why obedience is important and what God has to say about how we should obey. This study will last about three or four weeks and is available in both the junior and youth versions.
My Brother's Keeper: Sibling Bible Study
Sibling rivalry is one of the hardest parts of raising kids. This is a four week study will show your kids the relationships of different siblings in the Bible. The kids are forced to see how God wants them to treat their family. This study is available in both the junior and youth levels. You can see my full review of this study here.
If you have a child who is struggling in one of the areas mentioned above, or if you are looking for a Bible study to help you child learn about the Bible on a deeper level, I highly recommend these studies.
