I know, two posts in like four hours...Record breaking for me! I am posting now to ask for your help! I even turned the comments back on for this one!
In a moment of either brilliance or insanity (that remains to be seen) I got the inspiration to write a Bible Study for my kids for our homeschool. Since we began this journey seven years ago, I have never felt I had quite the right study for my kids. I want to do our study together, at least to some extent, but also want to begin encouraging my oldest two to begin studying on their own and learning to set aside time for their own quiet time. I have never been able to find something that worked for all ages and was flexible enough for me.
I have really been praying about this and thinking about what to do and last night, this came to me. I love the format of my Wednesday night ladies Bible Study and it lends itself to both independent as well as group study and discussion, however, it is a little too deep for my younger kids. So, I decided to try my hand at doing my own. I have decided for the first quarter to do a study of the fruits of the spirit focusing on one each week. In my head, I know the format I want to use and I have some ideas. So this is where you come in.
I would love to know what stories in the Bible most demonstrate love to you and also what specific verse or verses best turn your heart toward a loving spirit or attitude. We have routinely memorized a verse of scripture each week or so, but I would like to offer some choices this year as well as look at each fruit from four or five different stories each week. Of course, I will be incorporating the ultimate story of love which is Christ's death but would love to hear what stories make you think of love.
Thanks for helping me out and feel free to send others here. For once, I am not trying to boost my ego through comments or trying to increase my readership, but I really feel passionate about this and would love some feedback!
Thanks in advance. I love ya'll!
