Growing Character Bible Study Journal Week 10 Abigail & Humility

growing character cover

I just added Week 10 to the Growing Character Bible Study Journal.  The character word is Humility.  The Character Study is Abigail.

I LOVE Abigail!  She was a beautiful, intelligent, wise woman, who brilliantly displayed humility.

This entire story is so fascinating.  In fact, I based my Family Connection Online Bible Study this week on this story. Check it out here.

Here’s a little teaser…

Do you know what happened to Goliath’s sword after David used it to behead him?  Did you think David got to keep it?  He didn’t!  But, later he finds it.  It was stored in a tabernacle and he gets it back!  (1 Samuel 21:9)

Please do me a huge favor and let your homeschooling friends know about this resource.  It’s near and dear to my heart!  I truly believe that our girls need to be in the Word every day!  I want them to study these awesome women of the Bible as they are growing into awesome women of God themselves!  I recommend getting a white notebook with a clear pocket on the front.  Print the cover sheet and slip in the clear cover pocket.  Fill the notebook with the weeks I’ve already finished.  Add to the notebook as new content is uploaded.  When finished, your daughter will have 47 weeks worth of Bible studies in her notebook! And hey, buy her a super cute pen to go with this!;)  You can also get creative with the bookmark.  I’m thinking a trendy ribbon hot glued on the spine (kind of like the ribbon ones found in Bibles) would be a good idea.  Let us know in the Comment section if you have other ideas.

Growing Character Bible Study Journal for girls Updated

(Since it’s Spring Break week, I’m taking a break from the Family Connection posts.  I’ll get started back up next week!)

growing character cover.jpg

I just added Week 8 to the Growing Character Devotional Journal.  In addition, I tweaked the cover just a tad.  It reads, Growing Character Bible Study Journal now.  I felt this was a more accurate title since girls are reading straight from their own Bibles and hopefully learning to study the Bible for themselves.  It’s been a pleasure studying the women of the Bible and assigning character traits that they exemplify.

Week 8 is all about Eve, the very first woman.  Did you know that her name is only mentioned 4 times in the whole Bible?  Did you know that her beauty, which must have been flawless, is never mentioned!  It was the great purpose God had for her that is included in Scripture.  And Eve was very purposeful in carrying it out! (which is the character word for Week 8) Hope your daughter will see her value in the inner person and not in outward beauty after reading all about Eve.

Blessings,

Kathy

Don’t forget, Moms, to subscribe to my blog so that we can have our own Bible Study time!  We are reading through the Gospels and as soon as my teenage son helps me figure it out, I’m adding a live Youtube feed each morning so I can give you the day’s Scripture reading and pray for you.  Hopefully next week! 🙂

Growing Character Devotional Journal for girls

Dear Moms,

I am so passionate about the resource I’m sharing with you today. I wanted my children to start 2017 with Devotional Journals and so the search began.  I found a good one for boys, which was also recommended to me by our youth pastor.  It’s Lifeway’s, The Character of God-a year of devotions for students.  But, I just couldn’t find what I was looking for in a preteen/young teen girl’s devotional book. I had some pretty specific things that I wanted to see included and some things I wanted to avoid.  First, I wanted it to include Scripture! I did not want a devotional style book with short stories.  I wanted my daughter to be challenged to think about what she was reading and how to apply it to her life.

After having written a number of Bible Studies for Preteens, this project seemed to be a good progression of that series.  I was able to tailor-make this journal to include the things I had in mind for a study.

The Growing Character Devotional Journal will be tool for preteen/teen girls to use that will have them in the Word and studying Godly character traits that could shape their developing personalities.  I’m so passionate about this resource and I pray that God will “multiply the seed sown and increase the fruits of your righteousness.” (2 Cor. 9:10)

Please join me in praying that God would use this resource to bring liberality and set up a love for God and His Word by all the young girls who use it.  Pray that God would be glorified; that it would cause thanksgiving to Him; and that His name be praised as a result.

You can sample all of Week 1 below.  To order, click here.

Product Description:

Growing Character Devotional Journal for Girls is a GROWING BUNDLE. That means that I will continue to add to it.  You purchase it once and will be notified when new content is added.  You will be able to download the the new additions, at no additional cost.

As more content is added, the price will increase.  So you will want to purchase this  bundle as early as possible.

WHY A GROWING BUNDLE?

I’ve decided to offer this product as a Growing Bundle for a couple of reasons.

Reason #1 – This is an extensive project and I want to take my time.  I am creating this product for my own daughter and with yours in mind, so I’m meticulously pouring over it.  I don’t want to rush to publish it all at once at the risk of sacrificing quality.

Reason #2 – This journal will be a devotional that your child can use for the entire year and I’d like for our girls to be able to begin in January, which is soon approaching.

You will need to purchase a Notebook for your daughter.  Print the cover sheet (included) and slip it into the clear sleeve on the front of the notebook. Print Week 1 (included) and add it to the notebook. You’re all set to begin the first week of January.  I will upload the preceding weeks as I have them ready.  You will receive a notification via email from Currclick.  You can print and add new content to your daughter’s notebook as it becomes available.

WHY A DEVOTIONAL JOURNAL?

I wanted a daily devotional book for my children, and so the search began.  I was able to find a good one for teen boys, and you can read about that recommendation on my blog.  But, I just couldn’t find what I was looking for in a preteen/young teen girl’s devotional book.

I had some pretty specific things that I wanted to see included and some things I wanted to avoid.  First, I wanted it to include Scripture! I did not want a devotional style book with short stories.  I wanted my daughter to be challenged to think about what she was reading and how to apply it to her life.

After having written a number of Bible Studies for Preteens, this project seemed to be a good progression of that series.  I was able to tailor make this journal to include the things I had in mind for a study.

WHY A CHARACTER STUDY?

The preteen/young teen age can be challenging.  Girls this age are exploring who they are and developing their individuality and personality.  It’s the perfect time to work on identity and character building.

In addition to studying a character trait, your child will be studying a character in the Bible who exemplified that trait.

HOW IS EACH DEVOTIONAL SET UP?

There is a Weekly Sheet with the Character Word and definition that will be the focus of the week.  There is a place to write the weekly Memory Verse.  This sheet also includes a place for writing down prayer needs for family and friends as well as praises.  Following this sheet are 5 daily sheets – for Monday through Friday.  Each daily sheet includes 4 sections:  Plant it (Introduction), Water it (Bible Study), Watch it Grow (Application), and Memory Verse practice.

Character Traits that you will see in upcoming weeks include…

Worthiness – Mary Magdalene

Loyalty – Ruth

Courage – Esther

Perseverance – Hannah

Generosity – Mary (Lazarus’ sister)

Kindness – Rebekah

Humility – Mary (Jesus’ mother)

Self-Control

Hospitality

There will be 47 character traits studied this year – one for each week of the year, excluding spring break, fall break, Thanksgiving week and Christmas break.

Brand New Bible Study for Preteens – Nehemiah

Good morning readers!

This study has been on my heart for a long time.  God first led me to this book of the Bible about a year ago.  Since then, I’ve studied it on my own, read through it with my children, completed a women’s Bible Study on Nehemiah (A Heart that Can Break by Kelly Minter), and have poured back over the contents of this book as I’ve written this study.  My prayer is that it will be used of the Lord in ways I can’t even ask or imagine (Ephesians 3:20) for His glory.

The purpose of the Bible Studies for Preteens series is to get kids into the Word.  Often, kids this age read devotions or listen to youth leaders speak, but don’t take time to read Scripture for themselves.  As parents, we have a great opportunity to fill our children’s days with good things.  Truly there could be no greater thing than pouring over God’s Word and realizing it is active and speaks directly to each person.

The other day, we drove my friend’s daughter to her soccer game.  All told, we spend 2 1/2 hours either driving to, sitting at, or riding home from the game.  I’m sure there are other games or practices throughout the week.  While these are good things with many benefits, I wondered how many of our children spend anywhere near that time on the really good, eternal things of God.

With so many adult Bible Studies, I thought it high time we had more Bible Study choices for our kids!

BTW…I may record some free video sessions to go along with this study, so be sure to visit this blog, so you’ll be the first to know when those are available and about all upcoming events.

For His glory,

Kathy 🙂
