How often do you find yourself reading the Bible and not really getting much out of it? Are you reading it just to check that off your list? If so, I have a new study to tell you about!
I received a copy (plus one to give away) of the 12 Week Journal for Book by Book Bible Study. The way this works is that you pick 12 books of the Bible and study each one for a week. You can research the book, study the characters, figure out the author and location, pick the big themes, and pull out your favorite verses. Of course you read it too! The whole idea is that it is customizable. You are not just doing what someone tells you to do. You are studying the Bible in what ever ways work for you! Want to draw a map of the location? Go for it! Want to memorize verses? That’s great! You get to pick the way you learn best.
The book of James has always fascinated me. It is short but packed with goodness. That will be my first book to study. You can choose the books by theme, author, Old or New Testament, or even randomly. Maybe start at the beginning and work your way through the Bible, 12 weeks at a time. If you pick a longer book, just spend more than a week on it. How cool is that?
Here is a little about the author. Shalana Frisby grew up in rural southern Missouri where cows usually outnumbered people. After earning a bachelor’s of fine art degree at Harding University, she moved off to the big city and began her career as a graphic designer. Since then she’s been blessed to wear many hats in life working as the craft editor for a major publishing company, instructing college design courses, owning her own business, and creating all sorts of digital and print projects as well as earning a master’s degree in education from Drury University. Her greatest achievement though is being able to use her talents to spread the good news of Jesus through 123 Journal It Publishing bible study and homeschool books.
After working for more than 15 years in the book publishing industry, Shalana and her little family decided to start the endeavor of producing quality and thoughtful journals catering to individual, family, and church needs. Sometimes life calls for a leap of faith! That’s what 123 Journal It Publishing is for them. They have a passion to create for you the best self-guided DIY study journals that you’ve ever used. Whether you choose to study together or individually, they want you to grow in Christ. Their family at 123 Journal It Publishing encourages you to not only study God’s word, but also spread the good news of Jesus to others. They sincerely hope you use their journals as a tool for both.
There are also men’s and women’s prayer and devotional Bible studies and a 12 week journal for memorizing Bible verses. I plan on using the Bible verse study to memorize verses with my girls this summer.
Now for the fun part. Wednesday April 26, I will pick a random winner from the comments section of this post. For a chance to win a copy, tell me the fist book of the Bible you would study!
