I love the Advent and Lent Bible studies we read through each and every year. I feel so close to God and my family as we snuggle on the sofa and read these stories and Scripture.
What do we do for Bible studies the rest of the year?
I’m at a loss.
I Googled and searched for studies recommended for the rest of the church year.
I guess there’s a reason the liturgy is called “Ordinary Time.”
It can be pretty disappointing and boring after Christmas and Easter Bible studies.
But God is never ordinary. He is extraordinary!
I plan to use this ordinary time to focus on Bible stories, Scripture memorization, and worldview studies.
Here are some of our family favorite Bible studies and resources.
Some great Bible reading plans:
- Read through the Bible in a year or 90 days
- YouVersion Bible app with a multitude of study options. We do this every evening before bedtime.
- PrayNow from Concordia Publishing House app
- BibleMinded from American Bible Society app
- Bible Study Plans from Bible Study Tools. I love their apps!
- Bible Studies from Bible Gateway
- Bible Studies from Ligonier
Some great Scriptures series, devotionals, and worldview curricula:
- Apologia What We Believe series – Read our review.
- I Don’t Have Enough Faith to be an Atheist book and curriculum. My teen daughter and I read through the book last year!
- Beauty in the Heart for young ladies – Read our review.
- Praying the Scriptures with His Mercy is New
- Scripture Memorization with Managing Your Blessings
- Online Bible studies from Time Warp Wife
- Monthly Scripture writing plans from Sweet Blessings. I do these daily.
- Hymn Study with Ambleside Online
- Memoria Press Christian Studies
- Hero Tales: A Family Treasury of True Stories from the Lives of Christian Heroes – 2 volumes – and this great copywork from Mama Jenn
- Studying God’s Word workbooks – 1st grade through high school levels. My kids complete a lesson daily in these easy to use workbooks.
- Seeds Family Worship CDs with printable Bible curriculum
- Songs for Saplings CDs and ABC printables
We don’t do Bible journaling or draw all over our Bibles. We read them and learn Scripture. We’re not into coloring book Bibles. The Word of God is sacred. It’s not entertainment. I have a scripture copywork and prayer journal.
And we don’t feel the need to post every little thing we do online to receive praise from other people. Our faith is private.
What do you study during this time between Advent and Lent?
