I always get super excited for Lent and Advent because it’s SO EASY to study the Bible with a plethora of choices during those times of the year.
It’s often difficult to find good Bible studies during the summer months when schedules so often go out the window.
The kids took a break from their Bible workbooks for the summer.
Summer is for slowing down and enjoying the outdoors, re-evaluating our homeschool and family priorities, having lazy late suppers and staying up late with the sunshine.
Churches often put Sunday school on hold since so many people are traveling and attendance is down and it saves on costs of materials.
But that doesn’t mean we don’t read or study any Bible at all.
Our summer Bible studies:
Each morning, the younger three kids read a chapter or section in Sword Fighting, What the Bible is All About, and Window on the World. These are their choices.
My middle girls are continuing with the History Lives series, reading Courage and Conviction.
I’ve been writing through scripture with FREE monthly plans from Sweet Blessings.
My teen and I just finished I Don’t Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist and now we read a section of Manual of Christian Doctrine each day.
Every evening, we use the Pray Now app and read scripture, writings of church fathers, and a section from The Book of Concord. I like the format. My grandmother was Lutheran, but we don’t really adhere to a denomination.
We also have a morning basket with lots of resources on missionaries, martyrs, prayer, memorization, and different Bibles. We utilize these most mornings.
Other fun Bible studies we’ve done in our homeschool:
- Grapevine Bible Studies
- Apologia What We Believe series
Lots of good studies here. I love doing Proverbs 31 Online Bible Studies. We did The Husband Project this summer and there were over 40,000 women blessing their husbands in this one.

Sounds like a good plan to keep then learning through the summer. Thanks for sharing at the Over the Moon Link Party.
I just started a plan at She reads truth. It’s wonderful. I will check out other links you mentioned. Thanks!
I love the studies I did from The Time Warp Wife in the past. You are the first person to share how I feel about Bible Journaling. I have many friends who keep telling me I should start it, but I just can’t. Thanks for sharing with Thankful Thursdays.
Those sound like great ideas. When we homeschooled we always read the Bible together along with books telling about the lives of Christians – early and more current. I’ve been trying to participate with a Bible study group on facebook. It’s so important to keep in the Word. Blessings to you and thanks for sharing at #LMMLinkup!
