Our Morning Bible Routine ~ Raising Rock Stars

Raising Rock Stars

A few weeks ago I mentioned the Hands-On Bible that I bought and started using with the kids. Since then I’ve found some other great go-along resources and we’ve started a morning routine using the Hands-On Bible and activities.

Each morning during breakfast time we read a passage from this great kids Bible using the children’s Bible reading plan found on the Hands-On Bible website {you’ll have to create a free account to access it}. There are questions to answer after each reading and I’ve been surprised at what the kids are grasping and understanding already. I know I shouldn’t be surprised, but I LOVE seeing that our kids understand the deeper meaning behind stories!

As we are reading through, we stop and complete any of the hands-on activities that are in the Bible for that passage. This past week as we read about Adam and Eve hiding from God, we stamped our fingerprints on paper and talked about how our fingerprints are on everything we touch ~ even though we can’t see them. God sees everything and already knew about their sin…but He sent Jesus and will forgive our sins!

Soon we’ll be adding in a family night and using another great resource: family devotions from the folks at Hands-On. There are 52 weeks of plans for us to use and they include activities to do together as a family and the kids can take turns helping lead the devotions.

Awana will be starting up next week too, so we’ll be back in full swing soon. :)That's it for this week! Don't forget to visit Carisa at 1+1+1=1 and visit around to some of the other Raising Rock Star posts this week!

Hands-on Bible You can learn more about the Hands-On Bible from their website and also purchase the Bible directly from Amazon. A few sample activities can be found here. We are loving this Bible and the creativity that it offers {and the fact that Mommy has a little less planning to do too!}.
