Advice for Those New to Bible Study Fellowship or Are Struggling…

Hey all!

I just want to say I am so thankful you all are here to learn more about God’s word.  Your faithfulness will be rewarded both here on Earth and in Heaven.  You are making an impact because of your new knowledge!

I have heard from so many of you who are struggling so I want to offer up a suggestion:

If you are confused on what the Word is saying, try doing the kids’ lessons first.

Yep, I said it.  The kids’ lessons.

This is the first year my older kids are in the program.  I do my lesson during the week and usually on Sundays I sit down with my kids and we go over their lesson and do it (yes, I know.  They are supposed to do it daily but we do a daily Bible Study for homeschool so Sunday is our only day to hammer out BSF.  The point of daily questions is to be in the Word daily, which we all are).

So, the questions are basically adult questions but simplified.  It points out the main truths so the kids will get it.  Most are fill in the blank and multiple choice but it sure does make it easy to know what the point is!

Maybe if you are struggling with a particular day pull up the kids questions on that day and read them.  I guarantee you’ll get something out of it you probably missed.  I know I do.  I have an opportunity to study the passage AGAIN with my kids and I always get some nugget or clarification from their lesson.

Another tool available now to all via the Internet that I would utilize if I were new to the Word and struggling.
