Bible Before Books – How Things Evolve as Children Grow

Lately, because we study our Bible in the evenings as a family we haven’t been doing a set Bible time together in the mornings. I read my Bible first thing when I wake up (no words before my eyes, before HIS Word has been before my eyes) and then I ask the kids to do the same. We all sort of have our own Bible time in the mornings. Nothing wrong with that, it is just different from previous years where we always did Bible time first thing before any schoolwork.

I am still trying to decide if I should add something in together in the mornings, or just leave our study time at night and let them study on their own in the morning. After all, they are getting older and I like the idea of them getting into the habit of their own time with the Lord. This is preparation for life 🙂

However, it is something I need to make sure happens. I posted this on Instagram yesterday:

Mom-bun, my Mickey Mouse mug, and a table full of possibilities today. Waiting for the boy to read his Bible since he came to do math, and I asked him if he read it yet. He said he hadn’t. Sent him back to THE most important book before we tackle that math! Make sure you, Mom, do the same! Set your heart right before the Lord BEFORE jumping into the day. His Word is living and active and nourishes and sustains us! Be transformed by it! Don’t let it sit there while you go about your day. Seek Him first!! Who’s with me? #simplylivingforhim #transformed #seekJesus#Biblefirst #biblebasedhomeschooling
