A Simple Bible Study for Kids A Simple Bible Study for Kids Studying God’s words does not need to be complicated. One way to study scripture is by using the letters S-O-A-P. Choose a Bible verse and follow the letters through the study. I have a verse jar just in case the kids cannot pick a verse. The thing to remember is that studying God’s word is a a discipline that kids should be taught, so that when they grow up they already know how to “rightly divide the word of truth”. Walk your kids through the verse by focusing on the four letters: S=Scripture. Simply writer the Bible verse down. Younger kids may want to cut and paste the verse. O=Observation. Every verse has some truth to it, some facts. In the observation step, look at the details of the verse. This is a good place to put the verse into your own words. A=Application. God wants us to be “doers of the word”. What does this verse instruct us to do? P= Prayer. Ask the Lord to help us follow His direction. I love this way of studying scripture. I am working on teaching our boys to break open Bible verses this way. While there are many ways to “study” scripture, this is one of my favorites! I created a simple template to encourage kids to focus on observing, applying, and praying over their Bible verses for the week. I am so pleased with how much they are getting out of this exercise that I want to share the resource with you for FREE. 1. Download the Template and directions here. 2. While you are in my store, be sure to follow me. 3. Add your feedback in my store (directions are in the packet). Here is one of my boys’ devotions from today. Don’t you love the design he created along the side? I appreciate all of your love, encouragement, and support. Every time you download one of my products or make a purchase from my store you are helping me continue to “work from home”. I am so thankful!

Memory verse for kids: Exodus 14:14 My personal statement of faith: I believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God. I believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. I believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory. I believe “all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” and that we are saved by faith in Jesus.
