For the last several years, I have been reading the Bible through each year. I’ve used several different plans, and there are elements of each that I’ve really enjoyed. But a few years ago I wanted to do something different. I like the idea of reading each book through so that you get a good feel for the flow of the book. But I really don’t like to wait until the last third of the year to read the New Testament. I love reading the Wisdom Literature, but I think I appreciate them more in smaller portions.
After looking through the various Bible reading plans available, I decided to create my own. My plan alternates between Old Testament and New Testament books, but completes one book at a time. On the weekends, my plan has readings from the Psalms on Saturdays and a chapter from Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, or Song of Songs on Sundays. Enjoy and happy reading!
Theology Gals has published two Bible Study Journals to use with your daily Bible reading. The first has a version of my Bible reading plan included in the journal: Bible Study Journal. The second has journal pages for you to take notes, to write out memory verses, or to keep track of questions for further study. Prayer list pages alternate with the journal pages: Bible Study and Prayer Journal.
Coleen and I are excited to announce the new Theology Gals journals. These sermon notebooks, memory workbooks, and Bible study journals are now available through Amazon.
We’ve put together three sermon notebooks to use during Sunday worship. The first is for younger children. The Younger Children’s Sermon Notebook for Kids has fun and engaging journal pages designed to help your children focus and remember key details. Also included are pages for coloring or drawing. Perfect for children as they learn to read and write.
For older kids, we have the Sermon Notebook for Kids: Older Children. The Older Children’s Sermon Notebook for Kids has fun and engaging journal pages designed to help your children focus and remember key details. Also included are pages for addtional note taking. Perfect for older children as they learn to take notes.
We also have a sermon notebook for teens and adults. This 52-week Sermon Notebook provides you with two pages for note taking each week: a weekly sermon outline page with sections to record the sermon passage, speaker, date, keywords, and prayer requests and lined notepaper for additional notes.
Memory Work Journals
Do you want to teach your children the Reformed catechisms but aren’t sure where to start? Would you like a guide to help you plan and record Scripture verse memorization? Memorizing Scripture verses and catechism questions and answers helps us learn what we believe. The Memory Work Journal Volume 1 includes the Catechism for Young Children based on the Westminster Shorter Catechism, the Lord’s Prayer, and a selection of Bible verses and passages. The memory work journals are available in print and Kindle.
The Memory Work Journal Volume 2 includes the Westminster Shorter Catechism, the Apostles’ Creed, and a selection of Bible verses and passages. Ideal for middle school and older. Available in print and Kindle versions.
The Memory Work Journal Volume 3 includes the Heidelberg Catechism, the Nicene Creed, and a selection of Bible verses and passages. Perfect for older children and teens. Available in print and Kindle versions.
Bible Study and Prayer Journals
Would you like to read the Bible through in a year, but you aren’t sure where to start? This BIble reading plan alternates between Old Testament and New Testament books completing one book at a time. On the weekends, you’ll read from the Psalms on Saturdays and a chapter from Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, or Song of Songs on Sundays. This plan allows you to get the feel for the flow of each book while also providing time to focus on smaller portions of the Wisdom Literature. The Bible in a Year journal alternates weekly Bible reading assignments with journal pages. The journal pages can be used to copy down verses or passages to refer back to or to take notes about what you’ve read.
Bible reading and prayer are two of the ordinary means of grace that God uses to build us up in Christ. A Bible Study and Prayer Journal gives you a place to record your weekly prayers and Bible reading. Journal pages are provided for you to take notes, to write out memory verses, or to keep track of questions for further study. Prayer list pages alternate with the journal pages.
