Come and See

On this video I am happy to introduce a new Bible study for you to enjoy with your children! This study encourages your children to “come and see” Jesus! It focuses on twelve Bible passages that share about Jesus’ life on earth.

When you are ready to use this Come and See Bible study with your children, you are welcome to use the download to print as many free copies as you will need for your family.

2 TIPS FOR DOING THIS STUDY

One Page: It may be helpful to give your children just one Bible Study Page at a time rather than the entire the Bible study at once. Each new Bible Study Page can be given to your children when you are ready to study another Bible passage together.

Time: Give yourselves plenty of time to enjoy each passage study. It may take a few days or even longer to complete all the steps in the study. Not because the steps are complicated, but because you will want to have time to savor God’s Word as you study it together.

Have Younger Children?

The recommended ages for this Bible study is 8 years old to adult. If you have children younger than 8, you can certainly encourage them to join you as you study with your older children! They can listen, watch and participate in the Bible study steps that they are ready for.

I am looking forward to hearing from you as you enjoy this study with your children! What were your children’s favorite Bible study steps? What questions did your children have concerning any of the Bible study steps? What is something you did to make this Bible Study time special in your home?

As a young daughter my parents encouraged me to memorize Scripture verses. I memorized Isaiah 41:10 and it became one of my favorite verses.

“Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.” Isaiah 41:10

As an adult I continue to treasure Isaiah 41:10. And I can say with confidence that God has always been faithful to His Word. Praise Him! He is worthy of all our trust.

Verse Study

Would you like a simple, yet creative and fun way to encourage discussion and increase comprehension of a Bible verse that you are memorizing with your daughter?

Enjoy “A Crayon Verse Study”!
Suggested Ages: 3-10

Prepare:

– Write or print Psalm 136:1 with large letters on paper. Make copies for you and your daughter.

– Give your daughter her Psalm 136:1 paper along with a pink, green, purple, blue, and orange crayon or other crayon colors of your choice.

– Explain that you are going to do a “Crayon Verse Study” together.

– Read Psalm 136:1 out loud.

– Pray together and ask the Lord to give you understanding as you study.

Notes:

If your daughter cannot read, as you follow the steps below, read the verse out loud for her each time you ask a new question so that she can once again think on the verse and answer your question.

If your daughter is very young, it will probably be best to keep the answers simple, focusing on the overall meaning of the verse. If she is older, it would be great to encourage more discussion.

Study:

Think! What is the first word in Psalm 136:1? What does the word “Give” mean?

Color! Draw a rectangle around the word “Give” with your pink crayon and color in the rectangle.

Think! What does Psalm 136:1 tell us we are to give? What do we mean when we say “Thanks?”

Color! Draw a green oval around the word ‘thanks’ and color in the oval.

Think! To whom are we to give thanks? Who is the Lord?

Color! Draw a purple circle around the word “Lord” and color in the circle.

Think! What words tell us about God? What do the words good and mercy mean to you?

Color! Draw blue squares around the words “good and mercy” and color in the squares.

Think! How long does God’s mercy last? How long is forever?

Color! Use the orange crayon to draw a cloud around the words ‘for ever’.

Pray: Thank God that He is good and that His mercy endures forever.
IDEA!

Enjoy the “Crayon Verse Study” using other Bible verses.

Use this “Crayon Verse Study” activity to introduce each of your new Bible memory verses.

If you plan to continue to do this activity with other Bible verses, you may want to have your daughter keep her “Crayon Verse Study” papers in her own “Crayon Verse Study” folder.

If you are doing this with an older daughter, you and she could look up cross references that relate to the verse you are studying and then talk about how the cross references help to understand the meaning of the original verse of study.

SHARE IT!
– What Bible verse did you use?

– What did you like about the Crayon Verse Study?

– Are you going to do the Crayon Verse Study with another verse?

– Is this an idea you would share with a friend? Why or why not?

YOUR PICS!

This was one of my favorite ideas yet! My kids (ages 5,4,2) really enjoyed doing this Bible verse study. It helped me teach the verse, and helped them understand it! Thank you for this idea:)

“Thy words were found, and I did eat them; and thy word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart: for I am called by thy name, O LORD God of hosts.”

Jeremiah 15:16
