Reading The Bible Through With Your Kids

As our family has turned the calender to a new year and we are beginning to commit to new goals for 2012 I began to think how now would be a perfect time to begin reading the bible through together with our two youngest boys.  I would like to tell you that I am committing to reading the Bible each morning or evening but that would not be realistic and only create mommy guilt as we all know some days can get crazy and we are just happy if we get them tucked into bed on time.  However that doesn’t mean we don’t set goals and begin accomplishing them as we place priority on each goal.

To begin accomplishing my goal of reading the bible through with my boys I decided  I needed a schedule that would guide me in our daily readings – which chapters to read and how many to read.  I found a simple schedule to follow that The Teaching Home Magazine created  to print for free –   it has  the following features

  • Start any month.
  • Read 6 days a week (allows for church on Sunday).
  • Read 4 weeks per month (24 days per month).
Week 1 _______________
Gen. 1-4Ps. 1Matt. 1
Gen. 5-9Prov. 1:1-7Matt. 2
Gen. 10-14Ps. 2Matt. 3

Column 1: Complete Bible (minus Psalms and Proverbs)
Column 2: Psalms and Proverbs
Column 3: Optional Second Reading of New Testament

These selections may be combined in different ways. For example:
You may want to do one or two family readings of Columns 1 and 2 and use Column 3 for private or school reading.
Alternatively, if you have very young children, you may want to do Columns 2 and 3 for your family reading and Column 1 for your private reading.

Get The Teaching Home’s complete Bible-reading schedule by clicking here.  Then choose the months you want to print out from their site on the left hand column.  You can also read more about reading through the bible on The Teaching Home Magazine website.

  1. I wanted to share with you a really great app that can help you with your plan. It’s called Pursue Journal and it can be downloaded to a mobile device for free. It was created by a Youth Pastor from City Bible Church in Portland, Oregon. It not only gives a daily reading, but it will read it to you if you like. I haven’t missed a day yet due to this and neither has my twelve year old daughter! It will take you through the Old Testament once and the New Testament and Proverbs twice in a year. I hope you find it as helpful as I did.
