During this season of my life, I mostly write out of necessity for my own children. Recently, I wanted to have my fifth grade daughter do an age-appropriate Bible Study, but just couldn't find what I was looking for. I had a few requirements. I wanted it to have her reading from her own Bible. I didn't want it to be overwhelming. I wanted it to instill some truths into her. I didn't want her to dread her Bible Time each day.
So...the Bible Character Study series was born. Ruth was the first study I created. The second study was on Hannah.
This study is on Rebekah. It takes just one week to complete!
Each page includes word checks with definitions to aid in understanding. There are relevant and thoughtful questions throughout. The chapters are divided into manageable and content appropriate chunks.
In addition, there is a keepsake box that she will make during the study. This is my daughter's favorite part! All you need is an empty cereal box! You print and tape the cover, included with this resource, to the box. There is a list of suggested items that you add to the box each day. The item relates to what she learned that day.
Take a look...
Suggested items for your character study box:
Day 1 –add a glove (Today we shake hands to when we make a deal, but in Bible times they would grab the thigh.)
Day 2 –water bottle (Rebekah gave the servant and his camels water to drink.)
Day 3 –a toy ring or bracelet (Abraham’s servant gave Rebekah a ring and two bracelets.)
Day 4–a ziploc bag with 10 items in it such as 10 button, 10 beans, 10 gem clips, etc. (Laban and Rebekah’s mother wanted he to stay 10 days and then go with Abraham’s servant.)
Day 5 – flower (Isaac and Rebekah got married. Today, brides carry flowers when they get married.)
I'm already busy with my next Bible Character Study because my daughter wants to continue! I am so grateful that she is getting excited about reading and studying God's Word.
Hope your daughter enjoys this study too! There's so much God can teach us through His Word!
For His glory,
