I’m a busy mom of four kids too, and I get how daily Bible study for kids can sound intimidating and overwhelming (especially when life is already crazy!).

I’ve created a free video training with this simple Bible study method steps in order to make it easy to teach kids how to do Bible study at home.
Why Is the 5Rs Bible Study™ Method Ideal for Daily Bible Study for Kids?
I created the 5Rs Bible Study™ Method because I wanted a practical, powerful Bible study method for my own kids to do their Bible lessons at home.
While there are other kids Bible studies out there, I don’t like that other Bible study lessons spoon feed my kids the information.
I want my kids to learn how to study the Bible on their own! I want them to be able to open their Bible to any verse and have a specific way to glean deep spiritual insight from God.

FAQ About How to Use This Bible Study Method to Help Kids Grow Spiritually
What’s the ideal age range for kids to use the 5Rs Bible Study™ Method?
It depends on the child’s maturity and learning ability overall. I’ve seen kids as young as 6 or 7 use the 5Rs Bible Study Method™ for daily Bible lessons.
For younger children (or those who don’t like to do a lot of writing), you could have them verbally answer the questions and then you write it down for them.
Can kids do the 5Rs Bible Study™ Method on their own or should I do it with them?
At first, I would suggest that you go through the 5Rs Bible Study™ Method with your children as part of daily Bible lessons.
As kids become older (and more comfortable with doing Bible study independently), I’ve found that my children can complete their daily Bible time on their own using the 5Rs Bible Study™ Method.
How do I find Bible verses for my child to study?
There are a few ways. You could come up with a list of character traits to study (for example, here’s a list of Bible verses about wisdom) and have kids go through them one at a time.
Or, you can make it really simple and grab one of the 5Rs Bible Study Resources.
Plus, each Bible study journal has a corresponding Bible study guide with discussion questions, journaling prompts and additional Bible verses that make it easy for parents to talk to kids about these topics.
Can I use the 5Rs Bible Study™ Method for my own Bible study lessons (or for family Bible time)?
Absolutely! I recommend it to families all the time for either individual (learn how to use it for your own quiet time) or family Bible study together.
However, because the 5Rs Bible Study™ Method itself is a trademarked Bible study method, it cannot be used to create a Bible study outside of your own home.
This means that it’s not permissible to create your own Bible study for a group using the 5Rs Bible Study Method.
For example, you cannot create a free study to give away (or to sell) to anyone else, such as on a website; and you can’t create your own study to use with your students in a Christian ministry.
Again, we created the 5Rs Bible Study Resources for those who would like an easy way to use this personal Bible study method for a individual study, or for those who would like to use this easy Bible study method to study the Bible as a group.
Thanks for your help in respecting the trademark on the 5Rs Bible Study™ Method!
