This Bible study was just what we needed. It encouraged open & honest conversations with my kids, and was written in such an understandable way with great questions to help guide them through each lesson.
I'm doing it with my 6 year old, and the lessons are short to keep his attention. The words used are simple yet powerful to make sense to his understanding. There are Bible verses to look at (read) and make him learn about it. We love it - it's perfect!
Having a content heart is hard for adults these days. Let alone a child. This lesson is a great reminder for all of us.
We purchased the digital version and it has been amazing. Our family (mom, step dad, 17 year old son and 7 year old son) does the study together. The lessons are clear and concise and use ideas that our 7 year old understands. I cannot wait to get more studies!
Our whole family has been doing the study. We've all been loving it!
This was a great study for my kids. (We are a homeschool family and my kids are 1, 6, 9, 10, and 12. I used the primary and junior ages. I am moving my oldest up to the youth for the Christmas study that I just ordered. My 1 year old obviously didn't participate LOL.)
I timed it so that we would finish this right before Thanksgiving and Christmas since that seems to be a very "give me" time of year! It wasn't a super deep study, but it was perfect for what my kids needed and I loved that they were looking up scripture on their own. They did each day by themselves (except for my 6 year old) and then we came together to go over it. I would definitely recommend this for other families looking to teach their kids about studying the Bible. My only "complaint" is that the parent guide could be a little deeper, but I realize that's not the purpose of this study. Overall I was very pleased! As we ended, we talked about the differences in NEEDS and WANTS. It really clicked with my kids and they will now correct me when I say I need something! Ha!
We're half way through the study together. The kids have been engaging with it well and it's started some great conversations. Thank you!!
We are only halfway through this study and it's amazing! Another beautiful, thought-provoking study from Not Consumed. My teenage son came to me and said "Mom! The versed they had us look up today were really good! Like, fantastic!" This is a kid who is deep in the word in a Leadership program in not only our church, but surrounding states, where kids learn to disciple and share the gospel and are being trained to be leaders. His youth pastor has them memorize entire books of the bible. So, for him to say it's amazing, and makes him think and challenges him, is amazing and wonderful and we will just keep on doing your studies! Thank you so much, Kim & team!!
After my dear daddy passed away in 2020 and I received inheritance money, I was able to use some of that money to invest in the spiritual life of my family and purchase many studies from Not Consumed. A Content Heart was the first study we did together and I absolutely loved how all of us were learning the same principles and focusing on the same verses together. The children (ages 11, 13, 15, 17) were very focused each morning during their quiet time and then we would come together during family time for review and discussion. It is a wonderful and productive way to begin each day! Much love and thanks to the Not Consumed team for producing high-quality, thought-provoking Christian materials that are such a huge blessing to families!
