There is no scripture written out in our studies, only references. When it comes to growing faith, it's crucial that kids look up passages in the Bible for themselves and our studies are written to help them do that!

We study and write using ESV, as well as a variety of translations. Special attention has been given to make sure kids can answer questions regardless of the translation they are using.

We believe that the Bible is the absolute authority in matters of faith and practice. It's 100% true, with no exceptions or figurative sections. We believe in the verbal, plenary inspiration of Scripture; in one God eternally existing in three Persons; in the creation of all things, including man, as the direct act of God; in eternally secure salvation by grace through faith in the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ; in the incarnation and virgin birth of Christ, and in His bodily resurrection; in the personal, bodily, premillennial return of the Lord Jesus Christ and His millennial reign on earth. Read more here.

This is by far the most common question we get around here. Please check out this video. I'll show you the differences between the levels and walk you through how to use them as a family!

You'll want to purchase one copy per child at their specific age level. This will enable children to study at their level and record their own drawings and responses to the Word.

We highly encourage you to make sure that each child can participate by having their own book on their own level. You can learn more about why in this video.

Each Bible study is a slightly different length, ranging from 20 lessons to 28 lessons. We suggest doing one lesson a day. Most kids find that it takes about 15 minutes a day.

The obey study has been so wonderful for my boys! It has really helped my oldest grow in his faith and now he wants to be baptized. It’s been so helpful.

Wonderful Resource!

Just finished the Obey study with my 7 and 8 year old kids. This was our first full study from Not Consumed and we loved it. We went with the Primary Level for this study and it was very easy for my kids to read and understand. They recall all the ways we should Obey and they have truly helped them and me in our obedience. We will be starting a new Not Consumed study right away and ordering more for the future!

Grandkids love it!

I bought the Obey Series for my four grandkids aged 6-10. Their dad has been guiding them through it and loves it! The kids love it, too, and are learning how to study and apply God's Word. They are looking forward to seeing the next series that I give them.

Tristan Lane
So great for kids!

I love these Bible study/devotions. This was such a great one! He really got into it as he wears going through it each day, and he talked about what all he learned once he finished the book. He now wants me to get an adult study to do our next one together 😊

Good Bible study

This was our first study and it was great. The layout and questions are nice. Personally, the scripture references isn’t enough, so we read more from the Bible than recommended.

Awesome resource

My kids were enlightened by the many references to God's children obeying in the Bible. I love that each lesson is specific to this and it helps the kids break down what it means to them and how they can do better. We loved this resource!


Love this resource! Can’t wait to start with my kids!


I love the new design that these studies have.


My family and I did this study together and it really helped open our eyes to what it truly means to obey the Lord. It’s also because of this study that we were introduced to a new hymn that’s now a part of our daily worship. Thank you so much for this! 🙏🏼
