My children (ages 4 and 10) and I love this Bible study! My 4 year old daughter begs me to do Bible study. I love the catchiness of the key thoughts and often quote them throughout the day to remind my children of what God wants us to do. “Obey without delay” is a family favorite.
I was looking for a more structured Bible “curriculum” to use with my 4 and 7 year old. I love Bible storybooks but wanted something a little more applicable to deepen their understanding. The primary level was great for them! Very gentle, but still directed and applicable. I’ve also enjoyed doing my own study along side them in the parents guide. However, the parents guide is not necessary to complete the study with your kids. It’s not like a teachers manual for teaching. It’s more of your own adult study book. But, still super helpful and I did feel like it prepared my heart and mind for the lesson with my kids. I highly recommend!
This was our first Not Consumed study as a family. My daughter had done Keep Thine Heart with a bible study group and we loved it. Doing the study of obedience as a family was SO good!! I love that it was recommended to start with Obey, because it is so foundational to our faith. We homeschool and it was easy to add it to our morning devotions. I love the fact that there are different book based on their level and that we're all learning the same thing, just in different, age-appropriate ways! The simple directives for Obedience were perfect and I've been able to refer back to them in our daily life, when the kids are struggling to obey. I'm so thankful for this family study and recommend it to everyone! Definitely get the Parent Guide and do it with them!
We are studying the Obey series! My kids love doing the Bible study I have heard "I love Bible study" and "can we do one more" and "awww were not doing the Bible study tonight" multiple times. My kids really like that they can color a picture along with the study. My 8 year old also likes to color every time so I alway give her extra paper in case her book doesn't include a color page. I like that we can study one subject and have multiple examples for the the kids to see in the Bible. I let my 8 year old read to us the verses. This has been great for my family, the kids always want to read more of the Bible stories and it's helping to grow their knowledge of the Word of God!
I purchased the Junior version for my kids (8 and 9 years old). They were able to complete the lessons on their own each day and then discuss with me. The books provided a good mix of Scripture-finding practice, writing, and drawing. I found the book to be very well-written and appreciate the balanced, Bible-based approach to obedience being something commanded/required but something we do out of love. My kids regularly refer back to these lessons in daily conversation. I highly recommend this study and look forward to using more Not Consumed devotional books.
We really enjoyed doing this study together as a family. It was so helpful in being able to gently remind the kids throughout the day if their behavior was following what we learned about being obedient. This gentle reminder always caused them to stop and think instead of wanting to argue further.
Our family is working through it and we love it!
Obeying has been challenging lately and this study couldn't have come at a better time. Obeying in all things. It is a nice reminder for children and adults to understand we are to obey God in ALL things. We are either following or not, this was a nice eye opener. These studies give use tools to use in our daily lives on how to walk with God. I know my children take away lessons from these studies. Eventually we'll get through them all. Thanks!!!
This obedience devotional really got my daughter (4) (and I!!) thinking about the heart issue of disobedience, and the biblical why’s and how’s to help remedy the issue. This was time wisely invested, and I plan to use it over and over again!!
