We are doing this study currently and are really enjoying it! Thank you!
I picked up this study because my children were struggling with a deplorable work ethic. They were constantly complaining about the slightest little thing they were asked to do and continually spoke about how boring their chores were or asked why they had to work at all. Despite consistent instruction on Bible verses and reminders, they simply weren't receiving the truth from me as their mother. Enter the Bible study, which presented the same truths I had been attempting to teach in daily bite-size concepts all connected to the idea of work. Contrary to how discussions had previously gone, once we dove into this study, my kids were more eager to share their takeaways and even engage in discussion with me about the questions presented. It's not that what was included was any different than what I had already shared. It's just that the truths were coming from someone or something other than Mom or Dad. :)
The 4 different levels covering the same topic are really helpful. I pick up the middle one for my son and the youth for my daughter in addition to the parent guide, and we all complete our 2 pages each day together, discussing as presented. We also have a sharing time and a key takeaway once we finish. The idea of being specifically gifted and created for work, and the responsibility to work because we are part of a greater purpose and plan was such fantastic perspective, and it drove home the point of what I had been trying to help my children understand. The questions and concepts to ponder helped my children gain insight and view the meaning of work from a different perspective which enabled them to form their own personal application and understanding.
No tip-toeing around the truth with this one! Hit hard, yet with grace, and told each reader to not only understand the purpose of work but also accept the responsibility that comes with living on this earth. Great stuff!
I still recall how this study helped even myself learn about work in God's sight.. highly recommend
I loved studying this topic with my kids. I needed a place to start in teaching them work theology and this was just the thing. These studies have gotten us into God's Word independently and as a family for several months now and I always look forward to purchasing more!
We are going to be starting this soon and I can’t wait! We value teaching our children why working and the attitudes we have while working is so important. We will be starting it as part of our homeschool once we finish Keep Thy Tongue.
I started this study with my 14 year old daughter today. It is well written and enjoyable. It even led us on a rabbit trail of talking about ants! I love Not Consumed's studies.
My 11 and 13 year old kids and I have done 3 days of the study together. I love the adaptations for both age groups. The material for each day is packed with good points and scripture but concise enough to not overwhelm my kids. I am a new huge fan of this line of studies. I will be purchasing more in the future.
The material is very nicely presented. The memory verse cards are sturdy and attractive. We started using the study and cards two weeks ago. Right now I’m having difficulty getting our son interested but we’re continuing anyway. I’m hoping once we do this on a regular basis, he’ll be more into it. He’s in his forties and has Down’s syndrome as well as being autistic. If nothing else, he’s hearing the Word!
This study is not just for learning how to be a good employee when your kid grows up, it is about what God wants us to reflect in every area of our lives where we have a responsibility. If you are a parent and want to teach these wonderful disciplines to your kids, sometime the problem is how to do it in a way that they will understand without being harsh. These Bible studies for kids help you in your journey as parent. Picture what you want your kid to be as adult handling responsibilities; it starts when they are little. This book comes with 20 lessons. I got the primary level; and the lessons are short and simple, with a real life example and conversational tone. The parent will read the first page along with some Bible verses, and the kid will complete the second page with a drawing or coloring activity. The lesson ends with a simple prayer. Get them while your kids are young, don't wait! And if you have older kids, do these studies together as a family.
