I Have Decided: A Bible Study on Exercising Your Faith


I Have Decided: A Bible Study on Exercising Your Faith

Congratulations! Your child has just surrendered their life to Jesus! This is such a joyful and exciting thing! But just because your child has made a profession of faith doesn't mean they know how to walk with Jesus. Now that they're a Christian, it's time to learn what this really means and what it looks like in their life every day!

I Have Decided is a Bible study created to help new believers understand how to live a Christian life by exercising their faith. Through studying God's Word, your child will:

  • Learn about their new identity in Christ
  • Learn how they can trust God and walk with Him on their own 
  • Learn practical strategies for spiritual disciplines
  • Be empowered by God's strength for their Christian walk instead of relying on themselves

Packed with scripture and truth, this study is a great resource to help your new believer work out their salvation and grow in newness of life!

Mount Zion Marathon Audio Drama cover

Mount Zion Marathon Audio Drama (All Ages)

A Peep Behind the Scenes Audio Drama (Ages 9+)

Written in 1879, "A Peep Behind the Scenes" is a compelling story of a girl living in a traveling theater. Behind many smiling faces hides a hurting heart, for there is often a high price to pay for what appears glamorous. In a world of glitz and glamour, Rosalie learns how much she needs the Good Shepherd to save her and seek those who are lost!



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.

This is the first study I’ve ordered from Not Consumed. It was for my grandchild out of town & I wasn’t so sure how it would be. I was extremely happy as I went through the study page by page when it arrived. It is absolutely perfect. I Love how it talks about “working out your salvation “. Gave it as an early Christmas gift & my grandchild loved it. I purchased the Youth age level.

Natalie J

Picked up this study for my kids as a baptism gift. It's the perfect study to sink our teeth into! There are short, easy to digest lessons and fun exercises to drive points home. Really impressed. My husband and I loved the study so much, we came back immediately to purchase the Christmas study as well!

I have decided

This has been a wonderful study. I’ve done this with my 8 year old son after his decision to follow Jesus and get baptized. It’s so full of scripture. The conversations this has helped us have has been some of my favorite most precious times with my son. These children understand more than we give them credit for. Doing this study with him has been wonderful for me as well. We all need this study in our lives no matter the age. This is wonderful for all new Christians. It definitely points you to the right next steps in following Jesus and making God the Lord of your life.

Forever Grateful

My daughter and I are enjoying this study beyond words can really thank you for. This will have an impact on our walk with Jesus for the best for all eternity.

Great starting point

I ordered this study for my middle two kids to each do on their own (8 & 10yr olds,) and though they occasionally needed some help with it, it was a pretty independent devotional for them. As a homeschool mom I do a Bible time with my kids in the morning and my husband does scripture reading with them in the evening, but we wanted them to learn how to study God's Word on their own. The other day we were doing our evening scripture time and my son was able to quote the verse we had just read because he had learned and studied it in this devotional. It was awesome to see fruit from their private study time.
