In the Garden Bible Study for Kids

In the Garden Bible Study for Kids

Prayer is our lifeline as Christians and we know that's a powerful thing. But prayer isn't just for adults—kids need to learn how to use this precious gift from God too! Because it is an exercise of reliance, trust, and surrender to God, prayer takes humility and lots of practice.

In the Garden is our Bible study that tackles the subject of prayer. With 25 simple, Scripture-packed lessons, this study will teach your kids the importance of having a consistent prayer life and help them practice biblical prayer so they can confidently come before the throne of their Heavenly Father with their requests—whether big or small.

Our Bible studies are available in 3 age levels that work together perfectly for family study. Each lesson has a consistent key truth, key Scripture, and central theme, no matter what age level your kids are working in.

Each study also comes with an age-appropriate fun pack that includes challenge cards, stickers, and a bookmark.

I study and write using the KJV and ESV Bibles. However, my studies are written with the intent that children and families will look up Scripture in the Bible of their choice, with specific attention taken to assure questions can be answered from a variety of translations. So you should be able to use whatever version your family prefers. It's my passion to see kids opening the Bible themselves, so we've been very intentional about this. 

I believe that the Bible is the absolute authority in matters of faith and practice. It's 100% true, with no exceptions or figurative sections. I 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.

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!

If you are buying digital, you only need one copy. If you plan to share with people outside of your home (like a group, co-op, church, etc.), you will need a site license to do so. Those can be found on each product's page.

If you are buying softcover, you should purchase one copy per child. This will enable children to write in the book, as it is designed to record their drawings and responses to the Word.

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.

A great way to learn about prayer and fun at the same time

We love these studies

In the garden was the first study we completed from NotConsumed and it was such a great place to start! The stickers are beautiful, the resources are engaging, the layout of each day is interesting and keeps us coming back for more. Daresay, my son even ENJOYED it!

I’m the Garden p/y/jr books

We are 7 days into this study, with my goal being that June was our deadline. We all know how life gets in the way. My girls are taking the lead and learning through their personal scripture journey, and mine, the truth of Gods word and why we need it. I believe when I prayed for help, I was lead to Not Consumed. You all are excellent in what you do, thank you. Plus, the family focused time is so intentionally needed.

Powerful Prayer

This study is excellent. My kids have enjoyed all of Kim's studies, and this was no exception. They always comment on how relevant the topics are, without talking down. A perfect amount of accountability and grace. Keep them coming!

Love the new extras

We have been using the Not Consumed bible studies for many years, but I really like the new extras like buttons and scripture cards that go with them now. This study is neat since the kids can do it alone and I can too and then come together to share.

Look forward to using this for homeschool as our morning Bible study/prayer time!

Sarah Gamlieli
Great Teen Study

I did this study one on one with my 17 year old. She said it has been her favorite Bible study so far. It’s been a beautiful way for us to grow in faith together and have wonderful conversations.

Enjoying 'In the Garden'

My two older children (8 and almost 13 years old, respectively) were hooked on the study from the getgo. They loved the story about Grandma at Thanksgiving! The Bible lessons are substantial, thought-provoking, and heart-stirring. We also enjoy choosing from the themes stickers. Great study, thank you!

Teaching us how to pray

I snatched up this study when I realized it was on prayer! I am really looking forward to leading my 10-, 14-, and 16-yr olds through this study. Kim’s materials are profound, with just the right amount of scriptures to look up and questions to respond to. We don’t find her to be talking down to any age group in the suggested ages for each level. These studies are really getting my older children to be digging into the Word independently and then being able to articulate what they’ve gleaned from it! They are always excited when I hand out the next study!
