To Mom and Dad,
Like every Christian parent, I wanted my children to read the Bible. However, although I
found numerous Bible reading plans for adults, I couldn’t find what I wanted for my kids.
Some plans were way too ambitious and time-consuming; others just had random verses
from here, there, and everywhere. Some had too much interactivity; others had too little.
Some had one verse of Bible and one page of commentary!
I wanted my children to have a Bible reading plan that would be simple, systematic,
interactive, do-able, and full of Bible. So...I wrote one myself. And when I shared the
handouts on social media, I was taken aback by the interest and appreciation. Many asked
for a book version, and you are holding the result.
Each book has about 100 days of Bible reading, each day has a brief question, and each
week has an area for prayer points.
It shouldn't require more than five minutes a day, but, over a few years, your children will
read and interact with much of the Bible. And they will end up not only with a memorable
collection of Bible workbooks, but also a blessed habit of daily, systematic, interactive, and
prayerful Bible reading.
I hope you will also talk to your children about the books. Why not have a weekly discussion
about the readings and answers, and use the opportunity to not only keep them
accountable but to develop another holy habit, that of freely discussing the Word of God
with one another.
May God bless these plans so that it may be said of all our children: “From childhood you
have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith
which is in Christ Jesus” (2 Tim. 3:15).
