The purpose of the Bible Studies for Preteens series is to get kids into the Word. Often, kids this age read devotions or listen to youth leaders speak, but don't take time to read Scripture for themselves. As parents, we have a great opportunity to fill our children's days with good things. Truly there could be no greater thing than pouring over God's Word and realizing it is active and speaks directly to each person.
The other day, we drove my friend's daughter to her soccer game. All told, we spend 2 1/2 hours either driving to, sitting at, or riding home from the game. I'm sure there are other games or practices throughout the week. While these are good things with many benefits, I wondered how many of our children spend anywhere near that time on the really good, eternal things of God.
With so many adult Bible Studies, I thought it high time we had more Bible Study choices for our kids!
BTW...I may record some free video sessions to go along with this study, so be sure to visit my blog and follow, so you will be informed of all upcoming events.
For His glory,

Bible Studies for Preteens are great first in-depth Bible Studies for this age-group. They take the readers through a portion of the Bible, leaving them with a feeling of success and training them in how to study their own Bibles. The reading passages are divided into manageable and content appropriate chunks. Each Bible study includes Word Checks with definitions, where appropriate, to aid in understanding. Each study also includes relevant and thoughtful questions throughout. In addition, short answer verses long writing assignments make this study fun and not overwhelming.
This particular Bible Study is on Jonah. Among other things, your son or daughter will discover that God is in control of everything - including his/her life!
Your son or daughter will use his/her own Bible to read the passages.
It takes just 10 days to complete this Bible Study.
This study is great for girls or boys!
