The Busy Mom’s Guide to Bible Study, Lisa Whelchel – Christina’s Day Five

Posted by on Aug 22, 2013 in The Busy Mom's Guide To Bible Study

Today is focused on saying Scripture out loud AND turning it into a prayer by inserting pronouns for those you are praying for…. NICE!  Lisa Welchel is such a great guide in this – and I am thankful to this study.

The scripture for today is:

Be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might.  Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil.  For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over the present darkness, against the spiritual

Good Beautiful Morning!

Today I worked on Day four of the study… I think this learning style is best suited for me.  Like Lisa my son, who ironically enough is named Tucker as well, has ADHD and yes it is the best for him too!

Writing down your scripture you are focusing on is a super cool way to be able to take it one word at a time too.  I usually say it as I write it, re read it out loud, then internalize and analyze it.  AND I think using index cards is a great way to then organize them as to maybe situations they are best suited for, or feelings you get when you read it or even the spiritual “topic” is was meant for so that you can file them in an index box card holder for later use!

I like this idea too for the Prayer binder Lisa talks about on her website – creating a binder for situational prayers along with prayer requests from people where you write the prayer down on a card and some scripture and place it in the binder for easy recall and prayer time!

Praise the Lord all nations!
Extol him, all people!
For great is his steadfast love towards us,
and the faithfulness of the Lord endures forever.
Praise the Lord!
Psalm 117

The Busy Mom’s Guide to Bible Study, Lisa Whelchel – Christina’s Day Three

Auditory learning…  reading the content out loud (loud enough to hear it well, not a little whisper)  gives us another learning style Lisa Whelchel shares in this day’s study.  I think I like this method the best – I do find myself when I really need to concentrate on something I am writing or reading I read it out loud.  So for learning I really feel this is the best for me.

One of my favorite things from my small group bible study is what ever we were studying the leader, Mike, would break it into peaces and have each one of us read that piece out loud to the group.  It was really neat because not only did we get the benefit of listening to someone else and their “inflections” while reading but we all seemed to have different translations of the bible and we could share that too… boy I miss that the most!

Day three works like this – read this passage and “stress” each word while reading it several times over – so the first time you read it out loud you stress the first word, the second time – the second word, the third time – the third word and so on until you have read it out loud as many times as there are words in the passage.  I am not sure about reading the passage over and over as many times as there are words in it but defilement out loud – as I say loud and proud!

Try it – here is our passage:

Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.  Psalm 37:4

The Busy Mom’s Guide to Bible Study, Lisa Whelchel – Christina’s Day Two

Posted by on Aug 12, 2013 in The Busy Mom's Guide To Bible Study

Lisa Whelchel takes us on a journey where we look into the different modalities of “learning”, “taking in what we read or are exposed to”, “retaining the information for our knowledge base”.  She discusses Visual Learning, Auditory Learning and Kinesthetic Learning(learning while doing).  How do you study or work best and retain the information you need to retain?  I am a hands on person, I like to read and touch at the same time then I can retain steps I need to take, I can retain facts that are shared and best of all I am equip to teach others best when I have learned something this way.

Today we read Matthew 5:3-10

New International Version (NIV)

“Blessed are the poor in spirit,
    for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are those who mourn,
    for they will be comforted.
Blessed are the meek,
    for they will inherit the earth.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
    for they will be filled.
Blessed are the merciful,
    for they will be shown mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart,
    for they will see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers,
    for they will be called children of God.
10 Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness,
    for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Today Lisa introduces using the 5 W’s and an H – she goes on to explain how using these words/questions in your breakdown of the scripture you are reading you get a clearer picture and can well kinda cut to the chase of what is going on.

Jesus Heals Ten Men With Leprosy (Luke 17:11-19)

11 Now on his way to Jerusalem, Jesus traveled along the border between Samaria and Galilee. 12 As he was going into a village, ten men who had leprosy[a] met him. They stood at a distance 13 and called out in a loud voice, “Jesus, Master, have pity on us!”

14 When he saw them, he said, “Go, show yourselves to the priests.” And as they went, they were cleansed.

15 One of them, when he saw he was healed, came back, praising God in a loud voice. 16 He threw himself at Jesus’ feet and thanked him—and he was a Samaritan.

17 Jesus asked, “Were not all ten cleansed? Where are the other nine? 18 Has no one returned to give praise to God except this foreigner?” 19 Then he said to him, “Rise and go; your faith has made you well.”  (reference: http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Luke%2017:11-19&version=NIV)
