Bible Quiet Time – A Lifeline That Connects Our Children to the Lord

What is a Bible Quiet Time? Simply put, it is a personal time to connect with the Lord. Bible Quiet Times can differ from one another in many ways. However, they all need to include a Bible reading or a scripture focus. Music, prayer, journaling, devotions, study guides, scripture memorization, etc. can all be a part of Bible Quiet Time as well. All of Heart of Dakota’s guides include Bible Study. However, Bible Quiet Times are first modeled in Preparing Hearts for His Glory. After this, Bible Quiet Times are a daily part of Heart of Dakota’s plans. I want our sons to have a lifelong habit of meeting with the Lord each day. I want them to view their Bible Quiet Time as a lifeline that connects them to the Lord! For this post, let’s take a look at the Bible Quiet Times in PHFHG through MTMM.

Preparing Hearts for His Glory’s Bible Study and Bible Quiet Time

Preparing Hearts for His Glory encourages students to read God’s Word and connect personally with the Psalms. Readings from key passages, Scripture memory work, and songs that set the Psalms to music provide natural connections. This year of study will help students begin a lifelong habit of digging into Scripture for guidance. See the following list for details about this Bible Quiet Time:

  • First, read and discuss passages from Psalms using heartfelt questions that encourage students to reflect upon God’s Word.
  • Next, identify the mood and purpose of each Psalm. Use prompts from your guide to apply the themes of each passage in prayer.
  • Then, have a personal quiet time filled with prayer and praise based on the Psalms. This special time will help students transition into having their own personal Bible quiet time in future guides.
  • After that, copy Scripture memory selections in a “Common Place Book.” This book is a special journal to copy meaningful Scriptures.
  • Finally, memorize entire passages from the Psalms through repetition, hand motions, and beautifully-performed music from Kelly Crawford’s Lead Me to the Rock.

Creation to Christ’s Bible Quiet Time

Creation to Christ provides a solid year of biblical study, encouraging students to read God’s Word as they learn about the ancient history of the faith. With Bible readings, historic accounts, and verse memorization set to music, this year of study is sure to have a deep impact on your growing child. See the following list for details about this Bible Quiet Time:

  • See the Bible come alive as students read daily from The Illustrated Family Bible. Maps, photographs, and diagrams bring ancient cultures to life.
  • Learn the parts of prayer and pray meditatively from each day’s Scripture reading.
  • Make Scripture memorization a joyful experience by using repetition, copywork, and music to memorize Philippians Chapter 2.

Resurrection to Reformation’s Bible Quiet Time

See the following list for details about Resurrection to Reformation’s Bible Quiet Time:

  • Dig beneath the surface of daily Bible readings with The Hidden Treasures in Philippians. Step by step – like an archaeologist – students will dig, sift and sort their way through biblical passages to uncover truths that will help them the rest of their lives.
  • Take time to be quiet in the presence of God. Pray from the four parts of prayer:  adoration, confession, thanksgiving, and supplication.
  • Make Scripture memorization a joyful experience by using repetition, copywork, and music to memorize all of Philippians Chapter 1.

Revival to Revolution’s Bible Quiet Time

See the following list for details about Revival to Revolution’s Bible Quiet Time:

  • Dig beneath the surface of daily Bible readings with Heroes of Faith:  The Hidden Treasures in Hebrews.  Step by step – like an archaeologist – students will dig, sift and sort their way through biblical passages to uncover truths that will help them the rest of their lives.
  • Examine the following ten heroes of faith from Hebrews:  Abel, Enoch, Noah, Abraham, Sarah, Joseph, Moses, Rahab, David, and Jesus.  As students examine the lives of these ten heroes of faith, they will learn the importance of believing and trusting God no matter what trials may come.
  • Take time to be quiet in the presence of God and pray from a list of “Possible Prayer Starters” focused on the four parts of prayer:  adoration, confession, thanksgiving, and supplication.
  • Make Scripture memorization a joyful experience by using repetition, copywork, and recitation to memorize all of Hebrews Chapter 11 and the first part of Chapter 12.

Missions to Modern Marvels’ Bible Quiet Time

See the following list for details about Missions to Modern Marvel’s Bible Quiet Time:

  • Keep a daily prayer journal using “Preparing Your Heart for Prayer” questions and pray through the four parts of prayer:  adoration, confession, thanksgiving, and supplication.
  • Make Scripture memorization a joyful experience by using recitation, repetition, and copywork to memorize all of Romans 12 and James 4.
  • Learn 12 of the greatest hymns ever composed with Hymns for a Kid’s Heart: Volume Two. This beautiful full-color book and fully orchestrated CD set includes richly orchestrated music, hymn writers’ stories, heartfelt prayers, Scripture verses, and printed sheet music.

In Closing

Heart of Dakota’s Bible Quiet Times have helped our sons grow closer and closer to the Lord. They have also become attached to their own Bibles. Their Bibles have been used and used and used through the years!  They have many good memories, annotations, highlighting, and special notes in their Bibles. They can easily see the many Scriptures they have memorized. What a blessing!

In Christ,
Julie
