Hi there! Can you believe it is already mid-November!? Time has surely picked up and we are in the final weeks of this crazy year. As we finish out this year I am excited to bring you a little bit of encouragement from a resource that directs you to the ultimate healer and source of Hope, Jesus Christ. For the past few weeks, I have been using Faith Journeys Bible Study Series: Romans bundle by Julie Polanco from Julie Naturally. Julie Polanco, the creator of Julie Naturally is a homeschooling mom of 4 who has been schooling at home for the past 17 years. For this review she provided us with two of her downloads Faith Journeys Bible Study Series: Romans Bundle and the Faith Journeys Bible study Series: Philippians, from her Bible study series.
The Faith Journeys Bible Study Series: Romans Bundle ($14.99) is an eight week study that covers two chapters of Romans a week. The Faith Journey Study Series: Philippians ($8.49) is a shorter four week study that covers just one chapter of Philippians each week. Each of these studies are available as a Printable PDF and both contain:
~ daily Bible reading
~ printable memory verse cards
~ four to five short answer questions
~ as well as a weekly coloring page
Completing the weekly lessons is short and sweet and normally takes just 15-20 minutes of my quiet time. The Romans study also include a video series to watch before digging into the lesson. These videos are also short, just 10-12 minutes long. All of the scripture in both of these series is taken from the 1984 NIV.
I chose to work with the study on Romans for this review period. Of course I had to buy a new planner/journal to use with my Bible study. You don’t have to do this, the pages print neatly and you can 3-hole punch and place in a binder or you can spiral bind the pages for a notebook as well. I ended up printing the pages I needed for each week and punched them to fit inside my planner.
I really like that the questions after the scripture reading point the reader to God. They are thought provoking and makes you examine your daily living. I also like the structure of this study, there is no question of what should be read each day. However, it would be nice to have an answer key for the questions just to make sure you are grasping all that needs to be for each question. Having something to bounce off of would give me a different perspective to the questions and let me know if I need to dig a little deeper or if I am right on track with my thinking. I especially liked the added coloring pages for the 7th day of the week. I started out coloring these pages on the 7th day, but found it was easier for me to color while listening to the video on day one.
Overall, I found this study on Romans to be excellent and I highly recommend you checking it out! For a busy mom or teen who is looking for an easy to complete Bible Study either of these would fit the bill. I plan on saving the Philippians study until January since Advent is coming soon.
