How to Dig into God's Word and a GIVEAWAY

Back in my younger high school years, I remember owning a little blue New Testament Bible. All the things I learned about the Bible..events, people, history and genealogy was learned through my Christian Living subject, Sunday Catechism and movies.I went off to College and still owned the little blue New Testament Bible. I had some additions to that, I had a handful of prayer books and Novena pamphlets.

I really didn't know how to dig deeper into God's word. That it has a lot to offer. The truth and food for our souls. I can recite the New Testament books to you without winking ( thanks to my 6th grade Christian Living teacher who taught us to sing it). I could recite well known Bible passages to you but never had the chance to deeply put my heart, mind and soul into the scriptures.

 




How do you dig into God's word?

1. Know God - knowing God is falling in love with Him. Knowing Him through His word - BIBLE.
2. Resting - Rest your worries and let go of what a scripture reading or scripture time with the Lord is. Whatever your method is that will work for you, go for it. If it is through Bible Illustration, if it is through journaling. You don't have to have all the fancies to spend time with Him. You can go with color coding method, S.O.A.P method, S.O.A.K method.
3.Stop doubting- Trust His words. Whatever your past is, rest in Christ.
4.Praying - Pray for guidance, pray that through His word...you may fully know Him. I was scared of literally interpreting the Bible. I just don't want to pick and choose passages and stories that suits my mood. Pray before reading the Bible and after. Make prayer a priority too.
5. Habit - Make it a habit and part of your routine. I love my time with Him in the morning before my kids get up for their day and after my husband leaves for work.
6. Music- We enjoy listening to worship songs every morning. It is an inspiration. Music that is deeply soaked with God's words and promises. Our kids have their own playlist on Spotify. 
7. References - Use references that goes with your Bible reading. You can use the library or book sales. I always take advantage of book bag sales. Find a very affordable Christian store. References can get very expensive on big boxed stores.

If you are looking for an  affordable store where you can purchase references, I definitely recommend Family Christian Stores. I purchased my items online. I will be honest, the check out didn't go smoothly as I want it to be. I registered twice but it still won't register on the system . BUT I phoned in and they are very very accommodating. I just gave my order online, since it is always nice to talk to a person anyway. Abigail of Family Christian Store was so nice and helpful. Besides, all online stores have computer glitches every now and again. I will definitely order again.

As for my purchase, I ordered The Baker Illustrated Guide to the Bible: A Book-By-Book Companion that I will use with my personal Bible Study and to share with our kids and America Strong Shirt for my hubs. Love the Philippians: 4:13 passage on the shirt .America Strong, such a timely reminder with today's political events. Not my strongest suit..so I'm moving on :)

    I Love You Just Because: Book Review and Giveaway

    I cherish the times I get to read with our girls. I am fortunate that they love books as much as we do. I can't live without a book. Tablets and readers are all great but  I always find myself with a good 'ole piece of book.

    Any chance given to us to instill teaching moments and to explain some topics that they find confusing , whether will it be through an experience or an acquaintance and in this case a book, we will take it. We always explain to our kids that some families are different than ours and that is totally okay! Just like we once explained to them that mommy is from Philippines and dad is from here in United States. We are an interracial couple, who saw past outward differences. They find it amusing that mom talks two different languages. That's what make us beautifully different, we are an interracial family. God had perfectly put us together. His plan and His timing is always perfect.


        Some kids are not born from their loving parents. They have "birth mothers" and God had placed them into their perfect loving parents. They may look different in the outside but it is the same unconditional love that ties them as a family.  This book also puts emphasis on how love is not earned, just like how God's love and grace for us is not earned.  How I love when the bear siblings helped each other. It is one thing that we always teach our girls, to be there for each other. Regardless of their differences,  strengths and weakness.

    ABOUT THE BOOK:

    Through adorable, cuddly art and fun rhyming text, I Love You Just Because will help little ones understand their parents' love for them and that it doesn't have to be earned. With playful artwork and the same friendly bear family you already know and love from Donna Keith's first two books—I Love You All the Same and I Love You Even When—the sweet story of this book will touch you and your family and will remind you that family members love each other...just because.
    Parents will gravitate toward the felt need and fun messaging of this book as it seeks to help them explain to their little ones that they are truly loved just because.

    ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

    I love you Just Because, along with Donna Keith's first two books, were inspired by her oldest daughter's interracial family, but it was Donna's youngest brother who gave her the idea to write about three different bear cubs living together in one family.
