Hand copying Scripture is simply writing out word-for-word passages of Scripture by hand. This practice is helping me to change the way I read and study God's Word.
Over the past few months, I have seen families studying God's Word together so I developed OPEN MY EYES for KIDS!
This month, we are focusing on THE NAMES OF JESUS. He is our greatest gift. He is the reason for this season and the Presence in our present. Jesus should be the focus of this season and I believe this writing plan will help our kids stay focused on their greatest gift.
Jesus goes by many different names in the Bible. Each name reveals a part of His character, and who He is to us. I think your children will love discovering that Jesus goes by many different names and each name reveals a function of who He is.
"OPEN MY EYES: FOR KIDS" will focus on children ages 4-10, maybe 12 depending on your child. I believe that students over the age of twelve can use the adult writing plans. You can read more about how I use this plan with my seven-year-old. You can also see below the different Bibles I use and recommend for children.
We will continue the Scripture Writing plans for kids into the New Year. The name will be changing from OPEN MY EYES to INSCRIBE THE WORD (more on that in a future post). But the essence of these plans will still be the same; to give your children a responsibility each day of discovering Jesus for themselves. I hope you have the Merriest of Christmas' and the best of New Years'. I am so looking forward to walk together in 2017.
