The Firmly Planted Family Study Guide is designed with the whole family in mind. Psalm 1:3 says "Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord; he is like a tree, firmly planted by streams of water who yields its fruit in due season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers." This is the first book in a series designed to take you through the whole bible. The Family Study Guide can be accompanied by a the Firmly Planted Workbook for additional activities.
Book 1 covers Genesis 1-35, which contains foundational narrative that the rest of the Bible is based on. Part 1 of the "Books of Moses" covers 10 weeks of study and is meant to be used either individually, or in a group like a Sunday School. This particular volume is geared towards children to help them grasp some of the key concepts of God's Word.
Each week will contain the following:
The Seed: This is the 'big idea' or 'key concept' for the week. (Whenever possible this will always point towards Jesus as revealed and foreshadowed from Genesis to Revelation)
Planting the Seed: This is the scripture memorization component and might be a simplified 6-12 words for ages 4-11 and a longer 15-25 words for ages 12-18.
Watering the Seedling: This is the 5-6 minute lesson for families, co-ops, church small groups and other groups to read aloud together. It helps the seed concept 'germinate' for the student.
Daily Study: This is the daily devotion designed to be done with your family. It guides you and your family in a deeper exploration of what God is teaching us in each week's passage.
