Why Study Gods Word?
We are told to study to show ourselves approved...
There is a fun and powerful way to study God's word!
Firstly purchase a nice hard cover notebook;
As after you start this learning process you will want to keep your work
of the study of the scriptures...
Learning to study can be fun when you use some tools available to us!
What fun would it be to be given a coloring book with no crayons?
When we are looking at a portion of scripture is is just plain writing;
And I do hope you, feel free to underline passages that speak to you!
It is best to have one Bible you can underline and comment in and add things you have learned!
Open your new notebook
and leave the left side of your notebook for notes only
What I do is start writing the scripture on just the right side of the book!
I Hand write out the scripture verse on the right;
I use the New King James Version as I prefer this version,
And the study tool I use of the Blue Letter Bible is comparable with this version!
~You will need an array of different colors of highlighters and colored pencils~
Make sure you buy the ones that do not bleed through the paper of
Notebook or Bible...
Using my different colors to study God's word is my favorite part!
What women do not just love new bright colors!

Okay, after you have your scripture written out, start using some tools
A dictionary to look up words, a commentary!
Circle any word that you can look up its meaning;
Underline words that interest you
Draw little pictures of something that relates, like a heart or a question mark.
Being creative with your circles and underlining and pictures, will help you
retain the information and help it stick in your memory.
If you have access to a compute this is a great study tool to help you
Also a Strong's Concordance works just great also!
A Bible dictionary is helpful;
Having a few study tools always available will bring much profit!
~This is money well spent and can be used by the whole family~
Make studying God's word fun and let it be something you do often!
Spending time reading so much christian material is okay;
But studying God's word will have a much greater impact on your life...
I hope you enjoyed and maybe gleaned something from this article in my Blog
Sometimes it is nice to see how other women are learning and growing!
I find this form of study fun and very powerful and effective!
