Do you ever get in a rut with your Bible study? Have you ever wondered “how can I make my Bible study more creative?” Or perhaps, “what’s the most effective way to study the Bible for me?” You won’t want to miss this week’s episode. My friend Pam Farrel and I will talk about how to make our Bible study time more creative! By the time the podcast is over, you’ll want to grab a copy of one of her Bible studies so you can start reaping the benefits!

Quotables from the episode:

  • Creative Bible study helped me memorize scripture better.
  • You can’t think of your problems while you’re in the midst of being creative.
  • Creative Bible study slowed me down to help me pause to ponder God’s word.
  • The most effective way to study the Bible is whatever method gets you engaged and consistent.
  • Hope is waiting expectantly for God to show up and show off for your good and for His glory.
  • The good news is the gospel of Jesus Christ.
  • Good=beautiful, best, bountiful, and blessed

Scripture References:

  • “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, you will know the truth and the truth will set you free.” John 8:31-32
  • “…I [Jesus] came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance [to the full, till it overflows]” John 10:10 AMP
