Bible Study and Character Training

Parents are often asking about resources for bible study, devotions and character training.

Here are some highlights of the resources we have available in physical format in L4U:

Each unit contains 3 lessons on 3 different character traits such as Attentiveness, charObedience and Thankfulness.  For each characteristic included you will find 3 pieces of literature that demonstrate the character trait presented:
1. Bible Story or verse
2. Article about an animal
3. Article about an historical character.
Memory work, games and activities are also included. Master copies for photocopying coloring pages are included.

Each chapter offers a variety of reading, writing, Bible study, and active projects for you plantto choose from for each of your unique sons. Projects in each chapter are listed in order according to increased difficulty. Start work in each area and continue to disciple your children with increasingly more difficult assignments.
Each project is labeled with the school subject it relates to, enabling homeschoolers to easily incorporate projects into their regular school plans.

In this list, we have DVDs and CDs as well as many titles by authors such as:

Apologia – What We Believe series of four books:

Who is God and Can I really Know Him?
Who Am I? And What Am I Doing Here?
Who is my neighbor?
What on Earth Can I Do?

If you are looking for a good study to do with older teens in a group setting, we have:

True U: Does God Exist? 

In this first DVD set of the TrueU series, Dr. Stephen Meyer plays a “philosophical survival game,” pitting four worldviews against one another in the quest to decide which one gives the best answers. Dr. Meyer examines the evidence and provides the tools needed for students to defend their faith and make it their own. This is the perfect resource for students preparing to enter college and a culture that may be hostile to their faith.

True U: Is the Bible Reliable? building the historical case

Who is God, and how can we know Him? The Bible claims to be the direct revelation of our Creator. So if the biblical record is true, it is a primary means by which the God of the universe has revealed Himself to mankind. However, if it can be proved false, then the God of whom it speaks is simply one more pretender in the assembly of gods that man has created.

In Is the Bible Reliable? Dr. Stephen Meyer challenges you to examine the historical and archaeological evidence to determine for yourself the veracity and accuracy of biblical Scripture. Is the Bible true? You decide.

Includes two DVDs, each with five 30-minute lessons, and a 96-page, two-color discussion guide.

We hope this helps you find resources for your student’s needs.
