One of my passions teaching youth the Bible. I have been involved in volunteer and part-time youth ministry for over 18 years. Many times I have found wonderful curriculum available with all of the research, activities, and plans laid out in an easy format. One of my seminary professors encouraged us to use the many resources available and customize it for our group rather spending excess time and effort writing curriculum unless that is our calling or gift. So many good studies are available. When I first began youth ministry, looking for resources meant a trip to the local Christian bookstore, but now most resources are easily accessible with online orders or instant downloads.
I also have a passion for writing (finally started blogging to pursue this passion regularly). Even with ever-expanding availably of resources, I still enjoy writing Bible studies for my own church youth and children when I’ve had the need and the time. As a homeschooling mom or seven, I rely more and more on the wisdom of others, but I still like to use my own occasionally.
I wrote a Bible Study on 2 Peter for our local county-wide Disciple Now. Our Theme, Standing on the Promises, challenges students to know, trust, and obey God’s Word. As I develop my blog and begin sharing more ways for building lasting memories of faith and family, I will post some resources for others who Labor in Ministry. I hope they will be a blessing to your ministry.

As ministers, teachers, volunteers, parents look for Bible study resources I want them to remember, we are all working together to expand the kingdom of Christ.
Only conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or remain absent, I will hear of you that you are standing firm in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel; Philippians 1:27
I would love to hear from you if this study is helpful for your ministry. Please feel free to comment below.
