We know personal study is something many women want to fit into their busy schedules. Apart from just opening the pages and reading them through, some structure can help you get the most out of your daily study. There are three main ways you can go about it.
Emily Belle Freeman shares how to build a study session for yourself, with your family, or with a group of women.
3 Ways to Add Structure to Your Daily Study
Our personal study can feel a little daunting sometimes. Break it down and take it in small sections. Then do the following:
- Focus on words. Write the ones down that jump off the page, and think about them.
- Pick a phrase that stands out to you and ponder on it all day.
Family study is hard. It can be painful sometimes! Try these things to make it more enjoyable:
- Create a refuge. Make family study a place your kids want to be.
- Consider ages and needs. If you’ve got small children and teenagers, make two study groups. Read with the littles first, and then study with the teens after the younger ones go to bed.
Make a study group with your friends. Do something like a 6 week plan where you learn how to talk about scripture.
- Invite friends with diverse opinions. It will lead to the next point:
- Create a meaningful conversation.
If you are interested in this kind of group study, @multiplygoodness on Instagram is a good follow. They are a group of traditional Christian women and LDS women who have come together to study the Bible. There are great conversations going on over there.
