If you're a piano teacher expecting to find teaching tips, this post might surprise you.
Yes, I LOVE sharing ideas for teaching piano! But truthfully, faith and family are also important to me, so sometimes I'll write about those topics too.
And truthfully, most of us work from home, so "business" and "life" sort of overlap, right? (If you're a "Piano Mom" like me, then I know you get it!)
Today I'm sharing some ideas to jazz up your quiet time. ("Jazz" used intentionally right there!) If you're anything like me, it's all too easy to get into a rut. Summer is the perfect time to try something new!
Here are 4 easy ways that you can change up your Bible study:
1. Entrusted: Beth Moore Online Bible Study
Entrusted is an online Bible Study sponsored by Lifeway Women and it's entirely FREE! Well...you will need to get the workbook which sells for 12.99, but the teaching videos are all included at no charge.
The 5-week study revolves around 2 Timothy and it kicks off June 15. You read more about it and register here.
Note: This might surprise some of you who are fans of Beth Moore, but I've never done one of her Bible studies. I've read her books and even attended one of her simulcasts, but I've never actually taken part in a Bible Study. Have you done one? I'd love to hear your thoughts!
2. Write the Word Journals
Lara Casey has created Write the Word Journals that might be perfect for your quiet time.
Each journal has scripture selections for you to write out, but there's room for so much more! You'll find space to write down your blessings, a prayer, or anything else that comes to mind.
There are 5 different journals to choose from and they are all lovely. This summer, I chose Cultivating Joy and I'm really enjoying it during my morning quiet time. (Learn how I established my early morning routine here.)
If you're looking to cultivate joy, faith, gratitude, hope, or renewal, then you'll love these books.
3. She Reads Truth - Romans
If you're interested in studying Romans, She Reads Truth is kicking off their summer study on June 5.
You can access the free reading plan and daily devotional here. Poke around on their website and you'll see that you can also access past reading plans.
They also have a great app that you should check out AND there's a He Reads Truth app (and website!) for the men in your life!
4. His Mercy is New Scripture Writing Plans
I discovered Candace Crabtree about a year ago when Sara Campbell and I interviewed her for Upbeat Piano Teachers. Little did I know then, that I'd become a HUGE fan of hers - and it goes WAY beyond piano!
Candace has a heart that shines for the Lord in all she does. Personally, I just love her Scripture Writing Plans. They'll get you in the Word and keep you on track!
Best of all? They're completely FREE! Just print the plan, grab a notebook and a pen!
