My family has been using The Picture Smart Bible this year as our Bible study. It is such a flexible program and a wonderful way to help children get an overview of the Bible.
The Picture Smart Bible is a Bible study geared for 4th grade on up (though they are currently working on a K-3rd edition which should be released in 2014.) It uses a master drawing sheet with symbols, items to trace, and captions to write in order to help children (and adults) remember the important points in each book of the Bible. You do not need to know how to draw to do this program! In fact, you don’t really draw— you trace and color. 🙂
I wrote a little about The Picture Smart Bible earlier in the year, and The Curriculum Choice has a great review of The Picture Smart Bible as well.
The Picture Smart Bible curriculum comes in two volumes – Old Testament and New Testament – that can be purchased as a set or one at a time. The curriculum comes as a PDF download, a printable CD or a hole-punched set of pre-printed pages that you put in a binder.
***They will be having a Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale for 35% off the curriculum! Follow their Facebook page for details.***
I am giving away the Old Testament Manual (pre-printed pages) (a $66 value!) U.S. entries only. Enter via Rafflecopter below.

I love Psalm 90:17–Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us, and establish the work of our hands upon us; yes, establish the works of our hands.

I really don’t have a favorite verse but my favorite story is the samaritan woman.
This looks like a great way to keep my son interested in Bible reading!
Um favorite bible verse? How do I choose? My verse for today is Galations 2:20 I am crucified with Christ, nevertheless I live, yet not I but Christ liveth in me. And the life which I now live in the flesh, I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
My favorite verse is Jeremiah 29:11 – “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lords, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.”
I know it’s a common favorite – but it became especially meaningful when my fourth child was born – expecting health – and he suddenly needed open heart surgery. We didn’t know his future. This verse got us through!
I have wanted this Bible curriculum a long time! I’ll have to watch for the sale – if I don’t win. 🙂

My favorite verse is Psalm 62:8 “Trust in Him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us.”
Jasmine Kerr says
He said to him, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the greatest and most important command. The second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself. Matthew 22:37-39

I think it would be John 3:16, because I still remember the feeling when I memorized it for VBS. I was so proud and felt like a Big kid.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean NOT to your own understanding. Acknowledge Him in all you do and He will direct your path. Prov 3-5
Colossians 1:17 He is before all things and in him all things hold together.
I have some visual learners, so I’m interested in this one! I’m definitely interested in if they come out with a K-3rd version, too.
One of my favorite verses: John 16:33 – “I have told you these things so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But, take heart! I have overcome the world.”
Shannon A says
Hmm . . . favorite verse? I love the book of 1 John. A lot of verses!
Isaiah 40:31 “but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”
Isaiah 40:31 Those who wait upon the LORD will renew their strength. they will run and not grow weary; they will walk and not grow faint.
Every good gift is from above.
Cassie Webster says
My favorite verse is one that I hold special in my heart. My husband sent it to us while we were far apart and it means so much to me. 1 Corinthians 13:4–8a
We have so many favorites it is hard to choose – “Trust in the Lord with all your heart….” gets used alot here
Favorite Bible Verse:
I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all this through him who gives me strength.
