Perhaps spread them through the Lenten weeks, or use them for a concentrated study during the Holy Week.
Disciples of Christ Bible Homeschool Art Lessons
Nana has brand new lessons releasing to our You ARE an ARTiST Clubhouse members over the next weeks! There are lessons for all 12 disciples. A Disciples of Christ Unit Study for Your Homeschool. A great way to begin adding Bible study into your daily homeschool routine might be to start with Lent or Holy Week leading up to Easter. Lent is a 40-day period observed by Christians to commemorate the forty days that Jesus fasted in the desert. You can find the full story in the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke. By reading the Bible and studying all that led up to the Resurrection of Christ, you and your children can build a solid habit of reading God’s Word together.
