A Bible Reading Plan for Little Ones {The Attributes of God}

All right folks- I've got to be honest. Three months into sharing free printable Bible reading plans for family worship, and my family hasn't completed an entire one yet. We are really faithful with it for a week or two, then fall off the wagon for another week or two. Kids get sick, parents get sick, and in many other ways, life happens.

But we are persevering in our efforts, and I'm hoping to read this month's entire plan with my kids!

Of course I read and select all the passages personally before posting them, but I want to be more consistent in reading them daily to my kids {ages 4, 2, and 5 months} as the month progresses.

Maybe you can be encouraged to know you're not alone if you haven't quite "arrived" at consistency in the Word as a family?

I find it difficult to select appropriate passages. I want to challenge and stretch our kids in their listening abilities, and I know they hear more than we think they do while they are wiggling and fidgeting... but I also want to make them bite-size and doable. I don't want us as parents to be completely discouraged because we are reading this loooonnnng passage and no one is hearing it over the bouncing and whispering and giggling.

If you use the plan, please email me {thepurposefulwife@gmail.com} with your feedback! It would be invaluable.


This month our topic is The Attributes of God. I tried to keep each week day reading down to just a few key verses. For the parents, be careful to define each attribute to your kids, and give them an age-appropriate understanding of context and application. I highly recommend A.W. Pink's little book, The Attributes of God as a complimentary resource for mom and dad's personal devotions.

It's a four week plan, one passage every Monday-Friday. I've chosen 10 attributes of God and picked two passages for each attribute, one Old Testament and one New. The goal is to begin introducing who God is and what He is like to your toddlers and preschoolers- from the actual Word of God.

I hope that it blesses both you and your little ones as you grow in understanding of who our great God is. Such contemplation's should definitely push us to more fervent worship!
