About the author:
Pam Forster has been passionate about Bible study since she was a teenage girl. Doorposts' parenting charts and books all grew out of her personal (and often desperate) Bible study while raising and homeschooling six children. She writes a blog on parenting, Bible study, and encouragement for moms at www.doorpostsofyourhouse.com
I've followed other "Thirty Days in..." with Pam's online studies (at the blog linked above) and benefited from them. This book is exactly what you find at the same place, but in a small portable, print book. I like to have physical books; the online studies I have a tendency to leave after awhile. They are very helpful but with being busy- and that's who this book is geared toward!- I didn't have the time every day to find the newest post about which book/chapter we were studying. I was often behind. While this book doesn't necessarily mean I won't ever be behind, it doesn't get left out as often as the online.
This is a short book, to the point. It isn't meant to take up a lot of time. It could, of course, if you let it; or if you feel led to drag it out longer. Pam says that it'll take 5 minutes a day- uh, it always takes me longer. First to do the reading (I read or re-read each day), then read what's in the book, then follow the tips. I don't always get all of them because, well, sometimes I only get to do the reading!
Some things that she goes through in this book are:
What Love Is/Isn't
How Jesus is the perfect example of Love
and lots of others
Some of the activities include:
She also sets aside some days for catching up or other 'optional' assignments. On some days it will take very little time at all (like those catch-up days when you don't have to catch-up) because she goes through and tells how to do a search online for something particular. In every lesson there are also optional "For your children" assignments/activities.
I like this little book and think it is a good resource to have. I appreciate it as much as, if not more so, the online versions of the study. This is also available as a set "Busy Mamas Bible Study Kit."
