As we enter this holiday season, I want to invite you to quiet you heart with me. I thought and I prayed about the best way to enter this holiday season, and as I reading the Word, I kept going back to the book of Luke. I couldn’t help but feel that the best way to prepare for the King was to get to know Him on a deeper level, and to drink from the well of His wisdom.
And so our study begins this Monday, November 21st and runs for four consecutive weeks, ending December 17th.
There are 24 chapters in Luke. Therefore, I suggest reading one chapter per day/six days a week bringing you to a complete four-week study.
If we’re going too fast for you—slow down. Go at your own pace. If it takes you two months to complete the study, so be it. This isn’t homework, this is an opportunity to fellowship with God, to quiet your heart during the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, and to find rest in His presence.
There’s a FREE study guide below in which I have provided you with a list of questions for each chapter. This doesn’t mean that you have to tackle every single question. You might want to answer two or three of them each day, and some days you may prefer to answer them all. The questions are simply a method to get you thinking, cross referencing, and rightly dividing the Word. For many of the questions, our answers could be different as God is speaking to each of us in a unique way.
Please note: The study guide is 85 pages. If that is too much for you to print, simply read it on your computer, and record your thoughts in a journal.
How do I participate in this study?
It’s simple. If you haven’t done so already, download a copy of the FREE Bible study guide. You’ll find the download further down this page.
On Mondays I’ll have new printables for you including scripture cards, week-at-a-glance, and a coloring page. Friday is a recap of the week, and my thoughts on the study.
During the week, you’ll study at home, following the outline of the study guide. You can study alone, with your family, or with a group of friends.
In addition to my posts here, you can find me on Facebook. Unlike the other studies, I’ll be posting my notes Monday to Saturday. I’ll also open up the discussion for you to share your thoughts.

Please note, this book isn’t a Bible study–it’s a 30-day prayer journal designed to draw you closer to God through the holiday season. The whimsical illustrations throughout make this journal a precious keepsake you’ll want to reflect back on year after year.
Each day provides you with space to compose a prayer and record memories. The warmth of this journal captures the joy of the holiday season, while daily encouragement and holiday tips help to quiet your soul and point you to Christ.
The journal also includes the Christmas story from Luke chapter 2 (KJV).
As I was putting this book together I couldn’t wait until I could have one in my hands. It’s so cute, so warm and so fun. I’m reminded of my teenage years when I kept a diary beside my bed. I was excited to write in it, and I’m excited to write in this journal too!
Here’s a little a peek inside the book. I think you’ll love it!
FYI… This is all compiled using adorable clip art, so don’t give me credit for the images.
And here’s the back cover, reminding us of the reason for the season!
