Faith Journeys Bible Study REVIEW

Disclaimer: I received a FREE copy of this product through the HOMESCHOOL REVIEW CREW in exchange for my honest review. I was not required to write a positive review nor was I compensated in any other way. 

I'm always up for a good bible study so I was excited to get the chance to review Faith Journeys Bible Study Series: Romans Bundle and Faith Journeys Bible Study Series: Philippians by Julie Polanco from Julie Naturally.  I received both of these studies in PDF digital form via a download link.  Both Bible studies are currently available as digital downloads.

Romans Bible Study Bundle

Faith Journeys Bible Study Series: Romans Bundle (97 pages) includes an 8-week study guide, printable scripture memory cards, and themed coloring pages (one for each week). It was easy to download the file and print out the pages.  I chose to bind my study guides. I printed out the memory cards separately, laminated them, then cut them into cards that I can carry with me and use as bookmarks while I am catching up on my reading.  Taping them to the bathroom mirror works well too!!  The coloring pages are included in the study guide and are also sent as a separate file to also be downloaded.  I did not bind these as I hope to either laminate or at least post these in different areas of the house (once I color all of them).

In addition to the PDF download files, you are set up with an account on Julie's website for you to access the videos associated with the Romans bundle Bible study.  There is one video for each week that you watch first.  The videos are approximately 10-12 minutes each.  Each week covers 2 chapters from the book of Romans. There are 6 days of lessons each week and a lesson can be easily completed in about 15-20 minutes.  I tend to spend more time on questions but they are still easily completed in less than 30 minutes.  Romans is such a good book and Julie does a good job in covering it.  Having the scripture memory cards is great and I really liked that I could carry them with me and place them on my bathroom mirror for reminders. Another bonus was the art pages.  Coloring always relaxes the mind.

There are a lot of reflective and contemplative questions throughout the study that I thoroughly enjoyed.  The only issue I had was that the videos were a little foggy and pixelated at times. Not sure if that was my computer/internet or not, but I didn't have trouble with other videos from other sites so I'm not sure what the problem was.

Faith Journeys Bible Study Series: Philippians (45) pages is a 4-week study and does not include any video component (I wonder if there might be video added in the future since the welcome page mentions audiovisuals).  There are scripture memory cards for each week and the study follows the same format as that of the Romans Bible study.  Six lessons per week, approximately 15-20 minute completion time, and bonus art pages.

All Biblical quotes are from the 1984 NIV translation and Julie also used the Moody Bible Commentary and other notes when she compiled this study.  I do recommend Faith Journeys Bible Study Series: Romans Bundle and Faith Journeys Bible Study Series: Philippians by Julie Polanco as I like how she covered the material and best of all I was able to complete my daily lessons in less than 30 minutes and it was still power-packed!
