Over the years I’ve studied the Bible using many different methods. Some of them I liked and others I didn’t like at all. Bible study methods abound and the style varies just as much as personalities do, they are not a one size fits all.
Today I’m going to share with you a few of my favorite Bible study methods that I’ve used over the years.
In Depth Bible Study
I love to learn from Bible scholars, thus I find in depth Bible study to be my personal favorite Bible study method. I love my set of Matthew Henry Commentaries and when I’m using this method you can find me buried with them, notebooks, concordances and more!
Currently my life schedule/responsibilities don’t allow for much of this Bible study method, but I love the times when I am able to use it.
Often times God will lay a particular word on my heart and He directs me to study it throughout His word. At times it may be a word that is personal for me, one for my family, my marriage or my home. Words that I’ve studied in the past include; worship, prayer, tongue, patience, etc.
If you’d like to try this Bible study method you’ll need a concordance, dictionary and a Bible. My friend Stephanie has some wonderful printable Bible word studies here, if you’d like to try this method of Bible study, but are unsure how to start.
Devotion Book Studies
I’ve used many different devotional book studies over the years, while they aren’t a replacement for studying God’s word, they can provide much encouragement or direction that you may need at different times in your life.
This type of Bible study method is a wonderful way to start a women’s Bible study group in your home or you can do them alone as I did.
Good Morning Girls
My current Bible study method (which can easily be used with my favorite method) is Good Morning Girls.
I first discovered GMG as a young (exhausted) mom and fell in love with the grace and ease of Bible study it provided. I found encouragement to be in God’s word daily, no in depth long Bible reading time required and grace if I didn’t complete my daily reading because of a sick baby or overtime at work.
I’m now blessed to be part of the GMG leadership team and am faithfully studying the Bible daily with thousands of women around the world!
We just kicked off a three year Bible study to read through the entire Bible and I’m loving it! If you’d like to find out how we study the Bible, check out our Facebook page and feel free to jump right in with us!
A New Bible Study Method I Want to Try!
Courtney from Women Living Well recently shared this fellow Good Morning Girls’ Bible study method and I would really love to try it! The colors and way she shares what God speaks to her is inspiring!

As I’ve said throughout this series, it isn’t a particular time of day, length of time or Bible study method that God is asking us to use or do. He simply desires to spend time with us and grow our relationship stronger. So, no matter how you study God’s word, just commit to being faithful!
