18 Feb How to Use the TEA Bible Study Method
You know Bible study is important, but it’s hard to find a time to start when you’re crazy busy.
Introducing the TEA method!
A 5-10 minute way to study the Bible that gets real, practical results. It’s perfect for moms!
Tip #1: Give God What You Have
Start small when studying the Bible.
Let go of the time clock and give God what you have.
Remember the story of the widow’s offering in Mark 12:41-44:
“Jesus sat down opposite the place where the offerings were put and watched the crowd putting their money into the temple treasury. Many rich people threw in large amounts. But a poor widow came and put in two very small copper coins, worth only a few cents. Calling his disciples to him, Jesus said, “Truly I tell you, this poor widow has put more into the treasury than all the others. They all gave out of their wealth; but she, out of her poverty, put in everything—all she had to live on.”
God sees what season you’re in. He knows that the baby was up 3 times last night, He will bless the time you give Him.

Tip #2: Stay consistent by finding a Routine
First thing in the morning works for a lot of people, but don’t feel like your Bible study time has to be that way.
If you have a new baby, early mornings may not work for you. If your schedule is hectic then use a trigger.
For instances, you can commit to the first ten minutes of your baby’s first nap time of the day.
You can even listen to scripture while you’re driving, then go back and journal when you have a quiet moment.
