There are many types of learning. There are visual learners who like to read everything. There are audio learners who like to hear everything. There are kinetic learners who learn best when they are moving.
As a homeschool mom, I’ve learned that not one child fits neatly into any one category. They have a little of each. Guess what? So does their mom.
As a former perfectionist, I have learned that the best learning comes from the desire to learn. So that sounds really weird and confusing. But what I mean is that when a child WANTS to learn something, they will devour the information. For example, Boo loved the Percy Jackson series, so she has devoured any and all information she can find on Greek and Roman mythology. Little Bit loves building with Legos and playing on the computer, so she got the Lego Mindstorm kit. (Side Note: It’s actually for both girls, but Little Bit works with it more.) I have learned a lot about cooking and baking, because it is something I enjoy.
So when exactly did I lose my desire to learn more about God’s word? Or more specifically, when did I lose my enjoyment in learning about God’s word?
Yesterday, I started a new venture. I started art journaling in my Bible. It’s an interesting concept, but it really appeals to my creative nature. It’s something I hope I can learn and take many places in my studies, and hopefully it will renew my love of the Word.
