Most mornings, I stumble out of bed, pull on my robe, and settle into my cozy Bible study nook while nursing my
coffee IV first cup of coffee.
Over the years, I’ve come to cherish this time in the Word because I enjoy my little Bible study nook!
Years ago I read a book (I forget which one) that suggested creating a cozy space for Bible study – even if it only meant lighting an aromatic vanilla bean candle!
Any mom can create a Bible study nook. It can even be a corner of your couch.
And I have a confession to make.
My Bible study nook is the corner of my couch.
I’m going to share how to set up a simple Bible study station you can enjoy, but first, I want to explain why you should do this.
