What is Write Through the Bible?

One workbook. 15 minutes a day. Give your child practice in…

  • Handwriting
  • Bible memorization
  • Vocabulary
  • Dictation

Christian parents who want their children to memorize Scripture can use Write Through the Bible as a way to reinforce the memorization of key passages of the Bible. As a child uses multiple senses to internalize Scripture—eyes, ears, hands, and mouth—the Word of God is more firmly planted in the heart.

Plus, these copywork workbooks help give a child daily practice in handwriting, reinforcing letter and word spacing, as well as punctuation and capitalization.

    We are using the Philippians books, both the regular and Junior workbooks. It’s a nice way to cover handwriting in our homeschool. It would be great if the junior books came with perforated pages. We love the regular book for the big kids, but the junior book is really hard for kids to work in. It’s a shame because the content is great!

    • Trisha says:

      I agree. I wish the workbooks were perforated or we could get them books spiral bound. Unfortunately, the only places I’ve been able to find to print and bind them that way would cost 4x what they currently cost to have done which would make them completely cost prohibitive for families. One easy thing you can do is to take them it to an office supply store, like Staples or Office Max, and have them cut off the binding and hole punch the book. This costs around $5. Not ideal, but better!

    The writing books are great. My kids are grown but I have several friends homeschooling that I will tell about this great tool. Just thought I would mention another alternative to the perforation request. There have been several times between my daughter and myself where we have purchased college texts that came without hard or soft covers and were hole punched and shrinkwrapped. It had the cover page on regular paper but it was intended to be put in a three ring binder with one of the clear pockets on the front. I wonder if the whole process would be more inexpensive to make rather than having perforations and binding. Maybe your printer wouldn’t up your quantity to do both since all they have to do is leave a portion out of the binding process and hole punch the rest. Maybe you could do the shrink wrap part with a simple heat gun kit. Just a thought 🙂

    • Trisha says:

      Thank you for the thought, yes we’re looking into this option too! Currently the printer we use ONLY offers perfect bound books, but we’re hoping within the next couple we can have some other options. I like the idea of having them printed, hole-punched, and unbound.

    OK, so I have repeatedly tried to gain access to the free Bible memory songs after subscribing repeatedly with no success. Just making circles.

    Hello Luke and Trisha,

    You do not need to post this message to your website, I was just viewing the handwriting curriculum out of curiosity; I would have loved to have this many years ago when I was homeschooling my children;

    I LOVE your post about 5 things to teach my boys about abortion; I’ve been praying about how I could contribute to the cause of promoting pro life awareness;

    Since you have a post about the Apostles Creed and Nicene Creed, I’m curious to know what faith tradition you practice?

    You are welcome to email me, I do not do facebook at this time;

    GOD BLESS you and your children

      The big bundles are currently only available in digital format. The softcover workbooks must be ordered individually.
