Stone Soup for Five: Bible Study methods with Amy Hale

Bible Study methods with Amy Hale




A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of filming a video interview with Amy Hale (of Instagram fame) as we worked through the second week of Biblical meditation over Psalm 119.  Amy is a wonderful woman of God who deeply loves the Word of God.  It only takes a moment of scrolling through her Instagram page,  to see her love of the Scriptures.



In this video we discussed her time working through the new Meditation 119 guide and then Amy shared examples of  many different styles of study and meditation that she uses.

I had a lot of feedback requesting closer pictures and more information on what she shared, so I gathered them together to hopefully inspire and encourage you in your time studying and meditating on the Bible.

    1. We talked about a "brain dump". This is where you just jot down the things on your mind when you wake up so that your prayer time won't be cut short due to distraction.

  5. Also thank you for sharing. The psalm 119 has changed my bible study. I use the questions from that, additional questions that Amy mentioned etc and am doing things in an artist notebook. Only decoration I add is colored markers for each section. I’ve done SOAP and still do that sometimes, but this meditation method has really opened my eyes in how I study and really makes me think. I have a hard time getting things out of passages and this has really helped. Thank you for all your hard work and the time you put into all of this.

  6. This is an awesome video. I have been a fan of Kari's Bible studies for many years now.
    Thank you so much for sharing Amy's visual way of studying the Psalm 119 Meditation and her other Bible Study methods. It has greatly encouraged me for my own personal Bible study time. It has also encouraged me in a different manner regarding my blog. I don't need to recreate the wheel when there are so many great studies out there already. Instead I will let others know about what is already available.
