TwiceToddlers at the Fireproof Bible Study

Last night, my DH and I attended our first Fireproof Bible Study at our church Ministry Center. Our twins were in a separate part of the Ministry Center with other children their age and they had a blast. They got to see some of their friends from Sunday School while Mommy and Daddy learned more about how to communicate better with each other and ways to pray for each other daily.

In the beginning of the study, all who attended sat in a nice, comfy, cozy couch and talked about the last study. Since this was our first study, which is every other Sunday, we just sat and listened to our leaders talk.

Then, we said a prayer before beginning this weeks study session. After praying, we watched a brief segment of the movie, Fireproof, and then from our study guide, talked about the scene and what the main actor Caleb and his Dad talked about. Caleb's Dad began walking towards a cross. The only thing is, the viewers of the movie did not see the cross until the camera was brought outward and the whole scene was visible. It was awesome because his Dad was saying, look to the Cross. Oh, it gives me chills. Everything Caleb was feeling and hurting about was exactly what Jesus went through on this earth. It was like a type and shade of Christ's love for us and the sacrifices He willing made for our sinful nature.

After discussing this scene, there was more that we talked about from this segment. Of course, this was the most powerful segment from this study session. Then, we broke up into male/female groups and did our individual parts of the study.

After the separate study sessions, we got back together, prayed and picked up our kids.

Of course, this is just a condensed version of what really happened.

Then, once home, as husband and wife, we are to do the couples portion together.

My DH and I really like this bible study. I hope it will be an eye opener to us and what we need in our relationship to keep is strong and healthy for ourselves, our children and the Lord.

Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken." Ecclesiastes 4:12

God Bless...
