An Easy and Intriguing Way for the Sandwich Generation to “Read” Through The Word of God This Year

by Kaye Swain

Happy Holidays and Happy New Years Eve clip art for the Sandwich Generation grandparents and grandkidsHappy New Year's Day 2012 to all of us in AND out of the Sandwich Generation. Have you made any New Year's Resolutions? I usually avoid those but this year I did sort of make one.

They hear the word and accept it and bear fruit, thirty, sixty, and a hundredfold." Mark 4:20

NIV Life Application Study Bible Large PrintI have been really enjoying listening to the verse by verse Bible studies taught by fellow baby boomer and grandfather, Pastor Joe Focht, of Calvary Chapel Philadelphia. He is interesting, funny, insightful, and shares such intriguing insights and historical details as he works through the Bible, including sharing words of encouragement and inspiration for grandparents as well as parents. Since it looks like they have worked through the whole Bible more than once and have the studies all available at their site, I decided it was time for me to work through the Bible again, as well, by listening to his studies daily on my iPod. And I'm hereby inviting you to join me. :) 

Blessed are those who hear the word of God and observe it." Luke 11:28

If you have a SmartPhone, you might also enjoy the church's app which offers the option to pick through any of the verse by verse Bible studies as well. An easy and powerful way to study the Bible through the year. In fact, my grade-school grandkid listened to him with me in the car and enjoyed him as well. 

Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of the prophecy, and heed the things which are written in it; for the time is near. Revelation 1:3

So if you're looking for an interesting way to spend the year, growing in the Lord, that works well with the multigeneral issues juggling we do, I highly recommend Pastor Joe Focht and his verse by verse Bible studies. A practical way to grow spiritually for the busy Sandwich Generation.

Spiritual Sundays are full of devotionals with encouraging Bible verses to bless the Sandwich Generation boomers and seniors busy caring for the elderly parents while babysitting grandchildren

P.S. Thank you so much for your comments. I enjoy them very much and read each one. I also love the grand ideas so many of you share that help and encourage other readers. I do my best to reply to them all but value your patience when that isn\'t possible.
