SOAP printables

This post is a part of my 10 Day of Teaching God’s Word series.

About two years ago, Mom’s Toolbox introduced me to the SOAP method for studying Bible verses. S.O.A.P. is a way to help you stop and reflect on a verse or Bible passage that you are reading.

It’s really such a simple tool and one that is great for children to use as well!

What does S.O.A.P. stand for?

Scripture ~ Write the verse that is the focus.

Observation ~ Write down 1-2 observations from that Scripture passage. What do you hear God saying to you?

Application ~ How does the passage apply to you right now in your daily life?

Prayer ~ Write a prayer based on the passage.

I put together a SOAP printable for our girls to use when studying verses. There are two sheets to a page, along with the S.O.A.P. acronym in case kids need a little reminder for the sections.

And really, adults can use them too! I just know that our kids like the helps and had to make it cute. Feel free to download a copy of the SOAP Printables for Studying Verses and share with your friends.

  2. Samanthaleh says

    How do you download the printable – my girls love our Bible study and would get so much out of it by observing it and reflecting on the ojbective meaning / relation to their lives.  They write beautiful prayers – and like to – thanks so, so much!

    • not sure what is going on. The link is showing up on my end. I’m ‘republishing’ it right now. You can click on either the image or where it says ‘download now’.

  4. I have heard of the “Soap” idea before, but this is great to have it for them to use!  Thanks again for wonderful ideas!

  5. Jolanthe…i am not able to directly email through links, but i just wanted to THANK you for so generously sharing all of your activities.  My three year old son and i just had a very special time with the Star Wars preschool pack.  We cut out the character pictures and glued them on card stock and played memory.  there is so much great stuff on all your sites and looks like i’ll be spending lots of time here.  Blessings to you and your willingness to bless other families.

    We love your BFIAR printables and have used them all.   You haven’t updated in a while, do you have a date that I can mark on my calendar of when to check back in to your site?  Thanks so much, I really do love your site!  A

    • I have been so busy with other things that I haven’t had a chance to work on more right now ~ but I do hope to. I haven’t set dates because inevitably something comes up ~ like traveling to Africa. :) I’m working on them as we are ready to do a unit. Sorry I don’t have anything more concrete for you!
