As a young Christian, I studied the book of James intently. As a matter of fact, the first verses of any length that I ever really memorized were from James 1:2-10. I can still say them today! Aside from the memory verses, I found this book full of practical principles and enlightening instruction. You could say this book helped me put on the walking shoes I needed to travel the Christian road.
Has your family ever considered studying a book of the Bible for a school year? Consider the book of James. Do you have middle schoolers or high schoolers? I would go so far as to say you need the book of James!!
