Bible Bedtime Stories

Bible Bedtime Stories are simple and easy quick-read stories that you can share with your child straight out of God’s Word. It’s another great part of a bedtime ritual. Children need consistency but also variety. The consistency is that you read a bedtime story each night…the variety is that you use different kinds of stories on different nights and what better story is there than the stories that God has given us in His Word. What a great way for children to know and understand the heroes of the Bible better.

The sample below will walk you through stories found in Gospel of John. It’s a great way to start a Bedtime Bible-reading habit:

The Gospel of John–15 Readings

Use Your Own Experiences as Bedtime Stories

Children love to hear about your “adventures” and experiences when you were a child. They need to hear about your mistakes and what you learned from them. They also need to hear about your successes and to know that you experienced many of the same things that they experience every day–i.e., fear, insecurity, good and bad friendships, bullies, a desire to have or do something, dreams about the future, etc.

Use the following guide to help stir your memory and to find Scripture verse that might match some of the stories you have to share.
