The Simple Study Binder


When I first learned about inductive study, it lit me aflame for the Bible, and I began printing off pages of scripture from my computer and taking notes like crazy. I studied the Bible inductively in my personal study, in discipleship, and as I led Bible studies. Eventually, I ended up with A LOT of papers, and I didn’t want to lose any of those precious notes! Enter: The Simple Study Binder.

Now I keep all my “Bible stuff” in the same place—a giant binder divided into Old Testament and New Testament. It’s simple and easy—just enough structure that things are manageable but not so much structure that I get overwhelmed. Even if the things I’m doing aren’t necessarily inductive (like sermon notes!), they can still be stored in the binder, and it’s fun to see a personal “commentary” of sorts begin to take shape. Want to know more? You can see the Instagram story that inspired the listing by checking the “highlights” on my Instagram account. There you’ll be able to see how I print scripture from my computer for all that good note-taking! (For the tech-savvy: Just copy-paste from and format double-spaced with big margins!)

This digital download includes all you need to start studying the Bible inductively in your own Simple Study Binder (except, ahem, the binder):
