Summer Reading Challenge

Grow in your Christian walk and character as you train like an Athlete, cultivate like a Farmer, and advance like a Soldier. It’s not always easy—muscles may ache, drought may hit, or enemies may advance—but God is for you!

Welcome to

The Resolution

This summer we will be studying the unique challenges faced by the Athlete, the Farmer, and the Soldier, and we will learn the specific character traits that propel each one forward as we complete specific activities related to each.

The Athlete, the Farmer, and the Soldier each have different activities listed under three categories: Mental, Physical, and Spiritual. Try to pick one activity from each category to accomplish daily! For example, as an Athlete you could pick the Mental category and read a portion of a Lamplighter book, then as a Farmer pick the Physical category and go for a hike while paying special attention to God’s creation, then as a Soldier pick the Spiritual category and do a study on the word soldier. Each activity is worth points. Track your points and keep a daily journal entry (journal page downloads available below).

The Resolution provided a great springboard for helping them notice opportunities to serve others. They started noticing needs more independently and then asking about how we could help meet those needs. It was amazing to see the growth in my children! I was thankful to find a summer reading program that emphasized spiritual growth that I could do with my kids.”

“This year, I saw myself in many of the books’ characters in a new light. As I have been growing in my walk with the LORD, I notice new things even as I read old favorites. One of the encouragements to me as a young man is to ‘KEEP thy heart with all diligence, for out of it are the issues of life.'”

Highschool Track

“In doing the Lamplighter Summer Reading Challenge, my son has grown in his desire to read books as well as offer to help his siblings with their duties and responsibilities. I have also seen him grow in taking initiative.”
