God Gave Us the Bible {Kindergarten Art Project}

A few weeks ago, we covered "Who Wrote the Bible?" in our weekly question and answers.  We talked about various authors of the Bible such as David, Moses, and Paul, but ultimately, we acknowledge that Scripture comes from God Himself. For the Kindergarten small group activity, one teacher prepared a poster with the words "GOD GAVE US THE BIBLE" written in white crayon.   Of course, when the kids first saw the poster, it looked completely blank.  However, as the kids painted over the … [Read more...]

A.D. 30 by Ted Dekker {Book Review}

I'm not a big fiction reader, but every once in awhile, it's nice to curl up with a good book.  One that doesn't require extensive underlining and note taking.  :)  So when I heard that Ted Dekker was releasing a new book, I was happy to take a look.

Books of the Bible: Personal Pentateuch Banner

Daniel Chooses Not To Eat

Daniel Chooses Not To Eat

This month, we took a closer look at Daniel in our Children's Church program. Coloring Page from Ministry to Children In Daniel 1, Daniel and his friends refuse to eat food offered to idols and opt for vegetables and water instead.  Ironically, my husband and I had just begun the "Daniel Fast" in order to pray for Rock the Lakes, so I had a little more insight into the pressure and temptation Daniel might have faced! For our craft, we had kids pick out healthy food (we were going for just … [Read more...]
