Storytime: Our New Naptime Devotions Book

Storytime: Our New Naptime Devotions Book

We've been doing nap time devotions with the kids for about a year and a half now.  We started with the Preschooler's Bible and have making our way through several books since then including an Awana Cubby book and the Sweet Dreams Princess Bible.  Recently, we've begun using Storytime: A 52-Week Bible Storybook for Families.   It's designed to be used as a weekly resource, but we've been reading from it every day and the kids are really enjoying it (ages 2 & 4).  I appreciate … [Read more...]

Stickers Through the Bible: Review and Recommendations

Stickers Through the Bible: Review and Recommendations

This year, we started a brand new curriculum from Kidology called "Stickers Through the Bible".    Stickers Through the Bible is a revolutionary new Bible curriculum for non-readers. By placing beautiful stickers into their Bibles, kids gain a love for God’s Word while gaining an understanding of the overall Story of the Bible. Just before I discovered this hot off the press curriculum, my friend Paulette and I were lamenting that there was no "in between" Bible for kids. You go straight from … [Read more...]

Kyle Idleman’s New Book: AHA!  (Book Review)

Kyle Idleman’s New Book: AHA! (Book Review)

Last year, my husband started raving about a book called Not a Fan by Kyle Idleman.  He's not much of a reader, so for him to take notice of a book, it had to be good.  I picked it up and was thoroughly impressed.  It was compelling, inspiring, and convicting.    We even ended up using it as a curriculum for our entire Sunday School program. So of course, when I was invited to be a part of the book tour for Kyle's new book AHA, I jumped at the chance.    The "AHA" is based on three … [Read more...]

Power Bible: Book Review

Power Bible: Book Review

If you've been reading this blog long, you'll know I'm a big fan of the Action Bible. I love the stunning graphics and the poignant emotions you can see in the character's faces.  I love how it helps kids to really visualize the Bible and how it forces long-time Bible readers to really feel the stories they have  read so many times.  Of course, there are a few drawbacks.  Some of the pictures in this graphic novel are well, graphic.  There's blood.  There's intense emotion. There's some scary … [Read more...]

God in Action VBS (Review)

God in Action VBS (Review)

With a glimpse of warmer weather today, I'm finally starting to think of summer and of course, for many churches, that means Vacation Bible School!  Our church doesn't run a traditional VBS (read about that decision here), but I do love using VBS curriculum to shake things up a bit in the summer and bring some fresh energy to the program.   I know the Vacation Bible School model is still hugely effective for many churches, so I wanted to be sure to share this incredible program with … [Read more...]

Children’s Catechism: Getting Started

Children’s Catechism: Getting Started

This week we're officially starting a new curriculum in our Wednesday night Kids' Club program.  I really wanted to "get back to basics" this year and dig deep into both God's Word and the core tenets of a Biblical worldview.    I found the Kids' Quest curriculum by Great Commission Publications recently and decided to give it a try.  I really like the content, but the "Small Group" component is a little lacking, so I'll be digging around for some supplemental material and posting it here. … [Read more...]
