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)

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...]

The God Puzzle {Book Review and Giveaway}

The God Puzzle {Book Review and Giveaway}

I've been browsing around for new curriculum for a few months now.  Even though our current curriculum has some great elements and is a lot of fun, I never felt like it was accomplishing what my vision was for the ministry.  As I mentioned in this post about measuring success in ministry, I want kids to grow in their understanding of God and the Bible and have this understanding impact their life. I stumbled upon the Praise Factory curriculum and loved the concept.  I don't think it's the … [Read more...]
