Following God’s Path: A Lesson in Bible Study for Kids

Following God’s Path: A Lesson in Bible Study for Kids

While we were studying the Catechism for boys and girls during our midweek program a few months ago, we spent a week learning about Following God's Path. Just as certain things (such as a flashlight, a map, and footprints) help us follow the path in the woods, other things can help us follow God's path. To introduce the topic (and to pique some interest), I taped some animal tracks down on the ground starting at the front door.  Some headed into the sanctuary and some led all the way to the … [Read more...]

The Preschooler’s Bible by V. Gilbert Beers {Book Review}

It's Never Too Early To Read Scripture! You may remember my review for the Toddler Bible back in February.  We've been reading this book on and off throughout the year and though my 2 year old (almost 3) still really enjoys it, you can tell she is ready to move on to something different.  And as Sam Luce says, it's best to stay "one Bible ahead" of your child.   So of course, when I heard Gilbert Beers (the author of the Toddler Bible) had come out with a Preschool Bible, I jumped at the chance … [Read more...]

Little Angel’s Bible Storybook Review

A few weeks ago, I was contacted by Tyndale House Publishers to see if I'd like to take a look the Little Angel's Bible Storybook.  I'm always interested in checking out new kids' Bibles -- both for my own two kids and as a resource for parents in our Children's Ministry program.  So of course, I signed up to check it out. When it arrived, I was struck by one thing on the cover -- Roma Downey's somewhat sultry face on the cover.    I don't know.. maybe it's the smoky eyes or the little half … [Read more...]
