Open My Eyes Classroom KitThank you to everyone who participated in our August 19 contest to win a free Classroom Kit of our new youth curriculum, Open My Eyes: A Study for Youth on Studying the Bible. It was so encouraging to read how you have pursued studying the Bible…both the easier and harder to understand books.

Now Available: God’s Wisdom + Giveaway

God's Wisdom Cover_blogEvery day children are confronted with the call of wisdom and the call of foolishness. Which call will they answer?

God’s Wisdom, a newly released book by Sally Michael, uses the words of Proverbs to explore these two paths. As parents guide their children through this book, they will discover the joys of wisdom and discern the destruction of foolishness.

Each person starts out on the path of foolishness because we are born with foolishness in our hearts. Only God can incline a child’s heart toward the path of wisdom—and he can use your example and diligent instruction to do it.

Sally Michael seamlessly weaves New Testament and Old Testament stories together to teach biblical wisdom in a way that is clear, fun, and engaging for children. Her compelling word pictures and analogies make difficult concepts easier to grasp.
—Marty Machowski, Pastor, Author of Long Story Short and The Gospel Story Bible

Once again, Sally Michael has used her fervent love for Christ and her keen understanding of the Scriptures to help parents and children. . . . I’m very excited to put this book into the hands of parents.
—Deepak Reju, Associate Pastor, Capitol Hill Baptist Church, Washington, D.C.

God’s Wisdom is a full-color, illustrated book that includes 26 chapters with application questions and activity suggestions. The stories are written to elementary aged children. This is the fourth book in the Making Him Known series, which also includes God’s Names, God’s Promises, and God’s Wisdom.

To learn more about God’s Wisdom, read the first chapter or take a look at the table of contents. If you want to help children find the path of wisdom, order a copy now.

Free Christmas Lesson

12-13 Blog Post 300During the month of December, it is easy to get pulled in a million different directions…school programs, shopping, parties, decorating the tree, traveling, visiting family, wrapping gifts, building snowmen…but it can be difficult to find time to focus on the true reason for Christmas.

Our challenge for your family is to set aside an hour in the next two weeks to learn about the miraculous event of Jesus the Savior being born. In most Christmas stories, the focus is always on the tiny baby, wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. Children relate well to that vision of God as a small, touchable and knowable baby Jesus. But, it is not the end of God’s revelation of His Son. Baby Jesus will grow up into a Man, the perfect Son of God, and His obedience will lead Him to a most painful, undeserved death on the cross.

She will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.—Matthew 1:21

To help you and you family focus on the bigger picture of Christmas, Children Desiring God is giving you a free copy of “Jesus the Savior is Born” which is a lesson in our revised version of Jesus, What a Savior. This lesson focuses on three main ideas:

  • God loves His people and desires to save them from their sin.
  • God was faithful to send Jesus as the promised Savior.
  • God reveals His greatness to humble people.

The free lesson can be downloaded as a PDF here: Jesus the Savior is Born. We pray it will be a blessing as you and your family celebrate our Savior this Christmas.

This free lesson includes the Lesson Material, Lesson Visuals, Student Workbook, Optional Activities and Growing in Faith Together pages. You may print out or make copies of this lesson for use in you home, church or school. Enjoy!

 

 

All New Visuals for Jesus, What a Savior! + Giveaway

Reaching the Heart + Friday Contest

JWSWorkbookBlogPost_275x555

When children come to Sunday school, we hope they will learn many things about God. While facts are good and important for them to learn, head knowledge is not the ultimate goal of our curriculum. We want to help children move from head knowledge to heart knowledge. Children not only need to know the truth of God’s Word, but more importantly, they need to respond to and act on it.

Students Workbooks are the tool we have designed for this very purpose. Not only do workbooks help reinforce the main ideas presented in the lesson, using them in a small group setting will help engage children and enhance the application process.

In the revised Jesus, What a Savior! Student Workbook, kindergartners will enjoy hands-on activities such as Dot-to-dot, coloring, matching, mazes, tracing letters, and cutting and pasting. While children are completing the workbook pages, small group leaders engage them in discussion based on questions provided in the Teacher’s Guide.
