My youngest son loves going to Church. On Sunday morning he is the first one up and always bouncing around trying to get the rest of us out of the door. My oldest has hit that age where he fights me on going. Not because he doesn't love God or know God's love, but because he just wants to sleep in and play games. I force him to go and every time he has a blast and he is happy that he went.
They just started something new at my Church and it is called Mission Minded kids, I am not 100% sure what goes on there..... But I do know my oldest SON loves it! The past few months he has been the first one up trying to force all of us out the door faster. As a mom it warms my heart to see him trying to grow closer to God and wanting to know more. As a mom I do everything in my power to help him. Which is why I was so excited when The Bible Explorer's Guide arrived at my house
The Bible Explorer’s Guide lets children come up close and personal with everyday life during Bible times through photos, maps, and illustrations illuminating, people, places, objects, and buildings of the Bible. What did Noah’s Ark really look like? Who was David and whom did he fight? How did 1st century citizens of Jerusalem live? Each two-page spread is filled with images that bring history alive and drawings that help bring life to people and places that we can only read about. With fascinating, brief text and full-color captivating images, this is a reference that kids will come back to again and again. A great addition to any home or school library.
Once my son picked up this book he just couldn't put it down. And he even showed his younger brother stuff and was trying to teach him!! Not only is he in God's word, but he is also sharing it! (Yes this was such a proud mama moment) The Bible Explorer's Guide gets kids excited and answer some of those "Why and how" questions that they have.
