Girls' Devotion Book for 2012

All the books have been claimed, and I will be sending them out Monday.


I had originally made this book available to those doing the Fall Challenge, and each of those girls will automatically get a copy.

But I have six other copies that I will send to girls 10-14 (more or less, older adoptive children may also benefit and younger readers with strong comprehension skills as well) who will write a review of the book and post it on amazon.com, christianbooks.com, their blog, facebook or wherever (unless of course you hate the book, then don't write a review!) But more importantly than getting the word out through reviews, I'm excited about the content. It was a fun book to write, and I learned a lot about Bible women researching it. There are some amazing women in the Bible who dealt with jealousy, sibling rivalry, unfulfilled dreams, abuse, peer pressure and more. There were godly women, heroines and villains. There are well known women like Rachel and Ruth and lesser known ones like Caleb's daughter. And we can learn something from all of them.

Leave me a comment if you are a fall challenge participant and want a copy or you are a 10-14 year old girl who'd like to read through the book next year. It has 366 devotions--one for each day of the year and an extra for Leap Year.

Learning About the Bible

The past two Sunday evenings I got to talk to children about the Bible.
With the younger group, we call it Adventuring through the Bible and wear our adventure hats. We start by talking about four things that make the Bible special.

The phone stands for: God told men what to write.


We talk about how God used ordinary men to write the Bible--fishermen, a tax collector, a cup bearer, prophets, shepherds, kings, a doctor and prophets (s0me of those were shepherds too).

Then we load the animals on the ark.












And we marched around the walls of Jericho.



Did two crafts


This is the older group. We do some of the same things, but we don't do Noah or Joshua.



The older kids had to move the frogs out of Egypt using a spoon held in their mouths.


It's not as easy as it looks!


And they had a race to see who could put the books of the Bible together first.
They also learned the twelve C's of the Bible-they take you from Genesis to Revelation. And we did a couple of crafts.




My best helper!


If you are a girl age 5-13 and you want to learn more about the Bible, join our fall challenge. Just go back and read the past few posts to find out what we're doing.

This is the craft from the first chapter of Just for Me: The Bible.
