The Bible is God’s Word to his people, so it has some important things to say! But let’s be honest … it can also be sort of puzzling. Now you can get relief for your confused cranium. Here’s how: Pick up this book, based on the NIV translation. Look up your questions. Learn about heaven, earth, angels, sin, creation, and more. Understand what the creator of the universe---your creator---is saying to you!
A big thank-you to Zondervan for sending me this book for free in exchange for an honest review. I was no paid for this review and all opinions are 100% mine.
I was excited to recieve this book because I thought it would be a fun addition to add to our Children's church service. The first thing I did was check what the book said about the holy spirit. I was a bit sad because it was very vague and as much as I understand each and every denominiation looks at the Holy Spirit a little bit different the answers for Holy Spirit were dull and lacked the power that comes from Holy Spirit. I think in most questions the answers are very brief which is ok because it allows the adult to answer questions more detailed and theological according to the person. I am still not 100% sure if I will use this in children's church or not just based on knowing each of my teachers might not be ready to jump in and explain in more detail some of the questions. I do still like all the variety of questions in this book and the book includes a index so it is very easy to find a topic for the question.
The book is only $6.99 and can be purchased from Zondervan.

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly. I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos. Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you. This was a super easy one for those little hands. I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting. The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper. EASY, but they enjoyed it! :) It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge! :) I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
MY MEMORIES SUITE Review and giveaway! (#1 rated scrapbook software) The above is one of the scrap pages I have created. Super easy and super fast. I only took a couple minutes to create a 8 page photo book. I am still going to do some more with adding more embellishments! The below is one I created all from scratch and it only took me about 5 minutes! :) SO EASY! Here is a great video explaining more about the product. There are also tutorials available on youtube.com I am not sure if you are like me but I have spent hours online trying to upload photos to the web to place them into something I was trying to create. THE BIGGEST BONUS to My Memory Suite is the fact that it is downloaded to your computer so you do not have to wait forever for a picture to upload! It made my experience much quicker then other programs I have used online. The scrapbook software was very easy to download on my computer and did not take long to learn how to create. :) One feature t
