Is anyone else out there?
As parents and Bible Class teachers we can sometimes feel alone. Children are hearing so many unhealthy messages from the world that we can feel inadequate in sharing the truth of God’s Word with them week after week.
But remember there are others around the world who, like you, love children and have a hope-filled knowledge that God will make an eternal difference in their lives. They, like you, do not know the future challenges the children will face but they believe that the faith they will need comes from hearing God’s Word.
Stand Alone on the Word of God
- Good nutrition and a healthy lifestyle are not enough.
As Jesus reminded Satan, “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.”
- Moral behavior and strong values are not enough.
Jesus described discipleship to the Jews who believed him when he said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
John 8:32, NIV
- Being born into a faithful family is not enough.
The author of Romans talked about the people of God (the Jews) that did not accept his son, Jesus, when he writes, “Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ.”
Romans 10:17, NIV
- We are not enough.
Hopefully, we are doing our best to plant the seeds of faith in the children we teach. But even the Apostle Paul reminded the Corinthians that, “neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but only God, who makes things grow. ”
1 Corinthians 3:7, NIV

I’ve been looking at websites with ideas for teaching Bible stories to children and yours is tops. It has so many great ideas and it’s clear you have a great understanding of how children learn and how to keep their attention and keep it fun while teaching important principles. Thank you so much for this invaluable resource.
Thank you, Cheryl. Your encouragement came at a time when I needed it most. It makes me so happy that you are finding uses for the site.
May God bless you
Wow! I had no idea so many countries were following this site! That makes me feel so encouraged. It is like how I felt as a teenager walking into an auditoriam at the North American Christian Convention. I felt an awe that so many people actually worshiped the same God I did. I grew up a missionary kid in Brazil and was used to people shunning Christains at that time. Thankfully it has changed now, but I know that many people in many of these countries go through huge turmoil to obey and worship our God. So my prayer for all of you is that you rejoice that like Elijah, your not alone in your faith to the one true God and all you do for Him will be known.
I’m so glad you are encouraged by this. It certainly encourages me to hear from all of these people too each week. It is great to have partners in the gospel!
