IMG_20141116_140248_114There is no greater privilege than learning about God! In fact for me, boring and Bible do not belong in the same sentence. That is why I am posting free companion activities for my Bible study and prayer guide called Weave Your Word in Me (80 Bible Lessons for Tweens Woven Within the Lord’s Prayer) … to help you and your children catch my love of life-centered biblical learning.

I have compiled interesting, theme appropriate videos from the web, designed topic enriching puzzles and projects, and gathered a potpourri of inspiring music and art to help bring each Bible lesson to life for you and your upper elementary kids.
