Unwrapping the Servant
Teaching Kids to Serve Jesus and OthersUnwrapping the Servant is all about laying a foundation of servanthood in kids as their morals and beliefs are being formed. We want serving others to be a natural part of their mindset and lifestyle … that noticing needs and attempting to do something to address them becomes their “normal.”
Much of the book is ideas on how kids can serve—how they can get their hands dirty while serving the Lord. Think beyond making a card or singing at a nursing home once a year. Families, classrooms, clubs, homeschoolers, and grandparents can all benefit from these ideas on serving. Serving together is one of the most significant faith formation influencers!
Another portion of the book is devoted to a 6-week intensive program where everything is focused on serving others in the name of Jesus. Because it’s so concentrated and experiential, this program has had huge success in altering kids’ mindsets for a lifetime.
Ideas for Connecting Christ to HolidaysHoliday Extravaganza highlights 15 holidays, most of which are not traditionally centered in the Word of God. Even holidays that find their roots outside of Christian beliefs can be redeemed! Jesus used the things of the world to convey His message, and we can follow His example by taking these celebrations and giving them a new focus.
April Fool’s Day can be a time to talk about Proverbs—what God considers wise and what He considers foolish. Earth Day becomes a time when we learn about bearing fruit in every season, and that God is the One to honor on this day. At Halloween teach your kids how God restores dry bones and gives them life! Included are multiple ways of connecting Scripture to 15 holidays.
Beakers, Bubbles & the Bible 2
Volume 1 was so popular, and Dr. Bunsenburner had so many new experiments to share, that there's now a Volume 2. And, it's even better! Seriously! It contains 54 ... you heard me right, 54 ... NEW experiments that you can use to connect kids to scripture. Through guided instructions, observations, and discussion, these science experiments make great object lessons. Every age, from little ones to bald or grey, you'll be amazed and then connected to the Word of God. Each experiment has a photo or image that will give you the confidence you need to make it work. (And those cute kids in the pictures, are Dr. B's grand twins!)

Fun ways to memorize Scriptures
This book is written in 3 major segments, and although intended for kids, there is absolutely no reason the same methods can't be used for any age group! The first segment describes 14 keys to memorization. The send segment is a host of fun, energizing games and activities that will decrease the tediousness of scripture memorization. These fall in four categories, which are each critical to memorizing: repeat, relate, recall, and review. The third category contains the lesson plans for a 6-week intensive program of memorizing large portions of scripture, a task which children in early elementary are fully capable.
