Legend of the Sand Dollar 

There's a lovely little legend that I would like to tell,
Of the birth and death of Jesus found in this lowly shell.

Look closely and you will find an image here of four nail holes and another from a Roman's sharpened spear.

One side shows the Easter lily with its center as the star. 
It shined brightly for the shepherds as they traveled from afar.

The Christmas Poinsettia etched on the other side, tells us Christ was born, and for our lives he died.

Now break the center open and here you will release, the five white doves awaiting to spread good will and peace.

This simple little shell Christ left for you and me, reminds us of his gospel that saves humanity.

Traveling Kings, A Christmas Tradition

At the beginning of Advent we place our Nativity Set on display in a prominent part of our home. Each day afterwards one of our children moves the three kings closer to Jesus, finally arriving at the manger scene on Christmas Day. (I know of others who move the baby Jesus instead, or who have the Kings arrive on Epiphany Sunday.) 

It's a happy memory for us! One day those three kings could be on top of the armoire or on the piano, another day they might be in the kitchen or under the coffee table! It was always fun to see how far they had "traveled."

Jesus' Birthday Celebration

We always celebrate Christmas as Jesus' Birthday. We have a decorated birthday cake and the manger scene under the tree - at the very front. Packages are placed behind it. We read the Christmas story and sing happy birthday to him.

your ideas and your website.

I just wanted to let you know what a blessing this website has been to me.
I am teaching children's church on Sunday nights and had ran out of ideas
to use. I prayed that God would give me some sources. Well, He did, alright!  This website!  I was up until almost 2:00 A.M. one night searching it out.
What a wonderful site!  I love it!  It has such great ideas. 
Thank you so much! 
~ Another sister in Christ, Mable D.

Its hard for a small church like ours to afford Bible curriculum and
yours is so affordable and fun!

I appreciate your Bible-4-Life series . . . I purchased all of the books

respond so well . . .
~ K. Eriksen

I highly recommend them. . . Sunday School Network is a company
you can trust.

Holding God's Hand

Youíve probably seen or experienced this scene firsthand: a big strong daddy walking next to his little toddler. As they walk the father reaches out his hand, and the child slips her hand into hisósuch a precious sight. Then suddenly the child stumbles, but she doesnít fall. Why? Because the father was holding on to her! In a nano-second the father clenched his daughterís hand even tighter and lifted her up out of harmís way!

Over the last year Iíve experienced this kind of Father-God rescue. As many of you know . . . continue reading.
