Strengthen Your Ministry by Equipping Grandparents Part 3 . . .

For the past two days I've been reviewing resources you could use in your ministry to equip grandparents so they will pass on a heritage of faith to their grandchildren. Your Children's Ministry will benefit and be significantly more effective if you take the time to engage and equip the grandparents.

You can make engaging and equipping grandparents as big a ministry as you choose with either just recommending resources or implementing an actual Grandparenting Ministry. Either way, you will need resources so today I want to share one more resource with you - Science the Bible & FunThe goals of this book are to . . .
  • Help grandparents/parents faithfully engage their grandchildren in studying God's Word, praying and having fun together.
  • Guide them to pray Scriptures for themselves and for their grandchildren.
  • Help them create memories and grow together in their walk with God. 
Each book provides 52 weeks of lessons complete with science projects, crafts/baking projects, game suggestions, Scripture prayers and more to help grandparents and grandchildren know and follow God more closely.

Lynda Freeman understands instilling Biblical principles into the hearts and minds of children is best done with the help of visual aids.  Her book provides the opportunity for adults to interact with children in a fun yet meaningful way.  Thanks Lynda for such a valuable tool. ”

"I liked your book very much.  I think the material is desperately needed by grandparents and parents.  I know of a number of grandmas who would love to have it right now.  Well presented, too. "

“I haven't been able to personally use these materials with my own children (who are grown) or granddaughter (she is far away and is only four months old), but I can see the lessons being very valuable for homeschool families, parents and grandparents to use as they lead their children to a deeper relationships with Jesus. Using the Psalms along with other stories of the Bible and connecting them to a child's prayers to God is great. These lessons could be adapted for use in a church setting as well. I would love to share some of the science experiment/object lessons with the children at my church.

I just finished reading the book and I LOVED it! It is definitely a perfect way for me to spend time with my children, have fun with them and most importantly, teach them more about the Bible.“
