Giveaway for Grandparents - or Families - in Your Ministry!

One thing we do for families - including grandparents - is look for resources they can use to pass faith to the children they love. Concordia Publishing House recently invited me to have a giveaway for their Happy Times Magazine which is designed as a tool for parents/grandparents to use to pass faith to preschool age children. Today I'm happy to let you know about this resource which you could share with the families in your ministry.

Happy Times
Published by - Concordia Publishing House
Ages - Preschool

Favorite Features -
  • Lots of color - it will capture the attention of little ones
  • Filled with stories and activities - it is fun for children to work through with their parents/grandparents
  • Parent Talk - guided conversation for parents and grandparents to help connect content to pass on faith
Concordia says; "Packed full of hands-on activities, crafts, and stories that encourage a child’s faith, Happy Times is full of tell me-about-Jesus moments for you to share with your child. Happy Times is created for preschoolers and the adults in their lives. Each bimonthly issue is filled with hands-on activities, crafts, stories and more which encourage a child's faith growth. Children will look forward to activities they can do independently along with projects which need grown up's help. This fun magazine is a wonderful resource to help adults talk to children about Jesus and to guide families in faith growth at home and church. Kids love getting mail, so send them some Happy Times! Only $16.50 for a one-year subscription (6 issues).

You will find the information you need about Happy Times at this link, along with another link you may follow to see a sample issue. And, as I mentioned, Concordia is making one subscription available for me to give away (USA only) on February 2, 2017. So, if you live in the USA, are over the age of 18 and would like to win a year subscription, please comment below to share what you do to let grandparents/parents in your ministry know about resources like this. Be sure to share this link with the grandparents/parents in your ministry, as they are welcome to enter the drawing, too!

In addition, you will receive additional entries if you have followed on Google+, Google Friend Connect, followed by liking on facebook with the tab at this link (not just liking the post) and/or have followed grandma's cookie jar by email. For each of these which you have done you will receive one entry. In addition, if you "share" this post, you'll receive an additional entry (please let me know if you share). This will help me be able to draw names from among people who would like to win a subscription to Happy Times Magazine and it gives you several ways to enter the give-away!

  1. I would read the stories and do the crafts with the children in our church's Wed night "Jesus & Me" group. If the resource is kid-friendly, engaging, help our children to learn about Jesus and grow their faith in Him, definitely I will show the parents and grandparents this magazine and encourage them to subscribe to it!
