Creating to glorify His name, teaching kids the Word.
My name is Irina, I am a wife and a mom of 2 girls. Last Christmas my girls wanted to play with our fragile ceramic Nativity figurines, so I decided to make durable ones for them to play with. Then they asked for Adam & Eve, then for Noah and his family so I made those as well, it helped them know Noah's sons names by heart. Biblical characters became personal to them. And this is how this whole idea of "The Bible Story Bag" started.
I've been given a privilege by God to teach kids of all ages in my church for more than 10 years now. Based on 1 Corinthians 10:11, I believe that the best way to teach Biblical truths to children, apart from addressing their heart whenever an issue arises and leading them by our own example, is to let them be immersed in real stories of how God dealt with real people in real history, from which they will learn what God's heart and character is like.
I pray that The Bible Story Bags will bless you and help your kids learn more about God’s truths and His salvation, as you yourself grow closer to the Lord yourself through reliving the Biblical stories together with your kids, and that it will be a blessing to your family as it has been to mine.
