God's Story for Children

Written by various authors

Each of these stories contains a retelling of the Bible story, questions to think about (great for introducing the story), a special lesson to remember, a Scripture memory verse, a prayer, where the story can be found in the Bible, and usually activities, crafts, and songs to go along with the story. More to come! Your helpful suggestions for resources are welcome!email
