    Tony, you have helped me teach my children in an easier format because my class has different age groups in it. I don’t have to alter much to make it compatible for each student and this is a blessing. Thank you for you time and dedications to God and helping others. Merry Christmas.

We already put together and colored the Creation Story at the beginning of the school year (I am a homeschooling mom), and she still has it in her reading basket. She chooses to read it above other books most days :) Thank you for the use of your resources to help us moms with leading our little ones to Christ! To God Be the Glory!

    Thank you and God Bless your work.

    Hi Tony & Mandy!

    Just wanted you to know we’re using the Advent colouring book in our school program–the kids loved it! The illustrations are beautiful, and what I really love about it is that the artwork is sophisticated enough so that older kids enjoy working on them as well.

    Thanks for all you’ve done to provide these and all the other wonderful resources on this site! It’s my go-to resource on the web for my children’s ministry.

    Merry Christmas and blessings for 2013!

    Thank you for all of your hard work. My teachers and kids enjoy the various ideas and lessons. It is so awesome, when a child’s eyes become big and you see-they got it! Thanks.

  18. Tiina Nummela says

    Thank you for the material. I have one suggestion as to the ethnicity of the people depicted in the pictures. If you could mix them a little so they would not be so exclusively Caucasian they would be more usable in an ethnically mixed church as mine. Thank you again.

  19. barb sinclar says

    I found this wonderful advent website this morning as I was preparing for Sunday School. I believe the Lord directed me to your advent site and I am very excited. Thank you so much for all the effort you have put into this and for allowing it to be free for teachers like me! I also copied the Christmas tree and Jn 3:16 verse for an extra. God bless you and may God continue to use you for His honor and Glory. Sincerely…BARB Sinclair

    These coloring pages are terrific! I was originally looking online to buy an advent book for the kids to use during a cantata at our church, but these are so beautiful and I know all ages of kids will enjoy coloring them. Thank you so much for putting them out for free!!

  22. Yvonne Posley says

    I wanted to tell you just how much your lessons and ideas have helped in planning for each week. I taught adults for years but now I am in the childrens ministry and have no idea how to plan for each week. But through prayer, study and your lessons with craft ideas I have become less challenged. thanks so Much. I am sharing what I learn with other teachers too and our ministry has become better at reaching the children with the new ideas and teaching methods. God Bless each of you. yposley


  1. [...] This may be the first…but it won’t be the last. Just wait till we make those toilet paper tube manger scenes I was telling you about! (To which my mom is giving a very humble, knowing grin…kindly recalling all the trash she has saved for me over my lifetime…in my constant pursuit of the next great craft!) [...]
