  1. Maggie says

    I have not tried this curriculum as yet. I was looking for something that would be appropriate for this Thanksgiving Sunday – Canada. I read the curriculum and really like it. It is simple, clear and to the point. I will be using it. Thanks so much.


  2. Darryl Stark says

    Great series! Thank you so much for these lessons. They are great guides and we can adjust (as you suggest) to fit the class and the points that God lays upon the teacher’s heart to communicate to the kids. The kids are learning about the Kings of Israel and I enjoy the books of Samuel and Kings very much! The teachers are getting a lot out these series as well :) What a man’s man David is.. and a man after God’s own heart. fyi – Index 4 – David is misspelled. Thanks again for all your work in the children’s ministry.

  3. Josefina D. Berrtoya says
