  1. May I use the object lessons or any of the lessons in a pre-recorded video of me teaching & share it on YouTube and Facebook?

  2. peace, I am in Brazil, am I allowed to translate and print and charge a fee for copies? I am currently unemployed. A symbolic value

  3. Thanks for a great resource. I’d like to clearly ask so I know I am permitted. I work in Thailand. Your lesson downloads are pdf but I want the html. I want to put notes in Thai to help Thais teach this. Wish my Thai was good enough to totally translate, but it is still not. I can easily type in thai in html by adding my mrmcgoo.css file (Im in my 60s -if you know who mr. mcgoo is you understand).
    I have been developing for over 20 years a free bible note system that is translates into any html supported language with search and replace (GUI uses html 5 css 3) I continually add permitted – free resources into this. I’d like to add what I use to teach from your website. The resource is free, I never ask for donations like you. Children’s resources are few here – but some folks are beginning to develop materials.
    Would that be acceptable to you?

  4. Thank you so much for your inspired lessons and resources to help our children grow in the Lord! I have used them often during the years in the classroom but I would love to offer them now as we try to reach our youth virtually. Offering them free is such a help for our small Christian ministry.
    Do I understand right that I can use your lessons and their resources in our Church’s Facebook live and on our internet site for a children’s class as long as I give credit during the session? Thank you, Barbara Trogdon with Community Holiness Chapel, Lesage WV.

    • Yes absolutely – any of our lessons or teaching ideas can be used anywhere for ministry with full permission and blessing!

  5. Just reading through some of your material and your permission to use in online services. I pray Gods blessing on this ministry. Thank you so much.

  6. Good day! Thank you for sharing this. I was blessed reading this. This is a great help for me in the Sunday school and in the School for teaching God’s word. May God bless you more and more.

  7. I am currently writing 1st-2nd Grade Bible Study curriculum and will be working with a publisher to publish my curriculum for sale. I am interested in using the 5 Finger Prayer guide within one of the lessons of my curriculum and want to ensure that appropriate permission has been obtained. It is my intent to use my own artwork but would be using the same verbiage for each finger as you provide on your site. Can you advise as to the proper source for that guide and authorize its use for the purpose described above? Your response is greatly appreciated.

    • Absolutely – you have our full permission, but I’m not sure anyone could copyright a prayer. God bless you in your efforts.

  8. Peace and Grace,

    I am asking for a permission to use Ministry-to-Children curriculum to add it to G2G – Sunday School App that considered a comprehensive reference to the servant by having different curriculums from everywhere, all credit will go to the Ministry to Children and also will be for free.

    Immaterial charge will be applied in case they user wants to use the app feature these charge just to maintain the app and keep improving it for the service.

    Thanks and God bless
