Thank you for all the work you do for all of us. My Children's neighborhood outreach ministry is doing so well and much of it is because of the things I've been able to get from your website. PRAISE the Lord and YOU. Donna, 3/29/2010
Your web site is fabulous and I am soooo glad that I subscribed to it. It enhances my already planned out Sunday School lesson and gives me more options and my class is having a wonderful time. I have a lot of young children as I have e-mailed you in my letters before. It is very difficult sometimes to keep their attention long enough to tell a story but with the extra things I get from your site, it is working better.

I've taught Bible classes for almost 30 years. Even though I always added my own ideas, I had gotten really tired of the purchased curriculum our church used. I found your material online several years ago and finally asked our education director last year for permission to use it instead. You've rejuvenated me as a teacher and my students love the lessons. The crafts are more work than the punch-outs in the purchased curriculum but so much better! Our church has a good support group for us teachers that make it much easier for us. We have wonderful volunteers who work each week in our Teachers' Workroom. I make copies of your craft/game/visual pages and give to them at least two weeks before I plan to teach the lesson. They have the material ready for my students tell me they really enjoy getting your crafts ready for the students.
