race to the finish! {WITB} 

i'm thrilled to kick off Race to the Finish! in anticipation of the what's in the bible? volume 9 release {available august 14} and completion of the old testament, today kicks off a super fun kidmin blog tour. follow the blog race for the next 4 weeks to win great prizes & learn more about this innovative curriculum series.

our vision from the first day of writing the curriculum has been to bring the bible to life through new tools that help churches and families raise a generation of christians that know what they believe and know how to live those beliefs in front of a watching world.

our promise to churches is to provide excellent resources and training experiences by using innovative technology with high quality and easy accessibility to encourage spiritual growth in the lives of children both at church and home.

when we began creating the curriculum's template, these values served as our guide:

excellent quality we'll always offer our very best in creativity, storytelling, and communicating the bible as accurately as possible.

customizable after leading a children's ministry and purchasing curriculum that wouldn't allow me to adapt to my context, creating a flexible format was super important. the what's in the bible? curriculum offers a word document perfect for adding, deleting, or tweaking. you make the lesson perfect for your kids.

easy to use we wanted lessons with as few instructions & supplies as possible in order to put volunteers and small group leaders in charge. we know it's not good for a small group leader to be buried in her lesson plan. she should be leading a conversation and facilitating an experience. our hope is that the lessons will serve as an outline so that leaders can be fully present with their children.

unique biblical content when i'm traveling and people ask about the curriculum, i love to say that we teach the biblical stories while also teaching about the bible. in the series, as children learn the old & new testament stories they're also learning where the bible comes from, who wrote it, how we got it, how we know we can trust it, and how all of the books come together to tell one story. i love this!

each day during the Race to the Finish! you'll have a chance to win a copy of the first 9 Volumes of curriculum. since today is day 1 of the race, today's prize is {you guessed it!} Volume 1 Genesis: In the Beginning with lessons featuring: What’s in the Bible? Who wrote the Bible? Genesis & Primeval History, and Patriarchal History.

enter to win! {extra point for leaving a blog comment} today's prize: one copy of Volume 1 Curriculum {$79.99 retail value} good luck! and cheers to the old testament.

The starting point - and a great one at that..... Focused on God and how he wants us to understand his word.

Hmmm........ Probably Jacob and the sheep story.

Joseph's forgiveness and grasp of God's big plan

My favorite Genesis story would be Abraham and his willingness to follow God even when asked to give up his son.

The Passover narrative

Easily it is the story of Joseph. A guy who just kept on trusting God and not giving into bitterness in any form. It really challenges me as I live this side of Jesus.

I enjoy the account in Genesis 1-11 (primeval history, as WITB like to say). It is a common thread for all cultures. Foundational, too, to God's rescue plan.
