Stories are great for opening hearts and sparking conversations. In our free guide, Activating Family Faith with Picture Books: “You are God’s Masterpiece,” we help you connect popular picture books to scripture to teach kids:
- God made them special.
- God created them to make a difference.
It’s full of fun, easy games and crafts, all linked to Bible verses and discussion starters. There’s also a book list to help you choose more great stories about these topics.
