Connect with Important Things Jesus Wants Me to Know books

Resurrection Sunday is just three days away, which means Spring Break is likely about to start for the children you love. If you are looking for something you could do with them over Spring Break to connect and provide opportunities to talk about Who Jesus Is, what He did when He walked on this Earth, and how we are able to know Him better, take a look at the Important Things Jesus Wants Me to Know books and get a few to use with the children you love!

With these books and some crayons, markers, and/or colored pencils. you will be able to uniquely engage the children you love in ways they have never engaged before with the accounts of Bible heroes. As they (and you) illustrate their books, they will think about what is happening, the things the Bible people said and did, and how God showed His love and grace to the Bible people . . . which will help the children you love better understand how God shows His love and grace to them as well! 

If you and/or the children you love are not artists, or artistic people, when you see a book where you need to provide the illustrations, you may think it is not the book for you. But, in this case with the Important Things Jesus Wants Me to Know books, nothing could be farther from the truth! These books give you the unique opportunity to engage with the children you love in ways you never do when you just read a book about a real Bible person because you will be talking about what is happening, thinking through what the Bible person is saying and doing, and basically really paying attention to the details so you are able to provide the illustrations! Just think about the fantastic conversations you will be able to have about Jesus and the Bible people and how what they learned applies to you as well!

It does not matter if you are only able to draw stick people (and seriously, a book with stick people could be a fantastic book!) - the point is the value in in the conversations these books will generate! And, stick people, or more detailed illustrations, these books will be a treasure to enjoy as you and/or the children you love put the time into illustrating them!

So, artist or not, get these books, illustrate them, and treasure the conversations - and most importantly the learning - which will happen as you do!
