There will be a post later today for WIFD. :-) This is a long-overdue post...a quick review of a children's Bible study on the armor of God. It is produced by Quiet Times for Kids. I will post a more thorough review of this Bible study after we have completed it.
One of the things that drew me to this Bible study is that it encorporates Lego dioramas. In fact, if you order this Bible study from them now, your child can get in on a photo contest of the dioramas for a chance to win a building block set from Vision Forum. The photos must be submitted by August 31, 2011, so if you or your child is interested, go get this study!
This is a 6 week study on the armor of God. I spent some time this morning working through week 1 ~ even as an adult, I found some of the questions to be challenging to my thinking. The study is designed for individual study, helping young people develop a habit of daily time in the Word. There are projects for some of the days. Each week a cube is built for the piece of armor being studied and a Lego diorama is worked on. It's designed to be done 5 days a week, so it would fit in well with a school schedule. We will be starting it on Monday, when we start our new school year.
So far, the only "complaint" I would have, and it's not a big deal is that they have Ephesians 6:10-18 printed out on Scripture cards, designed for your child to cut out and put on their wall. They have used 4 different versions for this. KJV, NASB, NKJV, and NIV. At our house, we use the ESV. Not a problem, I'll just print it out on our computer in our version. :-) And, they can't really cover every version of the Scriptures.
So, while we have not gone through it yet, I believe it looks like it will be a good study, generating conversations with the children, providing fun with the projects, growth in the walk with the Lord...and I would encourage you to click on the link above and check it out!
