“Big Picture Bible Crafts invites children to enter into the story of redemption—experiencing the majesty of God and the beauty of the gospel—in a tactile way. We love the simple supply lists and instructions that make it easy for us to tell our children a Bible story and do a craft during family worship.”
—Joey Cochran, Pastor of Middle School Discipleship and Communication, Calvary Memorial Church, Oak Park, Illinois
“As someone who is craft challenged, I love this resource. It takes the biblical stories and makes them come alive in a kaleidoscope of activities designed to engage and stimulate the youngest members of the church community.”
—Iain M. Duguid, Professor of Old Testament, Westminster Theological Seminary; author, Numbers: God’s Presence in the Wilderness
