In earlier entries, we’ve made some suggestions for books/printed material that are currently available and full of valuable insights for the parent/coach. Following are some suggestions for online and media resources.
- kidzkan.org KidZ KaN for Families is 12 monthly issues, downloadable, each bringing a story and units for activities suitable for school aged kids. Each issue features a different country where KidZ At Heart sends teams to train adults to effectively share Jesus with children in their own culture.
- www.Weavefamily.org A treasure chest with a wide variety of resources; many with a focus on reaching the edges of God’s Kingdom – those places and peoples who have little to no opportunity to hear about God’s gift of eternal life in Jesus.
- DiscipleLand.com/Elementary/Pro2ge A new product (Summit Series) from this trusted curriculum company designed to disciple school aged kids within their families with parents as primary coaches/leaders. Creative, colorful workbooks, one per child, with strong support from a website.
