About the Book

The first in a three part walk through the Bible, this curriculum is designed to help children experience both the technical aspects of using the Bible as well as the wonders the Bible contains. Laying the Foundation explores how the Bible began as stories around a campfire and progressed to the written word on papyrus scrolls. Covering the first 22 books of the Bible, children are introduced to the stories of Abraham, Joseph, Moses, Joshua, the Judges, the Kings and the Assyrian, Babylonian and Persian conflicts using interactive games and activities. Use these lessons and watch children connect the Bible stories they have heard with the history of Abraham’s family. If you enjoy these lessons, you will also enjoy finishing Abraham’s story with A Promise Fulfilled. The third book in the series The Birth of the Church is an exploration of the contents of the New Testament through the eyes and travels of the early disciples and the Apostle Paul.

About the Author

In 2012, Brenda Hicks was asked to take over teaching her church’s third grade Sunday School class. Third grade is the year the children of her church receive their first “real” Bibles. She gladly accepted the challenge and spent the next four years writing a curriculum that would teach children the wonders of the books of the Bible. Brenda holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from Kansas State University in English with a Creative Writing emphasis and a Master of Arts Degree from Wichita State University. She is also a graduate of all four years of Disciple Bible Study. Prior to writing this curriculum, she created a bible based preschool curriculum with her sister-in-law, a Kindergarten teacher, which was purchased and utilized in several Kansas churches and daycare facilities. Brenda lives with her husband and two sons in Winfield, Kansas where she works as the Director of Financial Aid at Southwestern College.
