Joy for Every Day

The Lenton Season

by Doris Clark Splichal on 03/04/15

What a wonderful time to introduce your students to God's wonderful plan for us!

We have been studying about Baptism and Communion.  Next Sunday we will talk about the Cross.  As we discussed Communion last Sunday, several of our students told us that they did not like talking about the cross.  One said, it is scary
and I don't like to talk about it.  Sooo, we talked about it.  

It is very important that your students understand that while Jesus did have to suffer death on that cross, it means so much more to us.  It is a symbol of the Love of Jesus.  It is important to talk about the fact that Jesus did not stay on that cross, that he died and came back to life, so that we, too, might have that ability.  Because of the cross, we are able to be in God's family just by believing in Jesus and what he did for us.  When your class looks at the cross, they need to see a symbol of God's love for us and the New Life we have because of it.

It  is important that they see the resurrected Christ, talking with his disciples, eating meals with them, and giving directions for the work he expects us all to do,

We will be decorating our cross with flowers next Sunday to represent Love and New Life.

"Oh, death, where is thy sting?"

Happy Easter!!

Easter is Coming

by Doris Clark Splichal on 03/04/15

Are you looking for an appropriate gift for your class members or a friend for Easter?  Our new Devotional Book is an excellent choice.   Simply written for people with intellectual disabilities, it is a wonderful prayer book.  Each day includes a simplified Bible Verse, a thought for the day based on the Bible Verse and a short prayer.  It can be read to those who are non-readers or read by those readers with a third grade level of reading.   

This is a great way for your students to establish Bible reading and prayer as a daily activity.  It is also wonderful for older adults with cognitive difficulties or for young children. Each page includes an icon to help the non-reader identify
their favorites.

New things are Happening!

by Doris Clark Splichal on 07/23/14

This has been an exciting month at the Frog Pond.  We have added new additions to our

store and hope you will browse and decide to give them a try in your classes.  And, if you haven't begun a class.....Why Not?  We are here to help you.

We have just added White's Chapel UMC to our curriculum family and I have been helping them to get started with the CHURCH WORDS curriculum in September.
The teachers are enthusiastic and we are hoping their program will be expanding soon.

Let me hear what you are doing in your churches to provide God's word to people who need a simplified study.  They are eager to learn and just need your help to get started.  Call us and let us help.

Have a wonderful week and praise the Lord for your wonderful opportunities.

Hugs!  Doris
