An inspiring way to learn the Bible!

A two-volume comprehensive Bible study series connecting Old and New Testament stories. Useful in multiple settings from Sunday School to weeknight study, My Testament includes creative journaling and holy conversations for children in grades three to five.

The series will help children connect themes from both the Old and New Testament. Each volume has 26 sessions and includes:

- A learning objective
- A New Testament story
- An Old Testament story
- Creative journaling prompts and wonder questions

Each session has an Old Testament story and a New Testament story that are woven together around a main theme. Throughout each session the children are given opportunities to respond to scripture. There are opportunities to creatively write, illustrate, pray, and to ask difficult questions as children enter into a deepening understanding of scripture. My Testament is more than just "journaling." Each child will create a one-of-a-kind journal of what they believe to be true about their relationship with God.

The ideal length for each session is 45 minutes. Within this time, opportunities are provided for holy conversations in the form of wonder questions. As the participants create their testaments, responding to scripture, they will be encouraged to discuss their responses with those around them.
