"I have never seen Bible truths communicated to children with such enthusiasm, simplicity and effectiveness.  Kids really respond!  Linda's passion for helping families and churches pass on the faith really shines through this engaging, hands-on approach. 'Remarkable' is the best word I can think of to describe Linda's achievement.                     Laurel Tessmer, Minister Associate,
      Beverly Heights Presbyterian Church, Mt. Lebanon, PA

It is a manipulative based program which invites children's 
       participation, using hands-on learning at it's best!
