Patient Hen - Hebrews 6:12

It may seem that God’s promise is too big for you to receive. The hen cannot see any change in the egg from day to day, yet she patiently and steadfastly sits on the egg. Then one day, suddenly, the egg cracks, and she receives the fulfillment of the promise.

What are Joyful ‘toons? 

Joyful ‘toons are cartoons that are based on verses from the Bible. Each cartoon consists of a verse  and a cartoon illustration. It is my prayer that they be used to exhort and encourage Christians in their walk with the Lord, and also that they be used to reach out to those who don’t know Jesus as Lord and savior. joyfultoons.com/faq/

About Mike Waters, cartoonist

I began drawing cartoons based on Bible verses in the 1990′s. I have always loved drawing cartoons, and one day the idea came to me for a cartoon that would illustrate the relationship between faith and grace. Not long after, an idea for a second cartoon came to me. I noticed that the back page of the weekly bulletin at my church was often blank, so I approached the pastor with the idea of using my cartoons to fill that space, and he agreed to my proposal. After that, ideas for other cartoons started coming to me, and they became a regular feature of the church bulletin. I then thought of sharing the cartoons, which by this time were called Joyful ‘toons. joyfultoons.com/about/

Derailed - Galatians 5:6

Don’t ever be unwilling to forgive. An unforgiving heart will derail your faith from the track of love.

Tailor - Isaiah 61:10

We cannot attain salvation or righteousness through our own efforts. It is a free gift from God. Through Jesus, we can exchange our sin for His righteousness.

Telescope - 2 Corinthians 4:18

By faith we can ‘see’ things that we cannot see with our natural eyes. By faith we can get a vision of God’s plan for our lives.

Twin Sisters Productions -the leader in childrens educational musicThis is a terrific place for parents and educators to shop for quality educational and inspirational music resources for children. I’m happy to share my review of two products available from Twin Sisters-

Spanish CD/ Book Set

 

Great Value & Excellent Quality. I don’t usually mention price in my reviews, but $4.99 is such a good price for a great workbook. There are several other workbook titles available on their website. This 48 page workbook is reproducible; the CD is high quality audio of ear-pleasing singing voices and catchy songs. Perfect for ages 4-99. Grandpa (Abuelo) might just learn some Spanish with this book 🙂

Scripture Memory Christian 50-Count Game Cards

 

I think a flashcard scripture memory game is pretty neat. This game – only $2.99 – also includes a free song download.

“God’s Word is fun, challenging and a great family time activity with these Scripture Memory Game Cards! Kids will love learning scripture verses with this fun game designed for the beginning learner as well as the advanced Bible scholar! Perfect for Sunday school, home educators and family time!”

This game uses the NIV translation. The website doesn’t mention the translation used. Not a big deal, but here’s an example of how the answer for Deuteronomy 6:5 varies:

NIV Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.

KJV And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.

I like this game but do have two recommendations for it. The 1st is to have the cards two sided. The verse on one side and the answer on the other side. This would allow the player to “see” the verse instead of relying solely on listening to someone read it. And it would also make the game single player friendly. The 2nd recommendation is to have several blank lines representing each word needed to complete the verse. The game cards now only show a single blank line for answers with several words. 

♪Enjoy shopping for fun learning products at the Twin Sisters website♫
