Puzzles and coloring pages keep their interest while reinforcing the message. "Praises From The Psalms is down-to-earth, graphic, imaginative -- children can see and touch and experience. And it's the Bible that they receive, not shallow sentimentality. These brief activity sermons are a rare combination -- God's joyous truth at a child's level -- perfect for every church." Richard B. Wilke, retired bishop Arkansas Conference, United Methodist Church "One of the most important tasks for the church is providing spiritual education for children. It may also be one of the hardest to accomplish. How can one speak of the mysteries of God and faith in a way that a child can understand? Julia Bland has given ministers and volunteers who work with children an invaluable resource to help them do just that. This volume of children's sermons, based on the Psalms, emphasizes the nature of our relationship with God. The suggested sermons are biblically based and draw on common life experiences to illustrate the points. The activity pages reinforce the biblical teaching and offer a selection of fun activities for the child. Praises From The Psalms will be a great tool for the ministry of the church." W. Michael Chittum Senior minister, Plymouth Congregational Church Wichita, Kansas During nearly 50 years as a pastor's wife, Julia Bland taught church groups of all ages from children through senior adults. She has been active in United Methodist Women and served as district chairperson of Global Concerns as well as Publicity and Public Relations. Bland's award-winning oil, watercolor, and pen and ink artwork has appeared in private and public collections.
