Thank you for this excellent resource. I have been using it with my two sons 6 and 4. For the most part they are really getting it, especially the part about the ship and Jesus being their captain. Although occasionally the topic seems to fly over there head, I am so glad to have had the guide to begin having conversations with them about what Godly friendships look like at such a young age. Will be ordering more material! Thanks again.
We have all loved this, 8 YO, 11 YO, mom, and grandma all enjoyed learning what Jesus teaches us about being a good friend and keeping friend's. I wish I had this study when I was a child. It would have made life easier. The kids loved having a study geared for their age group and that they got their own book. Will definitely look at other studies for them to do!! So well done!!
My daughter and I have loved this bible study. She is 7, so I felt it was important for to begin to understand the types of friendships, qualities that make a good friend (on her part and others), and that not all friendships are a good choice. I also feel this will carry over to when she is older and navigating other relationships. I love how each lesson is short and involves a picture for her to draw as she loves that part. I also love that it incorporates short scripture. My daughter is in charge of looking up each verse in the Bible (finding the correct book, chapter, verse, and then reading it out loud to me), so even that has been great practice for her!
I got this to do with my granddaughter and so far it’s been a great tool to teach her how important it is to choose friends wisely & that there are different levels of friends. She’s 8 and is starting to see that everybody isn’t nice & doesn’t make good choices, so I feel it’s the perfect time for this.
My kids and I are enjoying this Bible study. I believe they like that is concise and to the point while actively making them think through friendship.
