|"Creating expressions of God’s love that make impressions on children’s lives."
Grow, grow, grow
See how my love for God grows and grows
Author: Chrissie Kritzinger

This series will equip and inspire children to live as children of God should. They will know, choose and do what is right, thereby growing spiritually. As a result they will bear flowers and fruit that will glorify God.
During the first term children will learn in a playful, exciting way about the complicated and wonderful workings of our bodies. And then they learn about eating spiritual food that is good for them, exercising their spiritual muscles and having backbone. In the second term they visit the animal kingdom and learn many lessons about the life and choices of a child of God. After the winter holidays they look at the world around them. Stones and water, air and weather patterns will show them that the whole world tells us about God! These things will also show them what they have to do if they want their relationship with Him to be strong. As the year draws to a close, the children will take a look at the gardening: digging in compost, watering, pruning, fighting pests and sharing in the joy of flowers and fruit. And through it all, they learn to tend to their own lives so that they, too, can grow spiritually right in front of our grateful eyes!
Hettie Brittz writes about Grow, grow, grow:
Chrissie has the rare gift of being able to put deep spiritual concepts into a grubby child’s hands like polished diamonds, together with clay and crayons – visibly, tangibly, brilliantly. Her material is full of truth and reality. I believe that children and children’s workers will look forward to the lessons each week. Parents will see miracles happen in their children’s hearts and observe a fresh, exuberant spiritual growth developing.
God’s Extreme Makeover plan
Lessons from NEHEMIAH to show 7- to 13 year olds how to build God’s spiritual house
God gives each person who has been broken by sin an extreme makeover when he or she believes in his Son, Jesus. He then calls us to share his makeover plan with the whole world, in this way building his kingdom, his spiritual home on earth. God helps us by giving us spiritual tools with which we can make his plans happen. We learn from Nehemiah the importance of prayer, team work and God’s Word. Bob, the Extreme Makeover builder, will be at each session.
Do you know Jesus?
Is He your Lord, your Hero, your King?
The narratives will open windows concerning who Jesus is, what He came to do, what He said, and how He touched lives while He walked on earth; and how He can do so today. Hopefully the children will also be inspired to learn more about Jesus for the rest of their lives. At a deeper level we ask ourselves: “Do you know Jesus?” By this we mean: Do you have a personal relationship with Him? Is He your Lord, your Hero your King?

- The colours tell a story
A series in which colour is used to help pre-school children to understand the gospel.
Through this book our children have grown in knowing God and how the Bible teaches us how to live our lives. They learnt about how special they are to God and how to talk to God. The songs, rhymes, activities and games in the book helped them to grow in various skills and have improved their language.
The fact that the book is available in Xhosa is very good. Adults who do not understand English can now teach Xhosa speaking learners at school, in our churches and in groups in our communities about the importance of the Word of God.”
