This page contains a list of our places on our website related to teaching the Bible – where you can find free printables, audio messages, blog posts with Bible teaching tips, and links for family-friendly resources.
Hopefully, by compiling this information onto one page here, it will make things easy for people who are looking specifically for these things. 😊
From the “Encouragemints” Blog: Here are some posts which focus on teaching the Bible to children and/or might also include free Bible-related downloads or links on them on our website:
Teaching the Bible to Toddlers and Preschoolers (e.g. Grace’s Bible Study Outline for Tiny Tots – from Joy’s mom)
Designing a Home Preschool (includes a thematic Bible lesson outline on the character of God)
Knowing Handel’s Messiah (a short unit study for Christmas)

There are two pages on our website in the section called “Sunday School at Home”. Both contain resources useful for days when families are unable to attend church as often as they would like. Click on the graphics to reach those pages.
Below are the full set of past sermons from Joy’s dad, Jake Redekopp. (They are posted here with his permission.) The sermons are GOOD to listen to even with younger children. Dad wasn’t a pastor but he did teach adult Sunday School for a very long time, spent many years in children’s ministry, and later was/is involved with seniors’ ministry teaching Bible studies. (Much of his time is currently needed with other things.) We hope you will enjoy listening to these!
