I was given a free copy of The God Puzzle for my honest review, which you will find below.

I don’t know about you, but I often feel I am lacking with providing enough biblical teaching at home.  It seems the days are short and I have trouble fitting it in.  I can display character and teach by my actions, but when it comes to truly teaching and answering questions I come up blank – often.

The God Puzzle:  How the Bible fits together to reveal God as Your Greatest Treasure by Valerie Ackermann is just what this busy mom needs.  It is a built in lesson plan for a mom who does not homeschool and is as far away from that as is possible!

The God Puzzle is a colorful, easy to use resource that easily helps communicate to your child the rich truths about God, His ways, His will and His love.  I cannot wait until my 4 year old is a bit older and I can begin using these worksheets and lessons to fill him up.  The book is focused for kids ages 7-12, so this will be staying right on my shelf and hopefully we will check it out along the way, it’s too good to just leave it there for 3 more years!

When I looked through it I loved what I saw – the book enables you to give your kids simple, clear answers to their endless questions – and the ones I often do not have answers for!  I was impressed by the presentation of the lessons as well as the  way they are presented.

The God Puzzle will help you address doctrinal themes of the Christian faith in a kid friendly way, present Bible lessons in an interactive way that will hold the child’s attention and deliver quality teaching with no preparation needed. 75% of children leave the church when they leave home, that hurts my heart.  Something isn’t working. Sunday School isn’t doing it all. Kids need answers, good ones. And they need them from you, the parent.  So true, if we can’t communication God to our children, how can we think someone else will be effective?  This book enables you to give them simple, clear answers.

    This is exactly what I need at home! I’m a busy mom of 4 kids 5 years old and under! My 5 year old is always asking me questions about God and the Bible and I often struggle to answer her questions in a way that is easy for her to understand! I will definitely check this out! Thanks!!

  2. I know, it is an excellent resource – still time to put it on a Christmas List too!
