About Me

About me? That sounds so narcissitic. I did a search to see if there was another phrase to use in the menu but this seems to be the most concise to tell everyone that this is where you can go to find out who’s writing this blog. That’s important — to know who is writing the information you’re reading, especially when it comes to something pertaining to God’s word. So, even though I would prefer to not write about myself, I will do so. Hopefully, by getting to know me a little better you will feel more confident in using some of my ideas or in approaching me with a question or suggestion. Here is a little “about me”:

I have a passion for teaching others about Christ. It is a privilege to share His story with others and especially children. I am a Christian, the wife of a gospel preacher and the mother of 6 children. The first Bible class I taught was when I was a teenager in Amarillo, TX. That was a long, long time ago. I have taught many children’s and ladies’ classes since then. I have had my share of successes and my share of failures. I have learned from watching others teach, from listening to others talk about teaching and from getting in the classroom and teaching myself. One of the things that has helped me the most is observing other teachers — the way they interact with the children and the activities they choose to cement the lesson of the day in those little minds. I know there are lots of Bible class teachers that are searching, just like I am, for good ways to improve their teaching and make the short time spent in Bible class as productive as possible.

Over the years I have accumulated material that has been helpful to myself and others. I would like to share it with you. The internet makes this so easy to do. No longer is there a need to compile a manuscript and hope a publisher somewhere will want to publish what I have to say. No longer is there a need to invest lots of money in publishing the material myself. Instead, I can start a blog/website that can be written/updated/corrected all from the computer in my kitchen. What an opportunity.

I hope that you will find here something that you can take to your classroom and use or even inspire you to do something similar or, even better, improve on, for use with your students. At Bible Songs and More you will find:

Feel free to use any material on this website with your own children and with your Bible class. If you would like to use them on a larger scale, please ask. If you find any errors (and I’m sure there are plenty), feel free to email me (dianaidow@gmail.com) and let me know about them.

I hope you enjoy your visit here,

  1. As a homeschooling mother of 5, and a Bible class teacher in the Lord’s church I want to thank you so much for sharing your Bible class activities, songs, ect. It has become increasingly hard to find accurate Bible class material and I end up making most of mine! Your activities are a time saver and your plan of salvation song has been amazing for my four and three year old class! Your commitment to God and His word is evident in everything you share. May God bless you and your beautiful family.

    • Thank you Libby. I’m glad you found something useful on my site.

  2. Thank you so very much! I will be back!

  3. Hi,
    I enjoyed looking around. Thanks for all the wonderful resources here. If you don’t mind, I’d love to ask you a question but couldn’t find an email address. If you’d send me an email, I ‘d really appreciate it.

  4. Hi Diana,
    I have been following your blog for a while now. I often stop by when I am looking for stuff for teaching my 3rd-4th grade Bible class.

    Recently I have been added as a team member to the R16:16 web site directory. I would like to invite you to come over and take a look around. If you feel that our directory would be a good fit for what you are doing here you can click on the Join Us tab and fill out the questionnaire.

    • Hi Renee,

      I’m always glad to hear that someone is able to make use of things on my site. Thanks for letting me know.

      I’m not familiar with R16:16. I looked it up online and couldn’t find it. Would you mind sending a link?

      • I apologize that I failed to include the link in the original post. I see however that you were able to find us. I’m so glad. I will get you added and email you with the details.
        Thanks,
        Renee

  5. Thansk so much for generously sharing your gifts so freely. We are planning to study Joshua and Gideon in our Sunday School ciriculum and will alos sing your gideon song. I read that in your Josuah lesson plan you mentioned the song” Dare to stand like Joshua”. I don;’t know that song and couldn’t find it on your site. I was wondering if you could direct me to finding the music for it

    thanks Diana.

    • Hi Brenda, I’m sorry I am so late in responding to your comment but somehow I missed it. Here is a link to Dare To Stand Like Joshua.

  6. I’m wondering if you have a copy of anything, like the Daniel Flipchart, The Lord’s Supper flipchart, or any of the handouts in the lesson plans for worship and for The Church you would be willing and able to share? Thanks.

    • Hi Melissa,

      I would love to share all my activities but some of them have art work that does not belong to me. Some of them were created far enough back that I didn’t have means to record them digitally so they are not easily shared. I’m trying to do better at getting digital pictures and pdf files I can share of new activities I put on this site.

  7. Hi Diana,

    Our children are going to sing your “Gideon” song this coming Sunday at church, since I am preaching a 3 part sermon series on Gideon.

    Just thought you’d be happy to know that your music is reaching some sweet kids for the Lord here in West Michigan.

    God bless,
    Pastor Steve

    • Thank you for letting me know, Steve. I do enjoy hearing that children are benefiting from my music.

  8. I was interested in the song you mention in your Solomon lesson, Go To The Ant by Glenda Schales. Is that available in a songbook or somewhere online?

    You have a very interesting site that I’ve just found…can’t wait to dig into it more!

    Thanks ~ Amanda

    • Hi Amanda,

      I’m glad you stopped by my site. I hope you find goodies you can use. The song you’re talking about may be available in Glenda’s book — Through The Bible With Song. Whether it’s in there or not, it would be a great book to purchase. Here is a resource for it: Our Spiritual Heritage.

      Diana

Thank you for taking the time to comment.
