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:
- Original children’s songs
- Folder activities
- Bulletin Boards
- Project folders
- Lesson plans
- Teaching Tips
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 (email@example.com) and let me know about them.
I hope you enjoy your visit here,
