Beth Guckenberger wrote her first book in third grade—about a frog. Since then, she has written other books, such as Reckless Faith (2008) and Relentless Hope (2011). Beth has a houseful of kids—some born in her body and some in her heart. She and her husband Todd live in Monterey, Mexico, where they serve as executive directors of Back2Back Ministries. They invite you and your family to come be a part of their story anytime. 3

Incorporate into Bible time and learning activities objects that are familiar to the children and sounds they know.

Joseph Serves God All His Life

Need material for your “extra hour”?

from Genesis 39, 41, 42, 45, 47

“You can be in charge of my palace,” said the king. So Joseph helped the people in Egypt gather and store grain. One day Joseph’s brothers came to Egypt to buy food. Joseph told them who he was. Joseph said, “God sent me here to help others.” Joseph knew that God wants us to help others.

What did Joseph do to help the people in Egypt?

Photo by Andrew Quach

Shape the hearts of kindergartners with easy-to-use teaching tools that stimulate ultimate Bible-learning experiences.

A Read-to-Me Bible Story Joseph had been taken to live in Egypt. One day the king of Egypt called for Joseph. The king had been having strange dreams. With God’s help, Joseph told the king that a time was coming when crops would not grow.

Who came to Egypt to buy food?

Leading a child to the Lord is like cultivating flowers. Growing beautiful flowers takes time. First you must prepare the soil. Next, you sow the seed and water it. Later, you will nourish the little plants with fertilizer. When needed, you pull weeds. Then, as you watch them grow, you marvel at what God has done. Leading a child to the Lord is similar. Daily, you guide the child with the Word of God and your encouragement. FREE

Use devotionals to develop a habit of spending time with God and his Word every day. Some devotionals are meant to teach you. Some are examples of how you can live out the Scripture in your life. Some are stories to inspire you to do better and greater things. Most of all remember that God is with you. Let him know every day youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re listening, open to his guidance and leadership, and that you worship him as your God and greatest friend. â&#x20AC;&#x201D;from the introduction to 365 New Testament Devotions for Kids by Mark Littleton
