I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.
My Sabbath School class is learning about the Bible as our theme program/lesson. We are using a resource from My Bible First that would be a definite blessing for family worship, a Sabbath afternoon activity or for Sabbath School. Learning About God’s Letter to Me is a two-part resource consisting of a spiral bound, 46 page booklet and a separate device booklet. The 23 lessons in the booklet are 1 to 3 page stories that teach how we got the Bible, how to find things in your Bible, how the Bible is organized, etc. The back of the booklet includes a brief summary of each book of the Bible as well as the music and lyrics for three complementary songs. Don’t read music? That’s okay, because you can go to the product page for God’s Letter to Me and download the MP3 music file for each song. What a blessing!
The device folder is purchased separately. The folded 17″ x 11″ full-color cardstock device includes two sheets of full-color illustrations to cut out and glue in the device as you read through the booklet.
My Sabbath School class is a unique group of children from ages 3 to 13, including a few with learning and developmental disabilities. A large portion of my class is new to attending Sabbath School. I have found the language of the lesson booklet to be accessible for all of the ages in my class. Having the device in their hands as we talk helps those who need a visual connection with what they are hearing. I will cycle through this book again in a few years to make sure the youngest students have another chance to learn the material.
The price of the this resource is more than fair! The spiral-bound lesson booklet is $4.25, and the full-color device is just $1 each. Very budget friendly for homes and Sabbath Schools. My Bible First offers extra resources to expand on this theme, including additional question cards, illustrated Scripture songs and more.
There are several other topics available in the Learning About series. including the importance of the Sabbath, and the 10 Commandments. You can be sure that my Sabbath School students will be going through those topics as theme lessons as well!
Prayer and effort, effort and prayer, will be the business of your life. You must pray as though the efficiency and praise were all due to God, and labor as though duty were all your own.

Our prayers are to be fervent and earnest as were the petitions of the needy friend who asked for the loaves at midnight. The more you ask, the firmer will be your spiritual union. You may come into that place where you will have increased blessings because you have increased faith.
