    Heart-Focused Classroom Management – Part 2

    Discipline is helping children to grow, not controlling behavior. It is a long process that needs to be mostly positive in nature, but firm and loving.

What’s the difference between the older versions and the newer revised curricula? Why upgrade the old to the new after all these years? ... More

    As many of you may already know, David and Sally Michael’s daughter has been experiencing serious and ongoing medical issues. Here is a wonderful perspective from Sally as their family undergoes this time of suffering and difficult transition.

    So how do I feel? Sad, frustrated, helpless, discouraged, grieving...Don't ask me how I feel. Ask me what I know. What I know to be true about God. What I know His Word promises. What I know about our sure and certain hope. What I know is:

      • God has promised all things will work out for our good.

      • God's

  10. Revised and Enhanced Curriculum

    Children Desiring God's new CEP Curriculum We are in the process of revising and updating our Sunday School curriculum. This is more than just a “new look.” After 15 years of curriculum publishing, our mission and vision have not changed. We still exist to spread a passion for the supremacy of God in all things so that the next generation may know and cherish Jesus Christ as the only One who saves and satisfies the desires of the heart. But in our passion to see the next generations delight in Him, we’ve been working to improve the ways we equip teachers, engage students, and impact families. ... More
