This resource will provide you with 52 weeks of Bible learning, science projects, crafts, cooking, and much more – all designed to make it easy for you to hand down confident faith while engaging the children you love in interesting, fun and active learning.

Generations Quest – Cultivate the Faith! is a resource grandparents could definitely use with the children they love, but it is also a great resource for parents, home school, and churches. One of the most important things we will ever do as grandparents/parents is to hand down confident faith to the children we love. Generations Quest – Cultivate the Faith! will help you do this! I’m very happy today to share with you one complete lesson, so you are able to try it with the children you love. Please share this free lesson with other grandparents/ parents you know!

Welcome to, 
Generations Quest – Cultivate the Faith! which has 52 weeks of activities and Bible Adventures to help you hand down a heritage of confident faith to the children you love. Each week’s activities include a science project, craft, nature walk or cooking project, time for active games – the type which take just a minute to play (look these up on-line as for copyright reasons, I could not reprint them). Along with all these fun activities, you will find a verse to memorize each month, a portion of Psalms each week to read, think through and pray back to God – along with the opportunity to look at real people from the Bible who choose to love, know, and walk with God and important discussions about the “whys” – why we are able to believe.  

I Can Praise God – Generations Quest Cultivate the Faith – Week 6  

I Can Praise God & Jehoshaphat Stood Firm!

Science—Balloon in a Bottle!

(Look up, “balloon in a bottle” on-line for examples and photos of this project.)
Wrap up with something along the lines of: For this project you were able to do something surprising; blow up a balloon inside a bottle!  This is the kind of project you are likely to tell others about and today you are going to learn about how David told others about the wonderful things God did for Him. You will also see how Jehoshaphat praised God for the wonderful things He did. You can choose to be like David and Jehoshaphat by telling other about the wonderful things God does for you, too!
