Mitzi has written two book to help children understand the Biblical basis of missions. Both books have 52 lessons uniquely created to be used three ways- a 3-5 minute children’s sermon, 15 minute message with reinforcement activity, or 20 minute family devotional. Each lesson helps children learn scripture and personalize Bible learning through hands-on application.
Missions Moments 2:52 Easy to Use Missional Messages and Activites for Today’s Family teaches missional living concepts from the Bible. Each lesson lays a scriptural foundation, encourages parents to share personal faith experiences, and challenges families to engage in witnessing or mission action.
