Each lesson features an introduction to the main topic, learning objectives, a short story, thought-provoking questions, important vocabulary words, two Bible memory verses, interesting interdisciplinary topics, godly character traits that students should demonstrate as a response, prayer, and a worldview portion that provides a child's perspective on being a Muslim, Mormon, New Age spiritualist, Hindu, Buddhist, Communist, and other non-Christian beliefs.
Customize the schedule to your students' level; most chapters can be covered in two weeks, and this study may be used independently or with a parent. Ages 6-14, NIV, NLT, and NCV Scripture verses are used. 264 pages, hardcover.

I Doing Here?) helps children understand what it means to be fearfully and
wonderfully made in the image of the Most High God. This study will enable
students to develop a healthy self-image based on these biblical truths: God
made me in His image and crowned me with glory; He has given me special gifts
and a unique purpose in life; I can creatively express God's love; I am meant to
think about beautiful and praiseworthy things, especially God and His Word; I
must make decisions based on God's truth; I can always know the wise thing to
do; I must cultivate the fruit of the Spirit in my life; I am a beloved child of God
whose true identity is found in Christ.
These books are great for parents to use with their children at home. At a time when Christian teachings are subject to increasing hostility, children must learn early what they believe, why they believe it, and how to boldly defend those beliefs.
The What We Believe series helps parents and their children ask the important questions-and answers those questions with uncompromising biblical truth.
A wonderful tool to help Christian parents keep family discipleship front and center. This is one curriculum in a class by itself.

A great Bible curriculum for the entire family . . . one our family will use over and over again.

My daughter is hands on and loves to "dig in" to this curriculum. We bought the CD to go along with he studies so she could follow along in a quiet place and reflect upon what is being taught. The stories are so interesting and she'll come and tell me all she's learned that day. Thank you for putting together such a great curriculum! P.S. when she's finished with this book is there another?

JaniceOrlando, FlAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent Book & SeriesJuly 30, 2012JaniceOrlando, FlAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I cannot say enough good things about this book and the series. This quickly became my sons favorite lesson of the day, and if I tried to skip it he complained. The stories always kept him interested and I had to keep him from peeking ahead as the stories continue on with each chapter. Every lesson was put into words that a child could understand, and even taught me many things that I didn't understand. One of the best things was that it opened up conversations on topics not just during the lesson, but also for other times. We have finished volumes 1,2 & 3 and are currently awaiting the release of volume 4. Every parent so far that I have let look at one of my books has gone on to order the series for their child.

Tell us a little about yourself. I am a father of six children, all of whom have been taught at home. Though I currently work as a freelance writer and editor, and I have more than a dozen years' experience in Christian publishing at the management level.
What was your motivation behind this project? The project was born out of a crying need among homeschooling families for a quality curriculum to help them instruct elementary-level and junior high children in a biblical worldview as well as the beliefs of the Christian faith. Our publisher, Apologia, has partnered with Summit Ministries to produce this series of beautiful, full-color textbooks. Who Am I? (And What Am I Doing Here?) is the second book in the series.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? John and I hope that these books will change the way children and their families look at the world each day. In a world of competing ideas, these books are designed to help children learn to discern the truth by using Gods Word as a lens through which to view the world around them -- to see everything the way God sees it. We pray that these books will bring the world, its Creator, and His amazing love into clearer focus for parents and their children, helping them to build a biblical self-image and an unshakable faith to last a lifetime.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? I have been tremendously blessed by the project, which has required me to approach God anew with a childlike faith. It's not easy to describe His wonders and beauty and mysteries using only a fifth-grade vocabulary, but we did our best. Now it's in the hands of the Holy Spirit to use as He sees fit.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? I hesitate to mention the names of friends and colleagues for fear of omitting someone. However, among contemporary authors, I am particularly fond of the works of Kathleen Norris, Mark Buchanan, and Jan Karon. Jack Hayford has been a huge influence on my life.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: Our publisher, Apologia, is well known for its customer support, and this product will prove no exception. Parents and teachers who will be using these books as curriculum will have free access to extensive teaching helps posted on the Apologia website.
