It’s Just a Phase—So Don’t Miss It: Why Every Life Stage of a Kid Matters and at Least 13 Things Your Church Should Do About It

A phase is a timeframe in kids’ lives when we can leverage distinctive opportunities to influence their future. That means the whining toddler, the dramatic fifth grader, and the stressed-out tenth grader are not just “going through a phase” that should be wished away; rather, they are transitioning through critical periods that we are called to discover, celebrate, and navigate strategically with them.

It’s Just a Phase presents a challenge to churches to treat every kid who breathes like they are made in the image of God.

Friends with God Story Bible

“Discover God’s story like you’ve never heard it before! You’re about to meet familiar Bible characters in a fresh new way. Discover not just what they did, but how they felt on their journeys to become friends of God. Bible-time friends will come to life as you… Stand with Adam as he stares with wide-eyed wonder at all of God’s creations–including Eve. Stride beside David, feeling his courage as he faces one of the biggest bullies of all time. Wade into the Jordan River with John the Baptist, who keeps peering past the crowd to search for the promised Messiah.

Using the associated application you can play games and learn fun facts and Jesus connections about 10 Bible characters.”
