  1. Ann Sanger

    “J’s Diner” is a seven-week study of Psalm 23. It is part of the 28nineteen p. This upper elementary leaders’ guide is beautifully crafted with a black and white checkered border. Bright red, yellow, and green is an attractive color scheme that is pleasing to the eye. The resource displays the directions in an easy to read format. J’s Diner includes “Today’s Special” which would be the memory verse and “The Pantry,” which supplies large and small group activities. The Leader’s Devotion is insightful and gives you wonderful prayer prompts.

    In the past, I have been subjected to small print and difficult to follow directions. But this instructional guide makes you want to pick it up and read it. Each page and each section is highlighted by a bright colored banner.

    Every activity has a specific purpose and connects to the Bible lesson and the main point for the day. Psalm 23 is broken down into easy to memorize sections. Small Group activities ask questions to break the ice and introduce the topic.
    The main reason I like this resource as it talks about the Bible being the best part. In the “What did God say?” section, the memory verse is only one verse or passage during each day’s session.
    The Bible lesson is introduced, then the children actually read the Bible. The text is from Psalm 23. With each lesson, the gospel is presented in a clear and age-appropriate method. The lessons end with an application of how the children can focus on Jesus in their daily lives.
    Large group activity includes materials and directions for games prepared especially to integrate the theme of the memory verse. “The Lord is my shepherd” uses sheep in the game.
    The reproducible pages are a plus. They are attractive and allow the children to have a bookmark size instructions for the activities.
    As an elementary school teacher, I would say these lessons are fun and easy to plan. Psalm 23 is one of my first and favorite scriptures as a child. I agree that these lessons are scripturally sound. They are also adaptable to small churches such as where I attend.
