As you diligently interact with your child about these truths in daily life, you may see your child grow in spiritual understanding and faith. Our desire is that these discussions will encourage a heart response of faith as your child learns to trust God.
The GIFT App is available on iTunes for iPhone, iPad and iPod as well as on Google Play for Android phones and tablets. It is a great tool for keeping your children caught up if they are sick or traveling and miss Sunday School or it can be used on its own for family devotions. GIFT Pages can also be used as a discipleship tool for parents even if their children are not currently studying a Children Desiring God curriculum.
The GIFT app currently includes our three revised curricula:
GIFT Pages start by providing the Main Ideas of the lesson, a Memory Verse for the week, Scripture the lesson is based on, a Summary of the lesson and Prayer Points. These resources help parents know what was taught in Sunday School and review the themes with their children.
The As You Walk by the Way section provides discussion questions to help you interact with your child about the truths learned in class and study them at a deeper level. The Action Step challenges children to act on the truths they learned in the lesson.
Each curriculum features a special activity for children to do or for families to do together. Activities include Scripture memory, journaling suggestions, real-life stories and more. Finally, the interactive Share Ideas and Get Ideas function allows parents to submit their ideas and suggestions related to the lesson with other parents.
The GIFT App is a free viewer. Please enjoy reading the curriculum overviews and GIFT Page samples for Lesson 1 of each study. Complete studies include 40 GIFT Pages and are available as an in-app purchase of $1.99 for each study.
