God for Kids was created by Joanne Gilchrist, mum of two amazing daughters, with a desire to lead her children to Christ.
“God for Kids began with me and my kids. Because of my desire as a writer and evangelist to ‘Know God and Make Him Known’, I wrote activity-based devotions for them.
“Each night at bedtime, I would test my ideas with my kids. I used paper, colouring pens, questions, puzzles and pictures plus a big dose of fun. The girls really enjoyed learning about God this way and we had a lot of fun together.
“But, when I asked other Mums to try my ‘activity-devotions’ with their kids, I got a mixed response. It seemed like parents loved the content (the message I was teaching) but using paper and pens in a technology-based world just wasn’t engaging enough.
“Then one of my Mum-friends said: ‘Have you thought about an app?'”
Of course! To reach as many kids as possible, something bigger than paper and pens was needed. And here’s why:
“I believe, like the Bible translator William Cameron Townsend, that God speaks to us in our own language. That includes children. Technology is a world kids understand. It is a world they get excited about. And even though the message of the Bible hasn’t changed, the way we hear it and understand it changes all the time.”
So as a result, the God for Kids app was born! It contains an age-old gospel message but shared in a brand new, tech-savvy way.
Most of all, you don’t have to be a tech-savvy Mum (or Dad or any other kind of grown-up) – we’ve done that bit for you. You just need to download, snuggle up with your kid, and explore together. And don’t forget to have fun!
