  • What to bring to a Sunday school Classroom

    1. A praying servant A praying servant allows the presence of God in the midst of the classroom. It humbles the servant’s heart and allows him/her to acknowledge that the lesson is taught by God. From time to time we need to remind ourselves that we are just means of delivery of God's message and it's by the grace of God we are called to serve. 2. Something for their eyes Depending on the age of the students, bring a puppet, a dressed up character, videos, pictures, or illustrations of any kind that can help deliver the message. The students will more likely to remember the lesson that has the most interactions with their senses. 3. Something for the ears Fill your lesson with interesting stories that help you deliver the objectives of the lesson. Start or end the lesson with a spiritual song that will help your students direct their focus on God and prayer. 4. Bring God!!! With every lesson you teach, make sure God and His word is the center of attention and that our main goal is to go to heaven. Fill your lesson with relatable Bible verses and stories. Also, end your lesson with actionable items that help the students grow one step closer to God. It's always good to go home with a new memorized Bible verse.

  • What does Pope Shenouda III Say about Fasting?

    I stumbled upon these beautiful sayings and I couldn’t find a better time to share them during lent. This is my personal efforts in translating his sayings. Click here if you want the actual source of his sayings in Arabic. "By true fasting, man can entrain the heart of God" True fasting is in which the fasting person trains self-control and continues with self-control as a way of life." "There must be an abstaining period, because if we ate from the beginning of the day without abstaining, we would become vegetarians and not fasting." "Make sure that fasting has changed anything in you. Consider how much you have fasted and you’re still the same! "The most dangerous thing when some are tired from fasting; where the body is not nourished and the soul is also not fed and this situation makes fasting a period of deprivation or torture, and this is not the spiritual meaning of fasting." "Our fathers didn't fast just to follow the rules. They did not fast in obedience to the commandment, but to love the commandment. Obedience is a beginner’s degree, but love is the degree of maturity and perfection.” "It is known that leaving food or some kind of it is nothing but training to leave everything for God" "Put before you two observations in your fasting: the first is that you do not ask for certain foods that you like. The second is that if put in front of you such desired foods- without asking - do not fill your cravings for them."

If... My Story It all began in 2015 When I became a mother, a creative impulse took over me to create items for my baby girl (from headbands to fabric shoes). Three months after her birth, I made her first quiet book! ​ Another contribution was my service in church. I served in sunday school in my Coptic Orthodox church for many years. I served in several classes from 1st to 12th grade. I realized how kids grew distant from God and church as they got older. With my love to craft and my zeal for my daughter's spiritual growth and my sunday school children, I started making things that can bridge the gap between the little ones and the church. The first thing I ever made was the 7 Sacraments Quiet book and from there I started my journey... Service related Inquiries and discounts? sends us a note! Send Your details were sent successfully!
