Letting Christ shine through should not just be for those times teachers are in a Christian environment, but in every situation that teachers encounter in their daily lives.

We as Christians understand that the Bible is the true word of God and we have a direct line through prayer to God.

Ultimately, what I learn will better equip me to fulfill the Great Commission and do so leading like Jesus.

While looking at different curriculums, there is a big importance of looking at the different methods of teaching students to grow faith development. To look at the effectiveness of the different curriculums when coming to teaching the grades from third through fifth grade I reviewed Concordia Publishing House’s “Growing in Christ- Middle Grades” compared to Faith Inkubator’s, “My Bible.” Looking at both of the curriculums, I used how they used the family, technology, and different ways of learning to show which was more effective in teaching students. I believe that Faith Inkubator’s “My Bible” is the more effective curriculum. When looking at both curriculums they both have an array of strengths within them. Faith Inkubator’s “My Bible” uses visually appealing aspects through their technology.

I personally will do better in being mindful that I am a living epistle being read by others and will be more consistent in my evangelism so that the world will see Christ in me at all times. This book served as a gentle reminder and has assisted me in staying on track with the mission at hand, which is to have the right heart, mind, and spirit of God when sharing the Gospel, winning souls, and in discipleship, so that those we are teaching and leading will be trained to do the same with those who they are leading and this process is to continue until His return. I found this book to be full of valuable nuggets based on Scripture and that I will apply in my daily life.

I always knew the answers to the Sunday school questions, but I wanted to know more. I wanted to know Jesus in a real way. I would pray asking God to “give me more understanding about all that He was.” In the eleventh grade, I began to have intense dreams about preaching and teaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

One of the keywords in the book’s title is ‘practical’ as Kevin Gary Smith successfully brings his points across so that readers can apply them to their day-to-day lives. When partnered with the Holy Spirit, however, the book not only fulfills it’s aim but also gives it’s audience a clearer picture of God’s greatness and the incredible worth of His Son’s sacrifice upon the cross. I would recommend this work to all Christians. It is important to understand how the Old and New Testaments work together to paint a picture of God’s incredible grace and love for His people.
