Crafts for Christian Values
From the Series Christian Crafts
“Values” is an abstract word that is expected to be practiced in a very concrete way. And so, best-selling crafts author Kathy Ross offers some hands-on projects that help children translate values concepts into action. Among the clearly described and beautifully illustrated projects are a stable to keep track of church attendance, a gratitude jar to help record and remember the kindness of others, and a mustard seed necklace as a reminder of the power of faith.

Each one has an appropriate Scripture quotation to reinforce its stated purpose. . . Church-school teachers and parents will find these craft ideas useful and fun to create.” —School Library Journal
