Thank you for providing such a great Biblically strong foundation for us to use!
My two daughters (age 7 and 4) recently attended VBS at our church. Their reaction to it was nothing short of amazing. They came home every day singing songs about Jesus and God's love. They were willing to share the dances they learned, and the lessons of the day, which were easy for them to remember. Thank you very much for bringing joyful songs of Jesus back into their lives.
