CBH Ministries: Seasons of Faith Series

We used to listen to a family radio program called Down Gilead Lane every night when my boys were younger. They loved the stories and spiritual lessons and looked forward to them each and every night. Recently we had the opportunity to review the Seasons of Faith illustrated book and audio series by CBH Ministries. They had such a familiar, comforting feeling about them and I soon discovered why. CBH (Children's Bible Hour) Ministries is also the producer of Down Gilead Lane!

If you are familiar with Keys To Kids, you will recognize the voice of Uncle Charlie in CBH's new Season's of Faith series. This series was written to encourage children to learn about their faith in God.

Each book, an adaptation of the radio script from Children's Bible Hour, focuses on a season of growth:
  • Spring: a season that parallels a believers new life in Christ.
  • Summer: a season of growing in faith and producing fruit.
  • Autumn: a season of struggle, temptation, making mistakes and growing through the hard times.
  • Winter: a season of difficult times, deep struggles and learning to lean on God for comfort and peace.

Each book also has a set of downloadable discussion questions that can encourage conversation with your children.

Price: $10 each

Here is a description of each book from the website, from Spring to Winter:

In Race with Midnight, "Becky spends spring break on her cousin Sarah's horse farm in Montana. Taking horse rides amidst the beautiful mountains and valleys, Becky tries to share her faith with Sarah as she talks about God's creation. Will Sarah listen?"

In You Can't Come In, "Adam and his new friend Zack decide to build a tree fort one warm summer day. After zooming down a hill and falling into a muddy pond, Zack asks Adam about going to church and salvation. Will Adam be able to explain his faith to Zack?"
"Batter up! When Brad accidentally breaks the ice cream shop’s sign," in Seventy Times Seven, "the owner forgives Brad. But when his best friend Doug ruins Brad’s favorite baseball cap, will he be able to forgive Doug?"

"When Thomás moves away from his neighborhood and into a mobile home in his grandparents’ backyard, he misses his friends. There’s nothing to do around the apple orchard with no friends, his dad works a lot, and his little brother was hurt in an accident. All his sister wants to do is play with her dolls. Will Thomás be able to rely on God to get through the difficult times?" Find out in Braving the Storm.

These soft cover books are enjoyable to listen to, reinforce basic spiritual principles and have beautiful water color illustrations. My boys enjoyed the feeling of cuddling on the couch and listening to an inspirational story just before bedtime. And I especially enjoyed being able to listen for a change! Please note, however, that these are mainstream Christian books and we do not agree doctrinally with their "plan" of salvation mentioned at the end of the book.
