Series: Bible in a year with your kids Week #11 FREE Pack

     We are finishing the law books this week!  I don't know about you, but I am happy to come to the end of the Pentateuch!  They were exciting and we learned a lot of new information, but this weeks reading was hard to come up with notebooking pages for.  I ended up going back to God in prayer and re-reading the passages looking for His insight.  Which of course, He always gives!!  Is there anything you learned in the first 5 books of the Bible that you would like to share?  Leave it in the comments if you don't mind!

If you want to catch up with us, please go here.
