The Dig for Kids

We are beyond thrilled to share with you something that has taken shape over the last few years in our family. As my husband has gone through the Bible with our oldest child, he has put together an INCREDIBLE resource for parents to take their children through the Bible in a fun and simple way! We can’t wait for you to see it!!

Just launched August 1st,
I introduce to you an Amazon Bestseller:
The Dig for Kids!

Not too long ago my daughter said to my husband, “Dad, I am glad you are a pastor.” When he asked her why, she said, “Because you teach us the Bible.”

The truth is, every parent should be (and can be) a pastor to his or her children. The Dig has been our desire and attempt to teach our children the Bible from an early age. As we share this resource with parents we want to give you the tools to confidently teach your children the Bible too.

In The Dig for Kids parents and children join experienced tour guide Doc, on a journey through different books of the Bible!!

A typical Dig lesson consists of the following four components:

1. The Map: Each lesson has a map. The map tells you and your child where you’ll be going in each lesson. It is a short summary of the study ahead.

2. The Dig: The Dig is the main passage you will be studying. Following each passage will be several questions designed to help conversation and understanding. They are meant to be a guide. You can use them or tweak them to help you talk with your children.

3. The Treasure: The Treasure is the big idea of each lesson. In a short statement, it is what you want your child to remember from the passage you studied.

4. The Display: When an archaeologist finds a treasure, they will clean it up and out it on display for everyone to see. This is the basic idea of the Display. It is the application of the Treasure you have found!

We would love for you to have this resource for your family!

Meet my hubby . . . the author 🙂

Patrick Schwenk grew up going to church wearing clip-on ties, uncomfortable shirts, pants that were too short, and shoes that were too tight (at least that is how he remembers feeling). He was born, raised, and then born again within a conservative evangelical home (and church) in the Midwest. Today, he still loves the church and is thankful to both serve and lead others toward Jesus. He is a father, husband, and pastor. Patrick and his wife Ruth (www.thebettermom.com) met while attending the Moody Bible Institute in Chicago, IL. They have been married for fourteen years and currently have four children ages three to ten. They love serving in ministry, spending time together as a family, reading, drinking lots of coffee, and resting in God’s grace.

  1. Hi,
    I just purchased the PDF version via paypal. However, my paypal account is linked to an old email that I can not access. How can I get the PDF version to come to my new email address (listed in this comment) I can give you my payment receipt number if that helps.
