free Bible studies... a click away

Thanks for stopping by.  Much has changed since I first opened this blog in January of 2009. At that time I was looking for a place to host the Bible studies for children, teens, and families that I had written.  I wanted to provide them free of charge and a blog seemed like a great answer. 

Since then, much has changed but the Bible studies remain.  However, they are now available at  Please click there and scroll down to see the available Bible Studies.  You will be able to download them free of charge.

Thank you!

project Salud y Paz...

Five years ago, I felt God's tug at my heart... write Bible studies for children.  That tug became an all-consuming fire and for four years I wrote individual Bible studies for children, teens and families as well as all of the children's curriculum for our church, including VBS.   More truthfully, I should say "God wrote... I typed."  

Four years ago, I put the individual Bible studies and some of the curriculum online in .pdf format and offered them to be used free of charge.  When asked why, I would simply answer, "God freely gave them to me, who I am to charge for them?"  

In February, I reformatted several studies for eBook and electronically published them, still offering them free of charge.  To date, almost 700 copies have been downloaded!  It blows my mind!!

I still have people say things like, "these have value, you should put a price on them to reflect the value of them."  Honestly, I understand this line of reasoning.  However, how do you put a price on God's Word?  

I've had other people say, "I would pay you for this.  Please let me give you something."  And, my answer has been, "pay it forward."

Last night, my man had a brilliant idea... project Salud y Paz...
Salud y Paz is the organization that runs the clinic where Chad and Emme spent their time in Guatemala.  Salud y Paz also sponsors other clinics and schools in Guatemala.  This organization has become near and dear to our hearts.

So... today, I'm introducing Salud y Paz to you.  If you feel as if you want to give toward any of the Bible studies that you've downloaded or read, please click on through to Salud y Paz and give to the health, healing and education of the people of Guatemala.

Thank you!!

HIStory eggs...

In years past, both our church and our homeschool cooperative have made and studied HIStory eggs... 12 plastic eggs filled with tokens of the story of Redemption from Adam and Eve to the Marriage Feast of the Lamb.

The free downloadable file with explanation, instructions and template can be found here.

This has become one of our families traditions as we celebrate the Resurrection and the Redemption we're given.

My Body~His Temple

A study for 9-12 year olds on keeping our hearts and minds pure.

Why? finding truth when nothing else makes sense

I wrote these studies for friends who went through a house fire.  Sometimes it's hard to make sense of life.  Thankfully, the Bible gives us truth when nothing else makes sense.

for 9-12 year olds and for teens

available through

After a long time of praying and searching... I have found a site that will allow me to host these studies free of charge!  

You can find them at and search for Heidi Kreider or try this link...

The one little glitch is that I have to manually reformat each study.  I'm learning much as I go and so sometimes it's format, unformat, format, reformat.  

Thanks for your patience!
