My Big Book of Catholic Bible Stories With almost 200 stories, this book is an excellent resource for children and families to grow together in their faith and knowledge of Catholic tradition.  It uses selections from the actual text of the highly respected and readable New Revised Standard Version, Catholic Edition, including stories from the Deuterocanonical Books.  Along with stories from actual Bible text, My Big Book of Catholic Bible Stories includes additional elements.  Each of these elements will help encourage the child to talk to God, to understand the meaning of new words from the passage, to learn quotes from saints and other important figures, and to go deeper in their faith by cross-referencing the CCC and applying the lesson to their lives. With its thorough teaching of Catholic faith, Bible stories, and classic art, this Bible Storybook will be a welcome addition to Catholic homes, schools, and churches.

  1. Hi Lisa,

    My wife and I have been using your worksheets for 4 years now for my oldest daughter (almost 10 y/o) and 2 years for my middle daughter (7 y/o). My youngest (4 y/o) will also use them when she learns to read better. We’ve combo’d your worksheets with Magnifikid missals and have found this system to be invaluable in teaching our faith. Our children go to a Montessori Academy and we provide their catechism. Our oldest made her firt Holy Communion when 7 y/o and our middle daughter is on track to do the same this spring. Are you familiar with the Magnifikid publication? Please go to magnicat.com to check it out. One thought I had was to perhaps have a question or 2 focus on an element of the liturgy each week. Magnifikid does this in each weekly missal and we try to talk more about that part of Mass each week. With Latin on the horizon again for the ordinary of the Mass (i.e. Sanctus, Agnus Dei) maybe there could even be a question pertaining to this as well from time to time? Just some thoughts…

    Keep up the great work and God Bless you for this ministry you provide!

  2. Bruce, thank you so very much for your kind comment. I really agree with you that Magnifikid is a fantastic resource! I’ve shared your Latin suggestion with Elyse, who does our Mass Worksheet and we’ll definitely see if we can try to implement this in the future. Thank you for your kind support of CatholicMom.com!
