Hi Karyn. I took my 2yr old Grandson to a playgroup last Friday and they were playing songs from your “My First Hymnal”. I am wondering if and where I can purchase this collection of songs so that my wife and I can play them for our Grandson. I am living in Australia and my email address is below. Kind regards and many blessings. Keep up the good work. Roger.
Thank you, Roger. My First Hymnal is available now only as mp3 download. You can find it online at this link: https://www.amazon.com/My-First-Hymnal-Favorite-Bible/dp/B000T044UI/
Hi Karyn. Unfortunately Amazon.com will not allow me to process this. I am in Australia and have no problem with Amazon.com.au. do you have any other suggestions. Kind Regards Roger
We found it on Christianbook.com, but the description says it in not available outside the United States. There may be a publishing rights issue that keeps this material within the US. We also found it on iTunes, so you might check there to see if they will sell it to you. Lastly, there is reliable site that deals in used books and CDs: Alibris.com. We found a few used CDs of My First Hymnal at this link: http://www.alibris.com/musicsearch?keyword=My+First+Hymnal&mtype=M&hs.x=27&hs.y=32
All the best!
Thanks Karyn. All done. Downloaded from iTunes. Thanks for all your help. Regards Roger

My son Jesse, who is autistic, has been watching your videos since he was 3 years old. He is now 18 and still watches and sings to your music every day. Thank you for your ministry to children. Sometime I would like to send you a video clip of him singing and dancing to your videos.
Hi there. I was wondering if there was a specific Bible to be used along with the folders/ I noticed that Bible stories are listed that are included within that lesson folder but is there a Bible where we find those stories listed? For example in the “I take care of my body” folder 4 stories are listed including; Daniel chooses the right food, and Jonathan eats honey. I know I can find the more well known stories in any Bible but is there one that’s meant to be used with this series?
Thanks for your question. There is not a specific Bible to be used. Karyn’s favorite full-text children’s Bible is the International Children’s Bible (ICB). Many of the stories in the folders will also be found in the Day by Day Kids Bible, and the Begin-to-Read Bible, but since each of these products was created at different times in Karyn’s long career, no effort has been made to coordinate them.

Can the 3rd-5th grade curriculums be adapted for use with 1st and 2nd graders, also?
Will it mess up the curriculum if we start using the Fall quarter in the Spring? Are they season specific in any way that would make it better to wait till Fall to begin?
The 3rd-5th grade materials require reading and writing skills that the younger children will not have. And, the subject matter of the older levels may be less concrete, and more conceptual, than is appropriate for the younger children. But we won’t say a creative teacher can’t make it work. Thanks for your question!
Thank you for your question. All Winter Quarters start with the Christmas story, so you will find yourself teaching Christmas lessons in the Summer, if you start the Fall Quarter in the Spring.
Where can I get all your dvds for children

Years ago I attended a children’s ministry retreat for Calvary Chapel in Murrietta Hot Springs CA. I remember that you were there and you taught a workshop where you presented the Gospel message using a piece of paper shaping it into various different things. House, plane, rocket and eventually a cross. I was wondering if you have any resources on that? I’ve searched the Internet, but haven’t found anything that reminded me of what you did that day. It impacted me greatly and I’ve used it when teaching at times, but would love to have something in writing with the beautiful way you illustrated it.
I have posted the instructions for the Paper Cross story at this link.

Hi Mrs. Henley,
I’m Jillian Walker and I’m 12 years old and I live in Jacksonville I wanted to thank you so much for creating those play song videos! My older sister, Anne Scott, who’s 13 years old has Apraxia and Autism so it can be tough for her to express herself but, whenever you start to sing, she whistles and claps her hands. When she’s happy, she also brings out her biggest and brightest smile and uses the word “happy”. She adores all of your songs, especially “I feel like a giggle”, “Setting things in order” and “Psalm 150”. In the part of your song that says, “My hands want to clap.” Anne Scott claps along with you. You have made a huge impact on our lives especially Anne Scott’s! Thanks a million for everything!
– Jillian Walker
Thanks so much for letting me know about Anne Scott and her response to my songs. It’s truly a privilege to be part of her life and to know that my music has brightened her days. You are so thoughtful and gracious to let me know. I can tell that you’re a wonderful sister and a wise young woman.
Much love and best wishes to you and Anne Scott and your whole family!
Karyn, I am a mom of 4 in West Virginia An 18 year old daughter, 15 year old son , 13 year old daughter and our surprise baby blessing 16 month old Toby ! We first found your video “Five Little Lady Bugs” when we were on a work trip in California in 2000. We attended a Calvary Chapel church and found your resources. Our 18 year old was then 1 year old and absolutely loved the video! So we purchased a lot more- on VHS of course 🙂 Your videos were played over and over for many years through our first 3 kids preK years. Even the grandparents had all the songs memorized.
Never did my husband and I imagine that we would once again be playing the videos in 2017 for our 1 year old ! God is good and knew that your ministry would once again be used in our household and that we would all be singing and dancing along with little Toby to your precious VHS videos!! They were a treasure that we have kept over all these years. And will be passed down to grandchildren. Thank you for following Gods call and loving children. We are blessed.
Hi Karyn. I’m writing an article on love tonight and your name came to me as I remembered a story you shared at Brentwood Hills Church of Christ in Nashville years ago. I’d love to know when it was if you remember. It would add to the story I’m writing.
You talked about how you could share your faith without a Bible. You talked about how love was the greatest feeling in the world and that self-sacrifice was the greatest form of love.
Do you have that in an article or resource online? Thanks in advance! Brent
Dear Karyn, why is “God’s Story” out of print? It’s the best thing since sliced bread! I am a minister, and I’ve scooped up innumerable copies second hand from all kinds of sources, and just ordered another – I’ve given so many away, first to my grandchildren, but mostly to adults – new Christians, nearly-Christians, etc. I actually read right through it myself for my own devotions a few years ago, and found it immensely helpful and satisfying, so I am not embarrassed to recommend or give it to adults! I’ve just handed a copy to an MA student in English lit! Can’t it be reprinted? (If so, couldn’t we have “Covenant Box” or “Promise Box” or something instead of Ark Box? It’s my one and only complaint!)
Mary, we are so glad you asked that question! We are happy to say it was repackaged and retitled as The Day by Day Kids Bible – same text and illustrations as “God’s Story” but with a new title and cover. See it on Amazon, in the UK:
In the US: https://www.amazon.com/Day-Kids-Bible-Readers-Tyndale/dp/0842355367/
Thank you for sharing God’s Story! Now, we hope you will find it easier to share as The Day by Day Kid’s Bible.

In the Jesus curriculum Qtr 3 lsn 13, the #3 activity is a Crossword Puzzle but I do not see the clues. Can you give me a clue what the clues are because I’m clueless?
Blessings to you,
P S love love love your Curriculum and use it exclusively for my 4th/5th grade SS class.
Thank you for letting us know. We were clueless that the page 81 of Quarter 3 was clueless! It’s odd that all these years, no one has called us on this error, until you. This was a slip of the text layout in a revised edition, and we missed this error when proofing. We will proceed to update our master files.
In the meantime, attached is a PDF of page 81 showing the complete crossword, with clues. Clue #1 should be the opposite of taken. The answer to Clue #2 is “POWER.” This should get you off on the right foot.
Thanks, again, for your gentle calling this to our attention. We are glad you are enjoying the curriculum.
All the best,
Ralph Henley, Chief Manager
