We want to help your family make the most of this summer by encouraging you to spend time together and build your relationships with the Lord and with each other.

This month’s Seeds Family Worship Box contains the ESV Following Jesus Bible and The New City Catechism from Crossway publishers. The Following Jesus Bible will help young hearts see the big story of Jesus as they discover the truth in God’s Word. The New City Catechism is a resource to help your family talk about and memorize core principles of faith in a question and answer format.

We also have a VBS DVD for your family to enjoy and one for your family to give as a gift to your Children’s Ministry at your local church. Finally, we have partnered with Osana Mosquito Repellent Soap to help your family get outside, and to help other families around the world fight against mosquito-borne illnesses.


The ESV Following Jesus Bible is full of content designed to help children understand and enjoy the Bible. Designed for children ages 8–12 as they transition from a beginner’s Bible, nearly every other page features a box answering the who, what, where, when, or why of a particular text. “Seeing Jesus” sections explain how certain Bible passages point to Christ and “Following Jesus” sections connect the Bible with the hearts and lives of young readers.

“As the mother of an 8 year old boy, I was thrilled to learn about the ESV Following Jesus
Bible….with great illustrations,clear definitions of key terms, and character analysis, kids will gain foundational understanding of God’s Word. The ESV Following Jesus Bible is a perfect next step from elementary Bible teaching to the preteen years.”


Throughout the history of the church, Christians have used catechisms—collections of questions and answers designed for memorization and recitation—to teach the core doctrines of the faith. The New City Catechism is a modern-day resource aimed at reintroducing this an- cient method of teaching to Christians today.

This short book lays out 52 questions and answers relat- ed to God, human nature, sin, Christ, the Holy Spirit, and more. This resource can be used as part of your family devotions or around meal times, and can be memorized together as a family over the course of this summer, or over an entire year.

Pastor/Author Timothy Keller said about The New City Cate-chism… “It’s a perfect way for parents to train their kids up in God’s Word.”


We hope Osana Mosquito Repellent Soap will help your family get outside this summer and you can join their mission to help other families around the world fight against mosquito borne illnesses. Osana Mosquito Repellent Soap is an all-natural soap for the entire family. It smells fantastic and it’s safe to use all year long.

But what we like even more than that is Osana is on a mission to help those in areas where mosquitoes make people very sick and even die. (For more information, go to Osanabar.com.) For every package sold, Osana do- nates one bar to those around the world at risk of malaria, dengue, and other mosquito-borne illnesses as well as sanitation basedillnesses. Try it out as you explore the outdoors this summer and know that you are also helping someone in need.


We created these VBS DVD’s as a Greatest Hits version of our very best Seeds Family Worship songs and videos with hand motions. We believe that singing, dancing and worshiping with these DVD’s will add to your summer discipleship and fun!


We provided an additional copy of each DVD for you to give your church as a gift. Our mission is to help get God’s Word into as many homes and hearts as possible around the world. And we know that God’s plan is to spread the Good News of Jesus through the local church. We are thankful for you all joining us in this mission by participating in the Seeds Family Box and with sharing Seeds with your home church. God Bless You All! Keep planting!
