Welcome to The Finish Line where we are racing through life, living out the finished work of the cross of Jesus Christ. Every session we are going to go through this race together and come to The Finish Line where we are reminded that our sinful nature was crucified and buried with Jesus. When Jesus rose in victory over the grave, He showed us that we have the power of the Holy Spirit to live a life of righteousness in Christ Jesus and because of His mercy and grace, we can have victory over every area of our lives.
You and your children are about to encounter Jesus!
Everyone participating in The Finish Line should have a bible with the New and Old Testaments. I use the New Living Translation for all my teaching. Feel free to pause the teaching videos and find the scriptures with your kids or you may want to have them find all the scriptures before you begin and mark their bibles with a bookmark for easy access during the video. I also highly recommend letting children highlight and write in their bibles. It makes the word personal for them and they will come back to these verses in the future. You may even want to use colors that coordinate with the flags so it will be recognizable to them at later dates. Have fun digging into God's word together as a family!

The teaching videos and all the course material is original and written by me, Leann Woelk. The teaching videos will unlock when you purchase the course at Handle with Care School. Samples of the digital resources are accessible in the preview mode and when you purchase the course you will have access to a downloadable version to print. The course has been designed to be a one time purchase for a family to use at home. You will have access to the course as long as it remains in Handle with Care School in teachable.com.
My hope in the teaching videos is that you feel like I am right there in your home coming alongside of you as you teach your kids biblical truths. You will quickly see I am not perfect in my presentation, I might stumble over a word or I may drop a prop just like in real life. My goal is not a perfect performance, my goal is to be authentic, genuine and real so that it provides opportunity for you and your kids to have conversations about their faith. I share my stories because God has asked me to share these personal moments with you so that you will be encouraged to share your own stories of your faith journey and how God became personal to you.
All videos and course materials are best viewed on a computer or iPad rather than a phone.
The videos are not to be downloaded and stored on your computer. All videos are available to you for as long as the course remains on Handle with Care School.
Each session gives you videos and resources to help you teach your kids biblical truths. The teaching videos correspond to the downloadable pdfs. I may also suggest songs that will help you with scripture memorization (Volume 3 Romans Road is highly recommended from Jumpstart3 ) and activities from various websites that will enhance your sessions.
It's up to you to choose the order of videos, songs or activities but if you'd like some direction here is what I would recommend:
- Victory Verse
- Online Teaching Video
- Tune Up Time
We all need community! If you'd like to have an interactive experience on-line, please go to the public group The Finish Line Facebook Group and feel free to upload fun pictures or videos of your kids learning scriptures or getting creative with activities.
A huge "Thank you" to my family and friends for working on this project with me! I couldn't have done it without you.
A special thanks for Pastor Micheal Voll and my church North Pointe Community Church here in Edmonton, AB for their support and use of their equipment and facility to make this project possible.
