Behold Your God: Seeking Him Early was born out of the belief that our children need deep, theologically-rich teaching in the early years of their lives. This material seeks to lead students and teachers through a study of God's character and how to know Him, in a way that is both profound and easy for children to grasp.
This curriculum takes the content of both Behold Your God: Rethinking God Biblically and Behold Your God: The Weight of Majesty and synthesizes it into material for children in classroom settings for Sunday school, Christian school, and homeschool use.
Women with years of experience in formal education, homeschool education, and Sunday School education have labored to make this material age appropriate and fit for a high-quality classroom experience.
Behold Your God: Seeking Him Early is offered in 3 installments:
- Level 1 is designed for 5-7 year olds
- Level 2 is designed for 8-9 year olds
- Level 3 is designed for 10-11 year olds.
Each installment is 26-weeks long, covering the same basic material at different levels of comprehension, and includes a thorough Teacher's Manual, Teacher Resource Packet, and age-appropriate Student Workbooks.
This product contains the Teacher's Manual and Resource Packet for Level 1.
- A sturdy spiral-bound 26-week Teacher's Manual including weekly devotionals for the teachers, lessons, activity ideas, memory prompts, and much more!
- A reproducible Teacher's Resource Packet including weekly summaries for parents and visual aids.

"The Behold Your God: Seeking Him Early Curriculum, written by John & Misty Snyder and published by Media Gratiae, calls children to know and love the God of the Bible. While the design serves teachers and students with thorough lesson plans, engaging activities, and easy-to-use visuals, the most outstanding aspect of Behold Your God is its saturation with Scripture. As children are taught what knowing God means, they will be encouraged to examine what they believe about God, compare those beliefs with how God reveals Himself in His Word, and follow Him through faith in Jesus. With the Behold Your God: Seeking Him Early Curriculum, Media Gratiae has produced a resource that will serve families and children in the church for years to come."
