“Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” This verse in Proverbs made more sense after I had my second child.
I used to bring neighborhood children to my house every Saturday afternoon to share stories from the Bible. Most of them usually came because we always had candy and other treats.
After a few weeks, I noticed there was a lack of Christ-centered children’s learning materials in Ghana. Even our TV channels do not have many Christ-centered children’s videos and songs. If children are not exposed to Christ-centered content from a very young age, they will likely not watch or read Christian content when they grow up. When they are young, it’s their blossoming stage.
That’s why I started an organization called Blossom in January. I produce books, puzzles, board games and building blocks with scriptures and stories from the Bible. I want to merge the Montessori teaching style with the Gospel. So children who use our learning materials will learn to love Jesus.
We are looking to expand as the Holy Spirit leads into the production of videos, songs and a 24-hour TV station with exclusive and entertaining Christ-centered content for children and teenagers. My husband and I currently fund this but I know this idea is from God, and I believe He will help us expand this to reach many more children in other African countries.
