About Me

I help busy parents and church leaders teach fun, flexible, multi-age, budget-friendly Bible object lessons that enhance the spiritual growth of children.

How would you like to teach engaging Bible lessons kids can’t resist?

How would you like to create a fun teaching atmosphere that sparks the imagination of children?

How would you like to teach Biblical truth to children that enhances their spiritual growth?

How would you like to receive resources that will help you to share the gospel and expand the Kingdom?

My Background:

I have a graduate degree in education with a focus on developing curriculum and instruction. My life journey includes over 30 years (so far!) in Children’s Ministry: Sunday School, puppetry, Vacation Bible School, Children’s Church, and various outreach ministries. Now I get to teach and train Bible Teachers all over the world. God is so good!

I am the author of four books. You can find themย HERE.

Why the name FutureFlyingSaucers?

My husband and I keep a notebook of funny things my kids have said over the years. When I was searching for a name, my husband recommended that I look through that book.

One morning my 4 year old son came to me and proudly announced, “Hey Mama! I’m gonna be a flying saucer when I grow up!

I read that, laughed, and then thought about Isaiah 40:31 and how those who trust in the Lord will soar on the wings of eagles.

Isn’t that what we want for our children? We desire for them to trust the Lord through faith, and then soar with Him as they walk in His ways.

But this takes time.

Walking in the ways of God, sanctification…it’s a process.

And we’re always looking to the future and hoping in Jesus’ return.

And so, Future…Flying…Saucers was born. This site is for parents and church leaders who teach the Bible to children. Who, in their imaginations, might want to be flying saucers (instead of on wings of eagles) and soar with Jesus as they grow and serve Him in the future.

All of the resources on this site are created to help our kids soar.

  3. Thanks for stopping by my blog today! I am always happy to see new faces ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Your blog is wonderful and unlike any I’ve seen before. I homeschooled our kids for a couple of years; very memorable years that I wouldn’t trade for anything! Tough, but rewarding! Hang in there!

    Thanks for sharing your family’s journey with us! I’m just starting into the homeschool journey with my 3- and 1-year-olds. As a homeschool graduate myself, I’m so encouraged by hearing other family’s stories.

  6. I am a homeschool mom who loves to serve in Awana as well as children ministry at church. It is so refreshing to have solid material to encourage the spiritual growth or each child that receives your messages. I’ve used so many and I have to admit that the children are captivated with each one. The Superhero message was so powerful and the dialogue that it provoked left parents inquiring about how they can reach their own children. So thank you for your faithfulness to God’s Word and not deviating from truth. May the Lord continue using this ministry to stir up the hearts of His people.

      THANK YOU so much for your words of encouragement!! Honestly, I have been battling some technical difficulties with my blog resources and I’ve been so frustrated. Once again the Lord provides encouragement when it is needed. Thank you, friend. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hi – I am excited to find your website through Pinterest and to have just signed up for your newsletter via email. The freebie about the 7 things that God hates is going to be my very next lesson for my 3rd-5th graders. I have been a pastor’s wife for about 10 years now but haven’t felt the Lord calling me to teach a children’s class until recently, and to be honest, I don’t feel very confident in teaching yet even though I know I can do it with His help. I’m constantly looking for “helps” and I’m truly blessed to have found you! Thank you for your blog, and may God continue to bless your work!

  8. What resources are available for a small church, that does not have funds available for Sunday school and they are looking for curriculum? I am speaking of a church of thirty people that don’t have access to a copy machine and can scarcely pay the light bill.

  9. I love the sample lesson. We are doing a Bible Study with our 6 year old daughter and your lesson includes some great activities to supplement with. Thank you so much!

  10. Thank you for your lesson on Acts 14. I wanted to read another Children’s Lesson before class, and this is great. God bless you and your family.

  11. I have always been able to copy and paste your lessons in Word and now your site tells me that it is protected. I copy them so I can take out what pictures I don’t need and save on printing. Why have they just now been protected?

    1. futureflyingsaucers

      Hey Debi! I am sorry for the inconvenience. There have been websites that are stealing blog posts and images from sites like mine. I have had images and entire lessons copied. Therefore, I had to take measures so copyright infringement does not take place.

  12. I am so happy that I found your website, I belong to a migrant ministry. There are like 30 migrant youth that come to mass to our parish every single Sunday. Our purpose is to teach these kids the Gods Gospel. I loved your examples on how we can teach the kids, I know for sure that kids learn more if they see objects like you present your lessons. These kids don’t speak English but I am going to buy some of your lessons and translate them into Spanish. God bless you for doing these kind of work.
    Respectfully,
    Ana

      Ana, if you write up any of the lessons in Spanish, would you email them to me? I’d love to offer them to others who need them. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you!! ~ Anne Marie

  13. With several others, we share weekly Bible lessons with senior adults in our local nursing home. Their focus time is limited. Visuals are such a plus. This is a treat to find for that ministry! God bless for your talent and sharing!

  14. This is very great. Am really impress. I am a children bible teacher in Nigeria and I love children. Your site is very resourceful. Thank you so much for helping.

  15. Hi there! I discovered your website last year – thank you for such wonderful resources. What a blessing to the children of my church! I am teaching through your book, Walk This Way, and in some of the lessons under “Materials”, it mentions using resources that I do not see in the book. For example – pg. 10 – picture of a ship’s rudder, pg. 15 – game show cards, etc. Next to each one it says – “See Resources Page”. Am I missing something?

    Thank you for any clarification you can give and God bless you!

  16. Olรก! Estou mais uma vez aqui. Gostei da nova formataรงรฃo do site, ficou ainda melhor. Que Deus continue te abenรงoando!

  19. Your resources have helped me so much to become a better Sunday School teacher. The kids love the object lessons and when telling the stories (Bible lessons) …all eyes are on me. I feel as though you are a dear friend and I appreciate yo so much.

  20. Hi just found your site through Pinterest. I love this application process I teach kindergarten age Sunday school and VBS. Iโ€™m so excited to read through your A-Z application.

      Hey Cheryl! I’m so glad you found FFSaucers. ๐Ÿ™‚ I hope you will check out the Free object lessons page as well to find even more fun activities. Welcome!!

  21. Hi, I came across your page on pinterest as I was looking for an activity regarding “The pool of Bethesda.” I came across your object lesson and I love it. I teach Grades 3 & 4 and I like to get them involved in the story. I love the idea of the bowl of water and trying to get to it before others do. Thank you for sharing! God Bless!

      Hello April! Thank you so much for letting me know. Thank you for teaching those children!! ~ Anne Marie

  22. Looking at this for our children’s church, would you mind sharing what your biblical beliefs are ๐Ÿ™‚

  23. I really enjoy what I learn by following you on FB, YouTube, Pinterest and this website. There are so many opportunities and resources here. It’s awesome. This is God’s place to refine, equip, train and strengthen every teacher. There is so much information that I am taking it little by little. I bought 4 of your object lesson books which I find fascinating, fun, and easy to do. In everything I read from you I learn something refreshing. Everyday I feel that I am expanding my mind, my understanding and knowledge of this wonderful gift of being a teacher. FFS has helped me dedicate myself exclusively to being a teacher. There are other areas in which I have served in the church but being a teacher is my passion and now I won’t divide my time to other things except being a teacher. Thanks to your ministry I can become better now. Everything here is very affordable. Many things are free! What a blessing! I’m shocked. The only thing I think about now is about learning more and moving forward. I admire your dedication and service beyond measure. I am happy that God has formed you to train teachers and teach children. All the teachings are very clear. I am surprised to finally meet someone who understands the seriousness and importance of training as a teacher and who understands how important children’s hearts are to God and how important it is to attend to their spiritual need. I pray to God that he continues to strengthen and help you in this ministry that he has placed in your hands. Thank you!!!
    This is one of the best resources I have ever known.
