Lisa Updike, the Director of Children’s Ministries at Covenant Presbyterian in Harrisonburg, VA, has been in love with Jesus since she was a little girl. She has extensive ministry experience, which includes curriculum writing, training children’s volunteers, and spearheading children’s programs in several churches over the last 30 years.
In working with children and youth, she found that kids understand the importance of the Bible and value it. They know that through it they can know God’s heart! So they pick up a Bible, flip through the pages, look at the maps, read a little bit, but end up putting the Bible down, discouraged, because they don’t know how to begin. She remembers feeling the same way. Lisa wanted to provide a tool to help solve this problem: a tool that would benefit parents, teachers, and kids alike. She hopes that The Bible is NOT Boring will serve as such a tool.
