About me and the blog

Hi, my name is Rachel Ball. Welcome to my blog; thanks for stopping by.

I used to be a school teacher but am now self-employed. I write Sunday School material for Go Teach Publications. I have been a contributor to Go Teach’s toddler Group lesson books too.  I have also written Bible stories for under sevens for Child Evangelism Fellowship.

Each week in term time I run a toddler group with a team of people. I tell a Bible story, provide a fun craft and lead the song time. From time to time I run workshops for teachers.

This blog is a collection of ideas for crafts, Bible stories and memory verses. Some ideas are very general, others are specific to a Bible story or season/celebration. I use pinterest to search for creative ideas and share the ideas that I love.

There are PDF’s for several of the craft activities that are free to download and the occasional book review.

In my free time my family keeps me busy and I enjoy dabbling in art and craft, especially crochet.

Comments are welcome. Please share your own ideas.

  1. I found you because I was trying to find out about the CEF work in Scotland, since I went there as a summer missionary with CEF in 1977, to Renfrew, and worked with the Somerville’s. Your blog is wonderful. My husband and I are on the CEF board here in Quebec with Jenne Phillips and Mary Porter. We work in french, but your blog is still helpful and very uplifting, thank you so much.

  2. Hi Rachel,
    I illustrate for Go Teach – have done a few toddler illustrations, so I’ve been sent sample copies. Just wanted to say I really like the way the toddler lessons are told – really child friendly!

    1. Hi Kirsty, I really enjoyed being part of the Toddler Group Lessons team. I like your illustrations that you’ve done for Go Teach very much. We use the lessons in our Sunday school. I’ve had a look at your website – will be putting a link to it on the blog 🙂
