 Series Overview:

Kids love to be in the kitchen.  They may even love helping prepare something delicious!  Having a plan or a recipe usually helps, too.  Just like having a plan in the kitchen helps the meal we hope to enjoy, the stories of how the Old Testament prophets are like a cookbook that helped people prepare for the Savior that God would send one day.  Even though there's no exact recipe, kids will find that they can prepare themselves for a loving relationship with God when they 1) trust God 2) talk to God 3) listen to God 4) leave the results to God.
