The perfect resource for family camping trips or church or homeschool groups.
"In her new book, S'more Time with God, Nancy Ferguson offers a helping hand to families and groups who want to get closer to God while getting away from it all. With Nancy's creative and age-appropriate devotions, our temporary homes, be they tents or pop-up campers, become tabernacles for family faith, spiritual growth, and enduring memories. Use these interactive experiences, and you'll never look in the water, eat camp food, or pack a trash bag in the same way again." —Revs. Mitzi and Troy Lesher-Thomas
"Nancy Ferguson has now written the resource she craved in her many years as a camp director and as a camping enthusiast with her own family. Whether used in an organized group camp or by an individual family in the tent or RV setting, S'more Time with God fills an important niche for anyone looking to introduce spiritual practices to young children--connecting outdoor settings and the natural curiosity of young children to a faith journey. I will want to give a copy to all our camp leaders, as well as to the church leaders doing their own family camping retreats at our sites!" —Lisa Jean Hoefner, Executive Director, Camp and Retreat Ministries, Oregon-Idaho Conference of The United Methodist Church
"Ferguson really knows children. She also knows what type of information adults need when leading children. Devotional, teacher and camp-leader resource, and good planning help, S’more Time With God will be appreciated by church and school groups, and families." —Donna Eggett, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
"I certainly wish that I had this book available when my children were young. I homeschooled and we spent countless days on nature walks discovering the genius of God's creation. This book is full of stories to share and insights to glean about God's handiwork and how we can do our part to take care of this earth. Lots of hands on lessons, this book is sure to be a favorite for young families and church groups." —Patti Chadwick, Book Bargains & Previews
"This well-balanced mix of ingredients helps connect God to everyday life and makes for memories and moments that will last."—MTL Magazine, June 2011
"There are so many things that I like about the book, beginning with the title. What a great concept! As I read through parts of it, my mind traveled to times when I have been camping with my family and how this resource would have added to our experience. Intentionally including God in the day through activities, conversation and prayer seems like a great family building adventure." —Bruce Lawson, Christian Formation Department, Covenant Church
"S’more Time with God excels at providing families or summer camps with easy to implement experiences that engage children in faith formation while on camping trips or outdoor adventures. These daily devotions draw children into biblical texts and activities that intentionally incorporate natural settings. Families and camp programs that want to help children grow closer to God while enjoying time in the beauty of creation will find this book a valuable resource." —Kevin Witt, Camp and Retreat Ministry Office, Leadership Ministries,GBOD | The United Methodist Church, Nashville, TN
"S’more Time with God will enrich any outdoor adventure by linking experiences in nature with recognition and reflection of God and the larger stories of Biblical faith. Fills an important niche in 'claiming the time' for family trips, Christian campgrounds, and church groups. You’ll want a copy for every family group who uses your site." —RAC (Religiously Affiliated Camps) newsletter, Fall 2011
