In 2012, Brenda Hicks was asked to take over teaching her church’s third grade Sunday School class. Third grade is the year the children of her church receive their first “real” Bibles. She gladly accepted the challenge and spent the next four years writing a curriculum that would teach children the wonders of the books of the Bible.

Brenda holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from Kansas State University in English with a Creative Writing emphasis and a Master of Arts Degree from Wichita State University. She is also a graduate of all four years of Disciple Bible Study. Prior to writing this curriculum, she created a bible based preschool curriculum with her sister-in-law, a Kindergarten teacher, which was purchased and utilized in several Kansas churches and daycare facilities. Brenda lives with her husband and two sons in Winfield, Kansas where she works as the Director of Financial Aid at Southwestern College.
