After growing up with four sisters in Illinois, then raising two daughters, Shirley Kufeldt and her husband left Illinois and her daughters to retire to Northern Wisconsin in 2007. Having participated in Bible studies for over 30 years and hearing of the efforts of so many others over the years to document their personal walk of faith, she developed the Bible Bites series. Mrs. Kufeldt participates in Tea Party activities as time allows and cares for her one grandchild (when asked) with joy.
What age range is your book for?
A: Probably fifth grade, age ten and older, all through adult hood.
Can you share a memory of yours or a story of you from when you were within the age range of your target readers?
How has life changed for children today than when you were that age?
How is life still the same?
What was your favorite toy or activity when you were younger?
What inspired this book and how did you decide on the age range for your book?
There is one other very important consideration that I’d like to mention. I attended a support group for a number of years when I lived in Illinois. The books were large, lots of pages and blanks to fill in. Many times, I was the only one who ever did the homework about codependency. So many people attended for just one study or only one session. They gave up on themselves and how God could intervene on their behalf because they wouldn’t do the homework. Bible Bites makes that process so much easier because it’s only one verse at a time, at home, no homework, no confrontation, no shame. Just one sinner in need of hope and finding that in God.
WHY BIBLE BITES?
For too many people, reading the Bible, God’s Word, is too much of a challenge so they neglect picking up a Bible and do not learn what God has to say about any number of topics. Too many people only know God as judge who only punishes sinners, but have a misguided conception of His love, grace and compassion. They blame God for the sins others commit against them. They live their lives based on misconceptions about God, and a secular lifestyle is the result.
We each look differently at Scripture, and respond to and reflect on God’s Word based on “where we are today.” In a non-threatening manner, Seekers are introduced to God as the One who loves them unconditionally and pursues them by answering prayer His Way:Definitely, Denied, Delayed, Differently, Distributed a bit at a time.
- Learn, memorize and meditate on Bible verses
- List current prayer requests
- Respond and react to God’s Word “where you are each day”
- Quickly Journal each day in a small topical booklet with a daily Scripture verse
- Introduce God as the One who you them unconditionally
- Use BIBLE BITES as an easy gift idea in place of a greeting card
- Carry BIBLE BITES in pocket, purse, briefcase, backpack.
- BIBLE BITES is inexpensive, sold over the internet.
- Because it takes 21 days to develop a habit. Bible Bites firmly establishes the habit of spending five minutes each day with God’s Word.
