“Three Angels for Kids” Curriculum Now Available

“Angels descending, bring from above, echoes of mercy, whispers of love.”

In 1873 Fanny J. Crosby penned the words to “Blessed Assurance,” a beautiful hymn that was sung with gusto by my beloved grandfather holding the hymnal in his work worn hands, stained with the years of working in the garden as head of grounds at the Adventist Hospital in Sydney, Australia. A convert to Adventism in his 20s with only an eighth-grade education, my grandfather knew the Bible back to front and gave Bible studies in his home-grown style along with a box of organic vegetables to everyone from widows to the business owners to doctors to the local gas station clerk.

As I reminisced on his delivery of the three angels’ messages that he knew and understood like the seasons of the garden he cultivated, it got me thinking: Do our young people know the three angels’ messages? Are they able to articulate them and live by their principles like my undereducated but very biblically literate grandfather?

To deeply engage our students in the three angels’ messages, the NAD Office of Education is excited to offer a new, distinctly Adventist resource for our grade K-12 schools. Sandy Doran, Ph.D., has authored the Three Angels for Kids (K-8) and Three Angels for Today (9-12), a free two-week curriculum available for all our schools.

It is described as an experiential, interactive, integrated unit that is engaging and exiting for kids as they learn the message of the three angels and understand the deep spiritual principles of our faith.

Doran has included lesson plans, authored books, and provided deep critical learning experiences for students as they engage in the content of the three angels’ messages.

As curriculum and creative director at Three Angels for Kids, a unit of the Adventist supporting ministry Hart Research Center, Doran describes unexpected surprises as miracles as she developed the school curriculum. “Why did I take on this curriculum? Because God gave the assurance every step along the way that this is what He wanted me to do,” she said. “Whenever I doubted myself or needed reassurance, or felt that I didn’t know which direction to take, God would put it very clearly in my mind. . . . I am humbled.”
