Description: The Life Lessons Study on Genesis  invites us to journey through the book of Genesis as children exploring the history of our family, hearing about the joys and trials our ancestors faced and their decisions while facing them. We have an opportunity to better understand their lives and use some of their hard earned lessons in our own.  This study reminds us that God's promises are ever present even in difficult times.  Each lesson has a Scripture passage from Genesis plus an inspirational reading, as well as thought-provoking questions and space for journaling and prayer.
