For the past nine months Tyler and I have been serving as Sunday school teachers. We have had a fun time studying the Old Testament together. As a kid I would LOVE learning with FLANNEL BOARD lessons, and ever since we started teaching I have wanted to use a flannel board for one of our lessons! For our lesson this week we were learning about the life and trials of Jonah, and what better way to depict the story of Jonah then on a flannel board!! Because I procrastinated planning our lesson until Saturday night, I was unable to find a flannel board to use, so I improvised! With construction paper I was able to create the story of Jonah! It took me a couple of hours, but it was totally worth it when I heard the giggles from our class when the saw all the pictures!

Here is my Jonah pictures! The word bubbles of the sailors say, "Get off the boat SINNER." and the whale says, "YUMMY!" and Jonah in the whale is saying, "Help Me!".
Tyler's favorite was the repentant people of Nineveh who are clothed in sackcloth and are covered in ash. I used my eyeliner to make the ash, but now I have to go get new eyeliner!


  1. That is really fun, looks like a great family night lesson too. We miss you guys, hope you can come this way for a visit soon. Love you!

  2. Now I know why you should be teaching elementary school - you are a natural. Keep up the fun lessons! Too many days singing Jonah in Jeopardy!

  3. What a cute Blog!! I love your very creative and fun pictures of Jonah and the comments in your pictures. You are the BEST teacher ever and your students are very lucky to have you and Tyler--you guys make quite a team!
