How to Use Plants Grown Up and Polished Cornerstones (video)

We decided to spice things up and deliver today’s post in video form! People often ask us, “Where do I start?” after they buy Plants Grown Up or Polished Cornerstones. If  you already have one of these books on your shelf, we hope this will help you get the most out of it!

In this video, we show how to get started using Plants Grown Up and Polished Cornerstones, including how to choose the best character training and Bible study projects for your children, and how to schedule a month of projects and memory verses for your son or daughter.

If you can’t see the video above, try watching it on YouTube here.

Feel free to ask questions in the comments, or let us know other ways you’ve used these books!

  1. This was awesome! There’s so much flexibility, and it was really useful to see how to use this with the different tools available in this book. Thanks!

  2. This was so helpful!!! It solidified in my mind that I would like to begin using this with my children (with Dad’s blessing :D). I would love to see more how to for your other books. Sometimes when I have received your other materials there has been SO much good information I feel overwhelmed and not sure where to start. Also, sometimes I’m not sure about a product and this would clarify that as well. Thank you for all you do! I love your products and I love the info on this blog! God Bless You!

  3. Thank you so much for this post. I have had both of these books for years now and have never used them. Just the other day, I thought about pulling them out and giving it a shot, and then there was the overwhelming thought of having to try and figure it all out. You made it all seem so simple, flexible and doable. I am going to pull them out now!!!
    Many blessings,

  4. Wonderful! We haven’t used those books yet, but this video was terrific! Thanks for walking us through one chapter and giving us tools for planning – VERY helpful.

    My children just love coloring the Proverbs from Hidden Treasures, and we’re going to try the concentration game from there next.

    Thank you for all your help and encouragement, not only through your wonderful books, but also with this blog – I need the ongoing inspiration week-to-week.

  5. We appreciate all the encouragement we get from all of you, too! Thanks for commenting! Glad this was helpful. Not too fond of getting in front of a video camera. 🙂

  6. That was very helpful. I’ve had this resource since the boys were little, thinking they’d use it when they got older. Well. at 11 and 14 . . . . I will be intentional with this resource. I’ve pulled the book off of the shelf. We have not been doing AWANA this year in our small town, so we need to get back on track with bible memory. Thanks for this video!

  7. Of course you can probably always use more than one if you wanted, but generally is it possible to use one book for more than one child ?

  8. Yes, Leslie, you can use one book for multiple children. It comes with a CD of all the worksheets in PDF form so you can print copies as needed.
