Come along for an adventure with baby Chris as he grows in his mom’s womb. Through this interactive flashcard activity, Sunday school teachers, parents, and children learn how a baby in their mother’s womb is just like them!
These cards provide an opportunity for children to learn about Chris in the “Teaching Moment Section,” on the back of each card, while adults and more mature audiences benefit from a detailed analysis and description in the “Digging Deeper,” section on the back of each card.

We are one humanity, made distinct by God for His glory and purpose. Acknowledging how each person is uniquely created by God is so important in understanding why life is sacred and how destroying it through abortion is wrong.
