As with all the previous issues, it is by the grace and help of God that this paper comes to you. We pray that it would be a blessing, and help you live more fully for your King.
For any of you who are new to the paper, Treasures of the Kingdom is designed for boys and girls ages five to ten. If you have questions or want to share a testimony, please write. If you are interested in something for older ages, we also have available a quarterly magazine, Foundation Truth.
We are a Bible-believing family that belongs to the church God built, as described in the New Testament. Our family includes Rick and Krista Erickson and their five children: Laura (20), Skye (18), Joel (18), Kara (15), and Amanda (7). We live on a small acreage and are home educated. The publishing of Treasures of the Kingdom is mainly done by Laura and Joel, with help from others, including contributions from our friends, the Spinks family, and guidance by our parents.
