Welcome to Peace Puzzles
Greetings from Catherine Devins and Gwen Whiteman. We are Christian educators by profession, and passing on the faith to the next generation is of primary importance to us. Peace Puzzles was born from a love of sacred stories, beautiful art, and learning through play.
One day, as we were exchanging ideas for sharing sacred stories with children, we concluded that very few Bible story puzzles are available in the marketplace. We dreamed of original art that was inspiring and beautiful. We wanted a quality medium that would last longer than cardboard. We wanted stories beyond that of Noah’s Ark. We envisioned adults and children in conversation about stories of our faith in home, church, and school settings.
So, we decided to do something about it.
As we talked, our mission for Peace Puzzles became clear:
- Partner with artists to design and craft wooden Bible puzzles for preschool and early elementary children
- Art for Peace Puzzles reflects the beauty of diversity in humankind
- Each puzzle is made from and packaged with natural materials and includes a story card and prayer
- Provide ideas for sharing the story to extend the educational experience of learning through play
- Our puzzles go with church mission trips to children around the world
Peace Puzzles and making wooden puzzles about Bible stories is our ministry to you and those who want to enrich the lives of children with the stories of our faith.
Peace, Gwen and Catherine
