At what age can children start understanding the Scriptures? Jennifer Lyell assures listeners that children as young as three years old can understand simple concepts of the Bible. Jennifer tells how one little boy in her Sunday school class touched her heart and convicted her of the importance of teaching God’s truth to the youngest among us.
Jennifer Lyell has taught hundreds of children the Bible over the course of many years and finds her joy in those end-of-the-year Sunday School classes when the children teach it back to her.
Granted, teaching kiddos might be her passion, but it’s not her day job. For that she serves as Director of Book Publishing and Merchandising at LifeWay Christian Resources. The hundreds of
titles that the books business team has acquired, developed or managed under Jennifer’s leadership include more than a dozen New York Times bestsellers, as well as multiple Christianity
Today Book of the Year winners. Jennifer is an often off-the-path hiker who is happiest when adventuring (just like a child!).
