Mine Rich in Gems poster

We  commissioned a painting to illuminate Bahá'u'lláh's words, "The Great Being saith: Regard man as a mine rich in gems of inestimable value. Education can alone cause it to reveal its treasure and enable mankind to benefit therefrom." This is the basis of our work here at "Mine Rich in Gems" to offer creations that can aid parents, teachers, neighbors, friends materials to support their own efforts to grow spiritually and to be a true friend to their friends and family around them.

Happy Naw Ruz to you all amazing and dedicated friends at Mine Rich in Gems.  

Thank you, thank you and thank you for this wonderful initiative.  The atmosphere at our feasts and holy days have changed so much for our dear children so much since we have started using your great material.  Some of the JYs are taking ownership of running a session for younger children at the feast and they are all enjoy it so much.  

We also just used some of these creative ideas at our children classes today where we held an hour of Naw Ruz celebration and they were absolute hit.  I myself was very proud of my Peacock fruit platter  May you all be blessed by Baha'u'llah in everything you do. Keep up the good work and just know that it is all very much appreciated.

With loving regards,

Friends in Melbourne, Australia

I just wanted to say that we used some of your Naw Ruz printable activities last night at our party and they were a huge hit! I am so appreciative of your feast packets and think it's wonderful that you put a donation button on the page and I will be donating! Many people asked for the link and I'm so glad that you put it right on the printables so that we can all access your wonderful materials. Thanks again!

Friends in Connecticut, USA

You all do an amazing job and we are very grateful for your hard work. What a gift you are giving us!!!!

Friends in California, USA

We love your pages in our community!  ~ I love them and am forwarding around. What a great idea!

Friends in Florida, USA

My son had an especially great time with the crown project... Thank you! Great packet!

Friends in New Jersey, USA

I printed them for our grandson.  We are a community of two but four nearby Baha'is join together for feast and our grandchildren are the only children. I think these pages are as much for the adults as the children! They are wonderful and I am very grateful for them! Thank you so much!

Friends in Ohio, USA

I just wanted to tell you and your family what an absolutely shockingly amazing, fantastic, awesome, inspiring job you are all doing with these feast pages!!!!!

They are so professionally done, so thoughtfully done, so spiritually done. Our community is just dazzled by them! And, as a community with a lot of children, we've been having a conversation for YEARS about the fact that we need some kind of program for the kids during the consultative portion of Feast instead of just letting them play, but it's never really happened because none of us seems to have the bandwidth to figure out what to do with all of them. So these Feast pages are seriously an answer to our prayers!

The kids dive right in and are super engaged. We are so happy and thankful for them, and for you!!! What an incredible service!

Do you want some feedback? There are a few suggestions that have come up as we've used them that I can pass along to you if you'd like.

All our love and admiration and thankfulness,

Friends in California, USA
