Why all the changes?

"The education and training of children is among the most meritorious acts of humankind and draweth down the grace and favour of the All-Merciful, for education is the indispensable foundation of all human excellence and alloweth man to work his way to the heights of abiding glory."

~ 'Abdu'l-Bahá 

 Alláh-u-Abhá! Thank you for your questions and feedback. ♥️  

For about 23 Bahá'í months we offered the pages for free and with a more direct link. 

Why are we charging now?

In order to help cover some of the costs and to be able to afford to continue to develop, create, refine and share these and other materials we are now charging a small fee of $2.95 per issue, per family, with up to 2 downloads.

How can some of us afford the Workbooks? 

We hope the friends can afford this charge. If someone is having a hard time affording the workbooks, we hope they can turn in consultation with their local assemblies or cluster agencies to see if it makes sense for the community.

  • individuals could talk with their local assemblies or national assemblies about the spiritual education of children and finding resources that support their goals. 
  • children's class coordinators could consider ordering a set of downloads for the interested families in their area.
  • summer school and winter school committees may consider ordering a set for the interested families in their area
  • local and national assemblies could consider ordering a set for each family who is interested in the materials. 

If there are any problems with being able to afford the materials we want to know and help the friends serving children in this way. Please email us at minerichingems.com@gmail.com.

Why this website platform?

A little background - we started out as a new family effort - in April 2017 - planning to sell Auntie Lili's children's books. We signed up for 3 years with our current website platform and got to work preparing several books for publication, editing, illustration, layout, publishing and marketing processes. This was taking a lot longer than we expected, so in December 2017, Auntie Lili began to make the Feast Pages for Kids. Our aim is to be of service to the friends in their most meritorious acts of the spiritual education of children.

We need to come back every 19 Days? 

Yes, please! It takes us all month to create the workbooks, illustrate them, edit and refine and lay them out and make them available to others. So, each month, about 10 days before each 19 Day Feast, we make a mighty effort to have a new workbook available to the friends.  To support your mighty efforts with the children and junior youth in your communities and clusters.

To make things easier to download each month, please consider setting up an account on our site. Then, each month, you just enter your email and password and your account information will be there, ready to use for a quick download of the digital materials. And please be sure to sign up for our newsletter to make sure you get the email about a week before each 19 Day Feast.

Where are the first 20 issues?

We are refreshing the first year's of workbooks and will release them as they are ready. Please visit Volume 1: Introduction to the Bahá'í Months and Holy DaysWhen they are all refreshed we plan to offer them as a bundled set of 20 issues, or half sets of 10 issues. 

What's coming up for the new year? 

Starting with the new year 176 BE we will have a new theme for the Feast Pages for Kids based on the heroines and heroes during the time of His Holiness, The Báb, called Volume 2: Ventures of the Lionhearts. In honor of the Bicentenary of the Birth of The Báb. We have in production 20 issues that are released month by month, as we create them, starting at Naw-Rúz with the month of Bahá. 

 

What about offering in other languages?

We are not yet able to provide translations but we want to support other communities who may wish to organize to create a new set of Feast Pages for Kids with a different approach and/or in different languages. Friends have offered to translate the materials into Portuguese, Romanian and French for communities who use those languages. If you are interested in that please click here>> to see our approach if that can help you. 

I have other questions

If you have any questions please feel free to contact us anytime!

With loving greetings and sincere gratitude for this opportunity to serve.

  • I agree at least there are options to pay upfront as part of the commitment to fully utilizing the best of your service and more sure is the benefit to our Baha’i children around the globe. ( Shah LSA, Ambenob Cluster – Madang, PNG )
