You may have seen my review of The Kingdom Code a few weeks ago. We are really loving the program and I am very excited to announce that I will be partnering with them to share more about our Journey Through The Code. I will be posting a Journal entry approximately once a week (skipping vacations/holidays) sharing what we have learned and covered in each lesson.
When we sat down to do lesson one, we first got everything set up and ready to use. The kit came with instructions and we used three ring binders that we already had on hand to get Matthew’s notebooks set up with the proper forms and documents behind each tab. Then we sat down and read through the lesson together.

Lesson one discussed the full armor of God, financial responsibility, and different types of service jobs. Younger students also had an opportunity to practice counting money. While I skipped this part with my son because he is already very proficient, it is great practice in an important life skill for those that are still learning about money.
Key to the Lesson ” In God’s armor, I will be financially responsible and build treasure.”
We also made a chart of different businesses and categorized them as businesses that sell goods or those which provide a service. This program is primarily designed to help students start and run a service-based business so it is important that they have a good understanding of the difference before they start their business in the next lessons. It is easiest to use this program with a service-based business, but I do think you can adapt it for a goods-based business if your child has a strong preference for a particular business.
In addition to the activities that we chose to complete, they also offered lesson reinforcement through the use of a song, building activity, or money games. I really appreciated that they included a variety of bonus activities to help meet varying interests and learning styles.
Stay tuned next week for lesson two of The Kingdom Code and don’t forget that you can get 10% of this program using Coupon Code: 10TKC08! If you have any questions about our journey let me know in the comments and I will be sure to try and address them in our next installment.
