The Finding Story

a 4 week curriculum based on Finding Nemo

Finding Dory is the blockbuster family movie sequel to the great Finding Nemo from Disney. We like to make use of pop culture and relevant media when teaching kids, so a huge movie release is a great time to do a series based on that popular movie.

“The Finding Story” is just that. A 4 week curriculum based on the movie Finding Nemo.

There are lots of spiritual lessons that are wrapped up in Finding Nemo. The overall story about Nemo being lost and his dad, Marlin, travelling the ocean to search and find Nemo is a mirror image of Jesus stepping out of heaven to come to earth to search for and find us. (See a family devotion on that subject here)


Again, you can try out a complete preview lesson for FREE, so you lose nothing. I finding god in finding nemohave a feeling once you see the Finding Faith lesson, you will want to have the other lessons in the series.

When we did the lesson, our kids love it, and were highly engaged—both because of the quality of the material, and also because it was based on a movie they were all familiar with.



See what others had to say about the lesson:


The Finding Faith lesson we did in our children’s church was PHENOMENAL!!! It kept the kids engaged the whole time. And they loved the Nemo/Dory theme and the videos that went along with it from Finding Nemo. I would highly recommend it and look forward to seeing the other lessons that come out too.

About the Family Devotions

It creates an atmosphere of open dialogue between the family and helps with communication. The interactions with the parents allows the kids to identify with not just Bible characters but their parents in a new way.

    Dear Dr., it is an honor to be able to write from this small island called Cuba, where it is difficult to reach your literature at this time due to situations that the Lord Jesus does not ignore. I am the father of 2 preteens and as the main person in charge of their formation and spiritual help, unfortunately I can only see the titles of their publications on topics so demanded today, I ask them if they will help me with their literature because for my family it is of great need.
    I am sorry that I could not finish because I have limitations on the Internet and by this means no, I beg you to help us because, as St. Paul says, the truth cannot be imprisoned.
    God bless you much.

    Sincerely, Orlando Lores Sanchez
