Episode 97: Top 3 Spiritual Questions Kids Ask: #3 – “What happens after I die?”

Welcome to the third and final week of our June series covering the top 3 Spiritual Questions Kids Ask! 

So far we’ve answered the questions “Where do I come from?” and “What’s my purpose?” Today Kori & Meredith will discuss “What happens after I die?” This question – along with everything we need for life and godly living – is answered in Scripture! We want you to be confident that you’re giving kids information that is true, helpful, and age appropriate!

KORI PENNPACKER has served with Bible2School since 2011. Kori oversees the mission of Bible2School and Engagement by speaking to businesses, churches, and community leaders on the importance of spiritual training for elementary age children in our communities, especially those who are not able to attend church. She loves inviting people into the Bible2School Team as valued Members, Volunteers, and Donors.

Kori lives in Lititz with her husband, Blaine, and has three sons. She enjoys spending time with her family, playing tennis, and volunteering with her husband to mentor engaged couples at her church.

MEREDITH STEIDLER is a wife and mom to 3 kids ages 14, 12 and 10. She loves coffee and morning quiet time with Jesus. In addition to family time, waterfalls, gardening, running, biking, reading and spiritual conversations are some of her greatest joys. 

Meredith has served as the Podcast Manager for Bible2School since June of 2022. She also enjoys volunteering as a small group leader with her local Bible2School and hosting dinners with her food enthusiast husband.
