The Vision for Sprout Box is equipping families to go beyond hearing and memorizing Bible stories and begin to see how the context of the scripture can help us to better know God, understand His words and see how He works in our lives. We feel like the best place for this spiritual formation in each of us is at home with our families as spelled out in Deuteronomy 6.
4 Listen, people of Israel! The Lord is our God. He is the only Lord. 5 Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul and strength. 6 Always remember these commands I give you today. 7 Teach them to your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and walk along the road. Talk about them when you lie down and when you get up. 8 Write them down and tie them to your hands as a sign. Tie them on your forehead to remind you. 9 Write them on your doors and gates.Deuteronomy 6:4-9 ICB
SproutBox was Created by CEO & Founder David Kim, a Chicago accountant dad who felt the calling of God to be closer to Him and to become a spiritual example and leader for his children. After trying numerous resources, David began a journey to create a tool that would make a difference with his family. Out of that passionate work, the original version of SproutBox was developed. Since then with the help of feedback from a large group of test users, SproutBox has evolved into the resource available today. Through this process David has grown in his faith and is more confident than ever before in leading his kids in learning about the most important relationship they will ever have.
The SproutBox Team is led by founder David Kim and includes:
Mike Nawrocki – American director, producer, writer, voice actor, animator, musician, puppeteer, and businessman best known as the co-creator of the long-running, best-selling Christian video series, VeggieTales where he voices Larry the Cucumber.
