Judy Drebes Kampia has been sharing Bible stories with children since age thirteen as a VBS aide in Englewood, Colorado. She graduated from Concordia University, River Forest, Illinois and did graduate work in Religious Education. In 1970, she married Rev. Rudy Kampia. They now reside in Maryland.

Judy has taught in rural, suburban and inner city Christian schools in eight states. She has shared Bible messages with children ages three to fourteen at camps, retreats, Sunday School, VBS, week-day school, and at home with her children and grandchildren. Judy has also written Christian Day School, Sunday school and VBS Materials, published by Concordia and by Augsburg Publishing Houses.

Judy began God’s Great Book after seeing the need for a complete and flexible Bible Story and activity book that could be used with multi-age groups of various sizes. Fellow parents and educators agreed, and have used the unpublished version for home, school, VBS and individual reading.
