A few Discipleship Tools for Kids
Loving the Jesus Storybook Bible by Sally Lloyd-Jones. Really makes the stories in the Bible come to life in a way that spurs imagination and conversation. This morning we read the story of the hidden treasure from Matthew 13. The way the author described the treasure led our three year old to want more – “Was it heavy! Let me see it!” Always hard to stop with just one story.
We’ve kept a little book called My 1st Book of Questions and Answers by Carine MacKenzie around our dinner table for the past six months or so. Set up as a Catechism for young kids. Great for initiating further conversation about faith.
This summer I’m going to start a discipleship track with Jack, our seven year old. We’re going to use the Wheel Illustration by the Navigators. He’s agreed to do it only if his wheel could be the Monster Truck version, which could also have some spiritual implications I’m sure.
Also looking forward to having him with me on several Faith In Action projects through our church this summer. Debriefing the plight of other peoples lives / why is there pain and evil in the world, has been a great faith builder for he and I.
Please share other ideas for discipling/connecting faith with family.
