It’s working! It’s really working!

No, it’s not a science fair project. It is something even more important.

Customizing Bible lessons for the needs of my students is increasing interest, participation, and connection. It feels rewarding to know we are helping kids cope with their unique challenges as preteens.

In addition to learning how Moses obeyed, we have discussed David’s example of self-control when he could have killed cruel King Saul.

Daniel’s courage helped kids understand they can stand up for their beliefs in any situation.

The story of Jesus, at twelve years old, sparked discussion about honoring and respecting parents even as preteens seek increasing independence.

This week we’ll study how to use our talents and skills to help others and serve in God’s Kingdom.

Do you have any ideas to share? Did you have positive experiences while helping others during your preteen years? Please comment!
