Teaching the Divisions of the Bible: Minor Prophets

Major league, minor league. One is better than the other, but that’s not the case with the Major and Minor Prophets. Just because we call them the Minor Prophets doesn’t mean these prophets or their messages are any less important than the Major Prophets, which we talked about last time. It simply means their Bible books are shorter. In addition to being shorter, these books can also be confusing. Even so, you can have confidence when teaching them to the children in your Sunday school class!

Getting Kids to Talk

Relationships are everything in kids’ ministry. Yet, if you were to walk into a Sunday school classroom, you most likely would see one teacher taking the lead, while all the others stand or sit in the background watching. Kids need you to engage them throughout the entire class session.

The Strong-Willed Child

The Strong-Willed Child

My son is three years old. He is hilarious, busy, and has energy to fuel at least three other kids (or at least it seems that way)! He already has a very strong personality. He loves people, but he also loves the idea of being in charge.

Teaching with Tech

Does the phrase, “Teaching with technology in Sunday school” make you say “YES!” or “Uh oh!”? I’ll admit, I’m a little of both. My personal collection of smart devices is very small and my church doesn’t have a ton of tech stuff in our classrooms either.

Counseling Children for Salvation

Leading a child to Jesus can be both exciting — and frightening. What if you say the wrong thing? What if she asks a question that you don’t know the answer to? How do you know if the child is sincere?

Emojis As a Teaching Tool? Yes!

Emojis As a Teaching Tool? Yes!

Kid’s ministry has changed so much over the last ten years! For example, I did not own a cell phone until I was 19. Now kids get them at younger and younger ages and because of this texting and social media are becoming more and more relevant to even young children.

Reset! Regaining and Keeping Attention in Class

Reset! Regaining and Keeping Attention in Class

I’m on the children’s church teaching team at my church. I teach the younger group, which range from 3-6 years old. They are hilarious, sweet, and sometimes just plain squirrely! If something hits them funny it can be so easy for them to get distracted and before I know it they aren’t paying attention anymore!

Add Excitement with One Simple Technique

Add Excitement with One Simple Technique

“1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10! Ready or not, here I come!” Without fail, whenever I just start playing “hide and seek” in class without giving any warning, I have got the kids’ attention! What am I going to do next? Could it be fun?

Teaching Little Kids

“Why are you eating toilet paper?!” It seemed like a reasonable question, but my toddler didn’t bother to answer as she crammed another piece of (clean) toilet paper into her mouth.
