Going Off Script

With my preteens (4th and 5th grade kids), I went off script. I realized these kids had grown up in church with knowing all the words but not usually getting the meaning behind them. So dig deep and find out if they really get it or just the lingo. So I took the tiny word “joy” and did a search and we explored that word in the old teatament, in worship of Psalms, in wisdom of Proverbs, in the Holy Spirit and the new testament. And the kids had fun and learned so much! And now when people throw out the “joy” word, they gets its true meaning and that is priceless. To see actual joy in preteens is something very precious!😄 Don’t be afraid to go off script with preteens. They love it.❤
