Children in your ministry want to know:
- that you were once a child
- that you did some “stupid” things
- that you trusted in Jesus
They want you to share your story.
I’ve found that children enjoy hearing stories from your experiences. They will ask you to tell them time and time again. It lets them know that you remember what it was like to be a child, you can relate to what they are going through in their lives.
It is through sharing your story that you make connections with others, and when you share stories about your childhood, you connect with the children in your ministry.
Take time and share your story of how you came to know Jesus and how you know He is active in your life. That’s the most important story. The others are how God prepared you, or taught you valuable lessons.
So, what is your story? Get some practice and share it in the comment section below.
