Faith Conversation Guide – Elementary
In the elementary school years, kids become equipped with the skills they need to discover more about faith, and they have an active imagination that leads them to ask questions about their world and what they experience. As they learn new stories from the Bible, you’ll be amazed at the questions they start to consider. The best thing to remember is to treat each question with care. How you respond to your kids each time they have questions about faith will determine if they continue to talk to you about their faith.
Faith Conversation Guide – Preschool
How we talk about faith at each phase of a person’s life matters in how they’ll think about faith in the phases to
come. Preschoolers use their five senses to experience the world around them. In this phase, you can help them develop
authentic faith by inciting wonder. You will give them the foundations for their faith in the way you respond with concrete
examples and by letting them explore God’s creation. As they grow and mature into adolescents you’ll be able to unpack
abstract concepts more deeply.
