I know three teens who have been successful in uniting people from different age groups representing many different religions and denominations in collegiality for service. Six-year-old Sam Barlow and his dad, Dave, liked to play a little game in which they expressed their love for each other. Sam would say, “I love you.” Dave responded,…

Share Personal Experiences As you try to teach and share religious principles with others, remember that true stories from your own life often make it easier for others earners to relate to you and understand what you are teaching. Sometimes we think our personal experiences will not be of interest to other people. This is not the case….

Teaching religious principles to young people can be difficult, but the starting place has always got to be seeking to understand your learners. Whether young people, children, or peers, effective teachers strive to know and empathize with the concerns of those they teach. Has the person you are teaching lost a loved one? It would…

It’s phenomenal to see how freely children share their hearts. I experienced this quite literally with a student in my sixth-grade classroom. James had been born with a heart problem. He had had his first open heart surgery when he was only in first grade, and during this sixth grade year he had to be…

Has it been a while since you have been as close as you would like to be? Perhaps there have been too many hurts, mistakes, and regrets along the way. Maybe it’s time for us to refill our lives with faith like that of our children. Some intermediate grade students were participating in a special…

Jesus said, “Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven” (Matthew 18:3). One of the attributes children have is the ability to be happy. Children are naturally happy. I have seen children on almost every continent—many of whom have little…
