Linda VanVoorst :: How do I organically use a Kid Bio to teach kids to be empathetic?

  • “Use the child’s five senses to help them experience the story,” says Linda VanVoorst, Director of Justice Kids and Director of Children’s Ministry at Antioch Church in Bend, OR. Children understand things they can see, touch, or smell; and this is the best way to engage them in a story of a different country. Create a game, cook a meal together; make the story real for them. When children understand a story is real, they will more easily develop empathy for the people in the story. Ask yourself, “How can I make this story jump off the page?”
