Welcome to Engaging Kids.
The reason you've picked up this book is because your heart cries out in a desire to have the spiritual lights come on in kids. You want them to connect to God and His Word. You want to engage them at the highest level in a multitude of ways, so they will make the most important decision of their life--to begin a lifelong experience with The God of the Universe.
Do you want to know how to get and keep kids' attention? Would you like to better understand how they think? Are you interested in figuring out how to better relate to kids? Do you passionately want to encourage them to take personal steps toward God? Those are just a few of the reasons Engaging Kids was written.
If you're like me, you want more than an a-ha moment. You want an a-ha lifetime for your kids! That means that you need to learn how to use the tools that will engage them in worship, in healthy godly relationships, in the stories God has chosen to be in His Word, and in holy habits like scripture memorization, journaling, serving, daily devotions, and prayer. You want a connection to be made and the lights to come on!
