Have you ever asked your preteens to spend quiet time with Scripture, only to find out that they don't really know how? One issue might be that they don't know the types of questions they should be asking themselves as they read scripture. Asking better questions while interfacing with God's Word is something we can model in our ministries.
On today's podcast Mark Friestad, who has led preteen ministries for over a decade, discusses Bloom's Taxonomy for questions and explains the necessity of our questions "growing up" with our kids.
If we are asking preteens the same types of questions that we asked them when they were 6 years old, we are failing to consider the incredible growth that has taken place in their mental capacities since then.
Join Mark and 14 other dynamic speakers at the Preteen Leaders Online Conference on April 3rd and 4th.
