Instill Faith in Children: Engage all five senses

Asking children what they see, what they smell, what they hear in the world helps them experience God’s creation in a variety of ways, says Aimee Cox, director of children's ministry at Christ United Methodist Church, Franklin, Tennessee.

Employing this tip isn’t just for nature walks or outside settings, Cox clarifies, suggesting the same questions can be asked following all activities, including church.

“Always engage kids after worship by asking, ‘What did you see today? What smells did you smell?” “Help them walk through the experience of being at church,” she says.
