1. Let it be their journey, their discovery, and their insights that lead them to their own enthusiasm. Forget whether you are a good parent, grandparent, or friend by how they react. Just keep reading and tell the bible stories because you enjoy them and you enjoy spending time with your kids.
2. Let them have choices in the process. For example, let them pick out the book of the bible they want to read, or maybe the story or even the translation that they might want to use. Helping them see that they have some choice in the process and there is a lot of freedom in the learning. That makes it more fun.
3. Be humble in the process. Remember none of us have arrived in totally understanding God’s word and the mysterious way He works. Be open to your kids as your teachers. Listen to their observations without judgement. Be open to Holy Spirit as their teachers. He is the one who will guide us all in the truth.
