Teaching with Visuals

“Mommie, I’m going to play dress up !”


“Ok Hanna.” Beth answered automatically as she took the clothes out of the washer then went into the kitchen to finish dishes.

Several moments had passed and there were no sounds coming from the room where her two girls were playing so she went to check on them.

Hanna was beautifully dressed in a ruffled half slip, pulled up under her arms like a strapless gown. A scarf draped over her shoulders and her "netting" ,Beth had made a vailed hat, over her face. Hanna clopped around in a pair Beth’s high heel shoes babbling softly, “Honey, you better get dressed, we are going to be late!”.

Her younger sister, Paula, was sitting on the chair with her arms folded nodding yes, but very apathetic.

Hanna repeated the statement at least three times, which led Beth to think this had been going on for some time. Finally out of frustration Hanna lost it. She stomped her foot and turned her back on Paula. “Fine, you can not be the daddy any more and then I won’t play with you any more!”

Beth stepped inside and questioned the girls only to find out that Hanna was angry because Paula had been sitting there that whole time and wouldn’t budge. She would just tell her sister yes, by shaking her head, and then do nothing..

Paula’s denial of that accusation additment, she assured her mother she was playing with Hanna, “‘cause daddy never wants to go to weddings, and he likes to watch ball games and so you don’t talk, or get up.”

Doing all she could to not burst into laughter, Beth settling the disagreement by derversion and went back to her work.As she thought about the girls role playing, she was made painfully aware of the role model she and Bill sat for them. It placed a whole new light on, "training up a child in the way he should go.”

She dried her hands and began to make a list of attributes she wanted to offer them by setting an example. Realising that by following her behaviour, they were learning much more than by her “telling” them how to behave. She then determined, with Gods help, she would purpose to exemplify at least one new positive trait each week in her own life.

God makes no mistakes! I believe we are encouraged to grow in Christ and that children are a tool He uses in our life to inspire that. Every parent is a role model and their children will memmic. Beth decided she best be careful, she may try to correct an action she had taught them unaware.
If you allow the Holy Spirit to teach you to develop a loving sweet spirit, you can be assured that your child will notice.
They will also want to know the same Lord and saviour you know. The one that is projected by your daily behaviour.


Perhaps in teaching them, our teaching tools may include being a live visual .


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Good article! One suggestion if you put a little space between paragraphs it makes for easier reading.
