Day 18 – reading in public


Once a month at church the children have their own praise service, rather than their usual Kingdom Kids teaching groups. Today they looked at the story of the Prodigal Son.
On their return to the main church service, they tell us what they have been doing. Today I was so proud when Imogen eagerly volunteered to read out the key verse. Yes, she needed help on some of the words, but this is a girls who has not been ‘taught’ to read. She has just enjoyed books and we’ve always read together.
We have trusted that, in her own time, she will learn things that are important to her. And today was a big reward for that trust.
