6 Ways to Show a Kid why They Matter to God

6 Ways to Show a Kid why They Matter to God

You can’t make a kid love God, have faith or care about what really matters. But there are some things you can do.

That’s why we wrote Playing for Keeps. We wanted to talk to parents and leaders (and anyone else who influences the lives of kids and teenagers) about six things you can give a kid over time that will make a significant impact. These six things can help give a kid the kind of history that will show them why they matter to God.

As part of the 2013 Playing for Keeps Orange Tour, accompanying videos were created to illustrate the important things that kids need over time.

Share these videos with your team, and discuss this question together: What kind of history are you making with the kids and teenagers who are closest to you?

(Please note: These videos originally aired as live webcasts and contain information about contests and giveaways that are no longer available.)

  1. I would like to share these one at a time on my childrens min facebook page. Where can I find the ones to download individually?

    • Hi Tamara! They are all located on our Vimeo page: Vimeo.com/whatisorange. Because the videos are scattered among other videos on our Vimeo page, I would suggest that you bookmark this blog post, then click each video, then click the paper airplane icon on the right of the video screen to grab the video link or the embed code. Hope that helps! ~Jennifer
