Storytelling tips - Abram's call: ‘Writing in Abram’s diary’

A new way of helping children in your Sunday school group become familiair with Bible stories

One of the ways to help children make the story become more familiar to them, is to let them write the story as an entry in a diary. We will explain below…


Children from 9-12 years of age.


Bible verses:

“The Lord had said to Abram, “Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you. I will make you into a great nation,  and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.”

So Abram went, as the Lord had told him; and Lot went with him. Abram was seventy-five years old when he set out from Harran. He took his wife Sarai, his nephew Lot, all the possessions they had accumulated and the people they had acquired in Harran, and they set out for the land of Canaan, and they arrived there.

Abram travelled through the land as far as the site of the great tree of Moreh at Shechem. At that time the Canaanites were in the land. The Lord appeared to Abram and said, “To your offspring I will give this land.” So he built an altar there to the Lord, who had appeared to him.“

Genesis 12: 1 - 7
