Using Storytelling Techniques

Good storytelling techniques can go a long way in enhancing a Bible lesson, especially a narrative type lesson.

Use a wide range of voice inflection. Raise your voice when a person in the lesson is angry, lower it when they are sad. Slow down when the person is being thoughtful or deliberate, speed up when when they are excited. Put yourself in that person's shoes and do a little acting.

These techniques can also be used when there is no dialog.

This will make your lesson more exciting and memorable (not to mention fun for the children and for you!)
