Read the book Leo’s Gift by Susan Blackaby and Joellyn Cicciarelli. Discuss the story with the children in your classroom, faith formation group, or family. Then take some time to lead a guided reflection based on the story.
Prepare to share the reflection by reading it through ahead of time. During the session you may wish to use the script as is, or adapt it as you wish. When leading the reflection, play reflective music softly in the background to enhance the sense of prayerfulness. Be aware of your voice quality, your pacing, and the message. Adjust the pauses as you see the children respond and as the Holy Spirit makes the pace clear to you.
