Object lessons are powerful tools to teach long-lasting lessons. Each object adds a 3-D visual to stimulate interest as well as help retain the message in memory.
Most objects are everyday items that you can pick up around the
house and be ready to teach a Bible object lesson, children's sermon, or family
devotional in a matter of minutes. Object talks are also a great add-on to lessons to capture attention!
