Missionary biographies questions

Unread post by RachelT » Mon Oct 10, 2016 7:19 am

Have any of you found discussion questions to talk about with the Missionary biographies in ECC? My 8th grade daughter is starting to read Bruchko this week and I haven't read it, yet. Thanks!

I read Bruchko in college and when I was learning about mfw and saw that kids read that in middle school, I was excited! Missionary stories inspire me to live more for the Kingdom of God. I suggest you read it with your daughter. It will bless you both and be a great shared experience. You won't regret taking the time to do that!

I just asked my daughter open ended questions like:

1) What was most inspiring?
2) Was there anything that caused you concern?
3) How did this book affect your faith?
4) How did this book help you see the need for God's word for other people?

and we discussed. I had read several of them before, so I knew what she was reading. I tried to come up with questions that could be used with any of the books.

Thank you for the replies! I have ended up being able to read the book fairly quickly and I'm really enjoying it! It was good to have some other input for ideas of how to discuss a book when I don't have time to actually read it myself, too.
