I used this as an interactive lesson during a children's Sunday service. After slide 6 I asked them for as many children in the Bible as they could think of, and listed them on a flip chart. We went through the 12 on slide 7, letting them choose the order. They are set as hyperlinks in the original file, but don't work that way in SlideShare. Clicking on the character's title brought it back to the original list so they could pick another story. Stories were very abbreviated, intentionally, so they could look at the role model lesson the child is for them. The emphasis is for them to be role models (Be an example!) of their faith, as well as to trust God to help them.
