20 Letter-Writing Prompts You Can Use
Posted By Rachelle Dawson On November 6, 2012 @ 3:07 am In Letter Writing | 11 Comments
My husband and I have been sponsors with Compassion for about six years. During that time, I’ve heard a lot about the importance of writing letters to our sponsored kids.
We even have a friend now who was once a child in the Compassion program, and he’s spoken about the importance of sponsor letters to him. I know writing to my sponsored child is important, and I do it pretty often, but sometimes I’m just stumped about where to start.
I decided to draft a list of specific questions that would help me explain my life and myself to a sponsored child.
Of course, if our child asks questions, I answer them. But I’ve found that children don’t always have the skill to carry on “conversations.” Giving them information about me is a good place to start.
These prompts are questions for you to answer about yourself. Expand on the answers, as space permits, in a letter to your sponsored child. Enjoy!
