One common struggle parents express is that they feel inadequate to have spiritual conversations with their children. Here are some direct quotes from parents:
- I don't know how to lead spiritually.
- I want to grow, but don't know what to do.
- I have very little knowledge of the Bible, so how can I talk to my child about it?
- My child already knows more than I do.
- I don't know how to maintain a healthy relationship with God, so how can I talk about it?
If you have had these thoughts, you are not alone! So we have a gift for you. It’s an ebook that takes the biggest LOVE STORY of all time and summarizes it with nine pictures. You can read this for yourself, read to your kids from an e-reader as you tuck them in bed, or gather together as a family and read aloud.
