Passing on the Faith

When Jane and I were expecting our first child, we began looking at how we’d like to pass the faith on to our children. We started by considering things that helped us as we grew up.

One thing I remember is my dad reading from a children’s bible or bible story every night after supper. As a child, I thought it was terrible. My friends got to go out and play a whole 5 minutes before I did! Oh, the injustice. But by the time I was a teenager, I had a pretty decent knowledge of the major stories throughout the bible. It was a great foundation for my relationship with my loving God.

Praying With Young Children

I remember reading from a children’s bible every night after supper growing up. By the time I was a teenager, I had a pretty decent understanding of the major stories in the bible (whether I wanted to or not). It gave me a great foundation for my faith life.

Jane and I have tried several times to do the same thing with our children. But we failed spectacularly (usually around day number 2 or 3).
