    Beautiful! I was always taught to pray as a child and accepted Christ at 8 years old.

      Wow! Kierstan, that is an encouragement to me. I never knew anything about this growing up, so the fact that a child can choose this life so early is my hope and desire for my children. Thanks for sharing this with me.

    Beautiful post! Being an example is such a key for kiddos! They need to see us loving the Lord so that they will do the same (hopefully)!

      Abbey, you’re so right, they have a choice to follow our example, or not. I find comfort in knowing that I’m giving them years of teaching that I never received. I can be the best example and answer their questions as best I can, and so that’s what I’ll do, and leave it in the hands of the Lord. Have a wonderful day Abbey!

    Thank you for this post, helping our children see God as our heavenly Father and making Him personal to them is such a vital role in their walk as followers of Christ.

      Jennifer, I agree. I think the kids need to see Him like an actual Father, close and personal. Thanks for taking time to read.

    This is lovely. Good tips for incorporating God into small moments throughout the day to build a relationship. I especially love your example of a playmate waiting at the door. I will certainly keep that one in mind, it provides a great relatable image for kids.

      Michelle, thank you so much. I know the thought of God cast seem so vast and like he’s somewhere in the sky, but I want kids to know that He’s within us, and wants to be near to us.

    Such good tips. We are definitely trying to model this for our daughter and help make time for God. She’s growing into these habits and our hope is that it will continue as she grows.

      Dawn, it’s challenging right?! I mean, lets face it, we can get a lot of resistance from kids when we ask them to stop playing for a bit to sit and pray. I’m finding it’s easier (not perfect) when there’s specific time set aside consistently as a family. Even if we’re just sitting and having individual quiet prayer time. You’re right being the example and showing them how to form good habits is how we can best help. Thank you so much for sharing!
