These guides are designed to help you connect with your child in the phase they are in, by giving you some words to say to introduce them to faith. As the conversation progresses through the phases, always keep this end goal in mind for your kid: Trusting Jesus in a way that transforms how I love God, myself, and the rest of the world.
Faith conversations will look very different in each stage of your child’s life. No matter the age of your child, it’s critical to encourage and accept any and all questions they may ask so you can keep the dialogue going.
