What a privilege we have as parents to share the precious Gospel with the very ones God has given us to shepherd. One of our greatest joys as parents comes when we can lead one of our own directly into the heart of Christ.
In our own home, we have experienced a child under conviction and heartbroken over their sin. We have led her in the sinner’s prayer and have continued to guide her in her walk of faith. We have also prayed fervently for the faith of our boys, that God would make Himself known to them. The spectrum is wide, but there is no better time than this moment to share the Gospel with your children.
I have pulled together a list of our favorite Gospel-focused, kid-friendly resources and even a few for mom and dad. Each of these resources is perfect for the kids in your home as they not only navigate their faith but the culture they live in.
Check out the list below and snag a few for your family library.
