From the Back Cover

You do everything possible to safeguard your child’s health and well-being.

So why would you take chances with the most important decision your child will ever make?

Studies show that most people who accept Jesus as their Savior do so as children. Helping your child come to know and follow Christ is a top priority, but it isn’t always easy. How to Lead Your Child to Christ will teach you how to communicate biblical truth so that your child will be ready to accept God’s invitation to follow Him.

This book is packed with hands-on materials you can use with your children:

  • A CD of five classic songs performed by children teaches key truths of the Christian faith in a fun way your child will remember
  • Stories you can read aloud to your children will help them better understand what it means for Christ to be their Savior and Friend
  • Practical ideas in every chapter show how to make Christ the center of your home and help your children grow in their faith

Tap into these resources, and you’ll discover the joy and incredible privilege that comes from passing on your faith to your kids!

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
From the first page to the last, the Wolgemuths present the gospel in a hands on, easy to replicate way. There is nothing intimidating about this book. You can tell their experiance is old fashioned, but the application of their principles is ageless!
A few things you'll find:

-story telling (which kids and adults love)
-music (while taking a bath you can sing "what can wash away my sins...nothing but the blood of Jesus"; songs and lyrics are included)
-examples for mom/dad to demonstrate Christ daily to their kids and include Christ in the family routine (while in the car, choose a road to pray on).
