12 Conversations to lead your child to profess faith in Christ
by John C. Kwasny, Ph.D
(Published in cooperation with One Story Ministries, a non-profit publishing ministry
of Pear Orchard Presbyterian Church (PCA) located in Ridgeland, Mississippi.)
“ You shall teach them [God’s commands] diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.” — Deuteronomy 6:7
God’s Word teaches us that the home is to be the primary location of the discipleship of children. Parents are charged to teach the Scripture to the next generation and calling upon their children to love God and embrace Jesus Christ as their Savior and Lord. Yet, the reality is that many parents find it a challenge to have meaningful substantive conversations about the gospel and what it means to follow Jesus.
Established in the Faith will help guide your conversations systematically so that you can help your child build a foundational knowledge of God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, and the Church. It also includes prompts to help you share your own faith story. Each of the 12 Conversations are grounded in God’s Word and will encourage your child to think deeply about what it means to be a follower of Christ.
