Prepare to Enjoy Your Kids Forever
All Christian parents want to train their children to be “good kids.” But that honorable goal is starkly shallow compared to the eternal purposes God has in mind for your parenting.
The purpose of training is to prepare the soil of our child's heart so they will seek God for themselves and be convicted of their own sinfulness and their need to repent. Compelling a child to “pray a sinner's prayer” will not save them. It will only make false converts if the heart is not prepared for God's presence.
The Bible mentions the heart 826 times. “Heart” refers to the core of a person's being. From the heart proceed our good and bad thoughts, emotions and behavior. What we teach our children can determine whether that soil is prepared to produce good or evil.
Nothing is more important than seeding deep within the heart and mind of a child core Christian convictions like Jesus is God; The reasons we know Jesus Christ rose from the dead, why we should be convinced the Bible is a true and accurate revelation from beginning to end and the absolute truth that Jesus is the only way to God. Unless our children know these and other key doctrines revealed in the Bible, they will not be thoroughly equipped for every good work.
Although the word “doctrine” sometimes intimidates people, it is nothing more than a description of the will of God and the Gospel. If we have not trained the hearts and minds of our children to love sound teachings then we should not be surprised when three-fourths of them eventually walk away from the faith in college.
You don't have time to waste. Read and re-read this book to your child, and the training you provide will last for an eternity.
The number one book that i recommend to parents who
want to raise Godly children is the Bible. however, i am
always on the lookout for resources to help me be a more effective
and successful Christian parent to my three children.
it is imperative that any book i read is deeply grounded in the
Word of God, and it is because of this that i encourage you to
read and re-read with your young ones Christian Worldview for
Children. Brannon howse's book fills a serious void and is an
invaluable tool that will assist you to train the heart and mind
of a child in the central Christian doctrines upon which they
can build their own faith and life.
As you may know, i "grew up" on television as d. J. tanner,
the oldest daughter on the tv sitcom Full House. While still
an early elementary-age child, i had to memorize my lines for
an episode and then, just a few days later, memorize an entirely
new script. i read and memorized thousands of pages. i also
had to be on time, sit quietly for long periods waiting for my
turn to be on camera, make dozens of public appearances each
year, be sharp for media interviews and do my schoolwork. i
was doing the job of an adult even though just a child. one
reason i was successful as a young actress is because i loved
Perhaps you have heard it said that kids are like sponges?
Based on my experience, it is true. often children can memorize
and recall information faster than adults. ask any elementary
school boy who is a sports fan, and let him tell you about
his favorite hockey team or baseball player. You'll feel the passion as the information spills forth. i've listened to a child present
facts about this spider, that snake, or some other bug-all
learned from watching Animal Planet. so why don't we expect
more of our kids when it comes to their Biblical knowledge?
Most children truly like to be challenged and will get excited
about the things which excite us. as a Christian parent,
i know one of the most important things i can do is share
with my children an excitement for and commitment to Biblical
truth. By teaching essentials of our faith to my children, i prepare
their hearts to seek God. Christian Worldview for Children is
helping my husband and me accomplish this goal.
What could be more important than placing in the heart
and mind of a child a deep conviction that Jesus Christ is God,
that there are good reasons to believe he rose from the dead,
that the Bible is a true and accurate revelation from beginning
to end, that all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God,
that salvation is found only in and through Jesus Christ, that
there is absolute truth for all time, people, and places? there
are far too many deceptive worldviews vying for the heart and
mind of your child, and only by training your child in Biblical
truth will he or she be quick to reject the lies of the false worldviews
that otherwise lead to destruction.
Teaching to the heart is vital if we want to grow up children
who passionately seek and follow God. What Christian parent
does not want that?
Thanks, Brannon, for writing this book, and thank you,
Christian adult, for reading it to a child.
