  • By living our life. We bless the food when we eat....we pray together...God comes up naturally in our conversation...My children ask questions....I ask them questions about what they think....we light candles when we pray sometimes....we go to church and worship sometimes...

  • RIght now we're not in church, but I use books and stories, and say prayers every night.
    I bring up and mention/incorporate God in daily conversations, too.

  • she watches Veggie Tales and goes to a Sunday school class for her age...but i doubt she really knows much about God, shes only 2. and i dont really actively teach her anything either.

  • He's not even three yet, so I'm not pushing it, although he loves Veggie Tales. As he gets older I'll find ways to bring up the subject, but I'm wanting him to develop interest on his own, to open up the way of communication for it. Until he's older - old enough to sit down and really explain things to - I'm wanting to keep it simple. I do plan on educating him on all of the different religions (or all that I'm able to) in order to present him with all of his options and all the different ways of thinking/believing so that he may best find what resonates with him. I just don't want to overload him too soon, so that's why I'm not going to really get into it until he's older.

  • when they were younger I would read a devotional and ask questions about what they think. They are teens and choosing their own way... of course I am praying for them :-)

  • I tell them stories from the bible and encourage them to read it themselves.

  • My son is only 2, so it is difficult to teach him very much about God. I teach him by living my life in a Christlike manner and teaching him the same values. I also take him to church where he learns about Christ through music and stories.
