What will you say when your child asks how Jesus can fit inside his heart? Here's help with responding in words your little one will understand. Leading Your Child to Jesus equips you with the simple, effective communication tools that will help you discuss salvation with your child. They've been proven through David Staal's years with Willow Creek Community Church's Promiseland children's ministry and through his personal experiences as a parent. Learn how to share you own salvation story, explain the gospel in kid-friendly language, and lead your child in a prayer of salvation. Based on examples from the book of Acts, Leading Your Child to Jesus provides you with key biblical concepts on effective communication and includes exercises to help you put those concepts into action. The enormity of leading your child to Christ doesn't have to leave you tongue-tied. You can help your little one make the most important decision of his or her life-the decision to follow Jesus.
