If you wish your children (or grandchildren) to be Christians
you must really take the trouble to be Christians yourselves.
Those are the only terms upon which the home will work the gracious miracle.

The Sunday school teacher asked a little girl if she knew who Matthew was. The answer was no. The teacher then asked if she knew who John was. Again the answer was no. Finally the teacher asked if she knew who Peter was. She answered, “I think he was a rabbit.”

Don’t force your child to pray. Instead, every night set aside fifteen minutes before his bedtime for reading and conversation. Show him (or her) pictures of Jesus, and tell him stories of the Savior. Talk to him of the heavenly Father. Explain to him that God sends the sun and the rain. Tell him it is God who makes the flowers grow, and gives us food to eat. Then lead him in prayers of thanksgiving and prayers asking the Heavenly Father for guidance and protection.

It’s a painful thing to witness the materialism of my kids,
but I know it’s only a reflection of what they learned from me.

There is just one way to bring up a child in the way he should go
and that is to travel that way yourself.
