It may be common in your home to say a prayer at meals and at bedtime, but do not let that be the only time you talk to your child/children about God. Use every opportunity to bring God and Jesus into your conversations. Sing to, and with, them about Jesus. When the rain, thunder, and lightening comes and they cry or express fear, tell them God created all three. The rain will water the trees, plants, and the food for us to eat. Tell them we cannot live without rain, and God sends it to us because He is a Good God. When they express any fear, tell them God is with them and can protect them. Stop and pray with them when they are afraid and ask God to protect them and to take away their fear. And remember Mom, that is true for you also!
