"Children of eight, ten, or twelve years are old enough to be addressed on the subject of personal religion. Do not teach your children with reference to some future period when they shall be old enough to repent and believe the truth. If properly instructed, very young children may have correct views of their state as sinners and of the way of salvation through Christ"
–Ellen White, Child Guidance, p. 490.
This baptismal study guide will prepare children age 8-10 for a wonderful walk with Jesus. It offers lessons with activities that parents and children can enjoy together as a bonding experience. The activities include not only fill-in-the-blank but also word games, Bible crossword, and even a maze.
The authors use simple but effective object lessons from everyday life to explain basic doctrines such as the gospel, Sabbath, Second Coming, tithing, diet, dress, death, judgment, the gift of prophecy, and baptism. What Jesus does for us in the judgment, for example, is like what a boy in any ordinary family might do for his naughty puppy who messed up the carpet.
Making Jesus My Best Friend will entice your child to orient his or her life toward heaven with the aid of the treasure map, the Bible.
