"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 crosswords, 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.
Great for parents with growing kids
I've been looking for a book to help let my 7 yr old understand the SDA fundamental beliefs but couldn't find one until I found this book. Now we are reading it everyday and she gets so excited about it. She likes to read a lot and this holds her attention. She also liked the activities which reinforces what she learn in the stories. I am glad i found this book. Soon my daughter will be ready for baptism. I already recommended this book to a friend who has 3 daughters and she will definitely buy one.
