Pray they’ll choose to follow Jesus every time you think about them, and continue to be kind. (1 Timothy 2:1-4)
Create some action steps to share the Good News about Jesus with family, friends, or people you know as a family. Let your child see you sharing your faith with others and then talk about it with them after the event. Train them to share their faith as you share your faith.
