Isn’t that the hope of every Christian parent? We want our kids to have a growing and thriving relationship with Him. Question: did you have that as a kid? While I grew up in a Christian home, it wasn’t my first choice because I really didn’t know Him until later. But here are some reasons why I came to Christ and follow Him today. The obvious thing is that the Holy Spirit called me, but my parents did a lot right. My parents wanted to know God more and showed us that. They always pointed out life lessons in a spiritual context. They regularly read Scripture with us, asked questions, and prayed with us. It doesn’t guarantee salvation in our kids—but it’s certainly a good foundation for it.
