God has not blessed me with the gift of teaching... especially when it comes to teaching children. I think it is so important to share my faith with my children, to teach them about God's love, and teach them their need for Salvation. However I am really struggling with it. I have such a hard time articulating these things in a way that they can understand. Just the other day I was talking about Jesus, salvation, and heaven with Kyle and after our conversation he decided he didn't want to get saved because he didn't want to have to die and go to heaven and have to leave his mommy. If it weren't such a serious important thing I would chuckle at his response, but instead it makes me very anxious that he's not understanding it.
Every other mother I know seems to have these things completely under control, or at least that is the impression I get when I talk to them or read their blog. Am I the only one who struggles with this? Do any of you moms who do have this figured out have any helpful advice? Do you have any good books to recommend,or online sites that are particularly helpful to you that would assist me as I try to 'translate' these important things to my children?
