This time should be a happy and fun part of their lives. Make up songs and put them with familiar tunes. A sample would be — Row, Row, Row your boat, words — Believe, Believe, Believe the Lord! Do not be afraid! God’s provided all our needs, His promises He gave. Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star, words — Daniel’s in the lion’s Den, Hungry lions there with him. Daniel prays and does not fear, He knows the Lord is near. You can be a Daniel, too. Believe God takes care of you. Children are able to remember the training for a longer period of time when the words are connected with a tune.
As your children grow older and begin to ask questions, encourage their questions and answer them as honestly and as simply as you are able, using the children’s vocabulary. The children need to know about the Lord Jesus Christ taking care of their sin problem for them so that they are able to spend forever life in heaven with God. Communicate the salvation message, not overwhelming them or pressuring them into making a decision. Let the Holy Spirit prepare the soil in their souls and let them make their own decision to believe.
