Prayer works with little minds and hearts! It is so magical to watch your children's faith in Jesus grow. We are a Christian family. I pray over my boys before bed every night and they say their prayers. I do not pray all day every day and my kids are not reading their bibles all day every day. Rather, we focus on a Christian approach to dealing with life. For instance, when Bodie is scared of the dark, we pray. When Declan thinks he hears something under his bed, we pray. When we are struggling with a temper tantrum and nothing has worked to calm them down, we pray. Giving our kids a higher power to believe in is such a useful tool. On this page I will share my thoughts and feelings about raising followers of Jesus, and how much having the safety and security of Him has helped our children conquer some of the most common childhood fears.
