I just read one of the sweetest books about Jesus to my children.
My Friend Jesus: The Gospel for Kids by Kathryn Slattery tells the story of Jesus in a gentle way that your children will be able to easily follow and understand. This book is a great way to teach your 5-10 year old children (although I feel it can be easily enjoyed by children even younger; it’s never too earlier to teach your kids about Jesus) about the life of Jesus, why He is the most important person that ever lived, and why He is the best friend they will ever have.
My Friend Jesus: The Gospel for Kids begins with Jesus’ birth, then goes on to tell about the things He did and said while living on earth, why He died on the cross for us, and that He came back to life and is now living in heaven. The book finishes up by telling children that if we love and believe in Jesus, that we too will live in heaven with Jesus when our life on earth is over. There is even a short, simple prayer at the end that will help your child ask Jesus into their hearts.
From the publisher:
Jesus can be your friend and Savior.
All Christian parents want their children to come to a relationship with Jesus. My Friend Jesus is written in fresh, clear language that children can understand and is appropriate for all denominations. The book not only tells the gospel story about Jesus, but also, in the most natural, gentle way, introduces children to a personal relationship with Him. A prayer at the end of the book guides children into that life-changing friendship with Jesus. This is the book author Kathryn Slattery wishes she had when her own children were young—which is the reason she wrote it!
I’m so thrilled to add My Friend Jesus: The Gospel for Kids to our bookshelf. I love the sweet and gentle way the author writes to her young audience, so they can understand just how important and special Jesus is to them and how much God loves each and every one of us. If you are looking for a book that will help you tell your children the good news of Jesus so they will easily comprehend it, then this is your book. I highly recommend it!
This 32-page, hardcover book retails for $12.00.

All three of my girls have been baptized. They all strive to have a daily walk with the Lord 🙂
That’s awesome! I love to hear that!
My oldest daughter, now five, asked Christ into her heart last year – at age four – on Christmas Eve. She was very excited to go back with her younger siblings (now 4, 2, and 1 month) to show them the spot where she prayed with Daddy and celebrate her first spiritual birthday! She’s always talking with her siblings and friends about Jesus. I can’t wait to see how God uses her to impact this world for Him!
Heather Smith says
My children (ages 5 & 6) have not yet been baptized, but the seeds are being planted and they are understanding more and more about grace and salvation every day.
Kortney Picker says
No, my daughter just turned 2 in November, but she does say “Jesus is Lord” and “I love Jesus”, she also really likes playing with baby Jesus from her Little People Nativity set!
Not yet at age 4, do think it will be in next year or so.

we are in the process of going through baptism
Sarah D says
Our oldest son, who is now 17 was saved when he was 4. His younger brothers were saved when they were 7 and 8. They are asking questions about baptism. Salvation is such a beautiful thing!
They haven’t…they are very young. I can imagine the joy in a parents heart when this happens. I cry when I hear my kids say Jesus or heaven so I imagine it is beautiful!!
Katie L. says
My child isn’t here yet… but will be in a few months! So, nope he/she hasn’t asked Jesus yet.
Sharon F says
Yes. My son, when he was 8. I was blessed to be able to lead him. It was a great moment.
Lorayne Gothard says
My son has and he is 16 now, he has not been baptized as an adult yet, only as a baby.
Both of our kiddos say they have asked Jesus in their hearts, but don’t know when since they just moved in with us 3 months ago.
Sacha Schroeder says
Yes. My son was 7.
