I was chatting with a good friend last week and she said that she and her husband were struggling with how to best teach their children about their Christian faith. Their dilemma is that they want to teach them, but they also want them to be free to learn on their own.
As providence would have it, a resource on this very topic was recently sent to me and I was happy to share it with her. In my opinion, there is a big difference between “religion” as we know it and faith. My friends want to help their kids to make up their own mind — yes, they go to Church, but for them, their faith is wholly personal and they want to foster understanding of that faith within their own home and also allow their children to have the freedom to decide for themselves.
I’m happy to share the learning resource that was sent my way, in hopes that our Christian reader’s may find it beneficial. Entitled, “A Beginner’s Guide to Christianity,” I found it to be well written and in an easy-to-understand manner.
I feel passionate that faith is not something that can be taught, but rather, is something that can be nurtured, especially in the young. Faith must come from within and because my friends wish to let their children decide for themselves what they believe, this beginners guide is an excellent way to help get the seeds of curiosity flowing within them.
