Helping kids know Jesus

Tolhurst Creative

The best way to teach your children the Christian faith is to live as a Christian yourself—to treat others with love and respect, to show sorrow and repentance when you have sinned, to offer forgiveness when others wrong you, to read the Bible and pray with your family. But to help your children grow in their faith, it can also be helpful to connect them with Christian resources. Many of the options listed here require only a good internet connection. Others are available at your local Adventist Book Centre. Which of these resources would be best for your children?


This series of daily Bible studies is designed for children according to their age, with resources available for 0–2-year-olds, 3–4-year-olds and 5–9-year-olds.
