Ignite Your Child’s Love for Jesus

FaithLaunch isn't the only method for introducing your child to Jesus. But it's a good way to do it without pressuring your child, exhausting yourself or upending your family's schedule.

What’s FaithLaunch?

You’re about to discover a fun, easy way to do one of the most important things in the world. It’s FaithLaunch: A Simple Plan to Ignite Your Child’s Love for Jesus by John Trent and Jane Vogel.

FaithLaunch isn’t the only method for introducing your child to Jesus, of course. But it’s a good way to do it without pressuring your child, exhausting yourself, or upending your family’s schedule. Each of the 13 “Family Times” takes about 30 to 45 minutes; that’s 30 to 45 minutes of togetherness, not tedium. You might use one Family Time each week for 90 days — or bits and pieces over a longer period. You get to decide, because FaithLaunch is flexible.

The goal is to prepare your child to begin a relationship with God. Since so many children receive Christ as Savior when they’re 4 to 7 years old, each Family Time is written with that age group in mind. But shifting gears for kids ages 8 to 12 is easy; just use the optional activities.

FaithLaunch gives you plenty of fun ways to learn, including three Adventures in Odyssey episodes to listen to. You’ll sculpt with clay, stage a treasure hunt, even tell a story with the help of your child’s action figures or dolls. If you need an excuse to play with your child, here it is! And if you need permission to talk about what’s important, that’s here, too.

The plan for each Family Time is easy to follow. Your goal is clear, and the items you’ll need are listed — right down to snacks you might enjoy. To boost your confidence, things you might say are spelled out in bold type — with answers to questions in parentheses. And you’re always free to adapt the plan to fit you and your child.

There’s a bonus, too — another confidence booster. In Part III of the book you’ll find answers to questions your child might ask about God, the Bible, Jesus, joining God’s family, and more. So there’s no need to panic if your child wants to know something that isn’t on the tip of your tongue!

Adapted from FaithLaunch: A Simple Plan to Ignite Your Child’s Love for Jesus by John Trent, Ph.D., and Jane Vogel (Focus on the Family/Tyndale, 2008)

Understand How to Respect and Love your Son Well

Why doesn’t my son listen to me? Have you ever asked that question? The truth is, how you see your son and talk to him has a significant effect on how he thinks and acts. That’s why we want to help you. In fact, we’ve created a free five-part video series called “Recognizing Your Son’s Need for Respect” that will help you understand how showing respect, rather than shaming and badgering, will serve to motivate and guide your son.
