Understand the power of accepting God’s blessing and how to share it with your children, grandchildren, and others.

"Truly I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child will not enter it at all. And, he took them in his arms and began blessing them, laying His hands on them."                   
   Mark 10:15-16

Tips for Getting Started Blessing Your Child:
  • When: You can share a blessing at any time or any age, at special occasions, bedtime, or breakfast.
  • Explain: What you are doing in an age appropriate way.
    • Example: "We are going to try something new together to help us grow in faith as a family."
  • How long: Blessings can be short and sweet or longer when you have more time.
  • What words: 
    • On the go? Keep it short and sweet: "God made you great (give an example)_________"
    • Have a little more time? Pray scripture such as Number 6:24-26
  • God's name: Always use God's name in your blessing. He is the source of all blessings.
  • Child's name: Use your child's name in a loving way. (It was chosen very carefully, and God knows them by name.)
  • Practice: Be consistent and don't give up. The fruit of the blessing is worth it!
