As parents we all want to pass down a legacy to our children. As Christian parents we want to pass down a legacy of faith to our children. But we often feel unsure that we’re doing it right, or doing it at all. We all know people who have chosen to take the easy way out and allow the church to raise their children and to give them the godly legacy. But we can’t do that.
Jim Burns and Jeremy Lee collaborated on a book, Pass It On, Building a legacy of Faith for your children through practical and memorable experiences. In its pages is nestled a wealth of information and ideas.
The first few chapters are spent telling you how it’s important to consciously leave a faith legacy to and for your children. The rest of the book is spent giving you ideas on how to celebrate your child’s “Rite of Passage” at every age, from kindergarten through their senior year of high school.
If you’re children are already in middle school or high school, or late elementary, it’s okay! You can pick up this book and start right where your children are. You can also go back and do a few of the celebrations you missed if they apply.
Each celebration is designed to celebrate your child and to follow the directive in Deuteronomy 6 to “teach them to your children when you sit at home and when you walk along the way, when you lie down and when you get up. Each chapter/celebration is also designed to correspond to what your child is experiencing already.
I love the practicality of this book! It is one you can use over and over and then pass it around to your friends. It can be used much the way The Blessing has been used in the past.
I received a free copy of this book from Litfuse for the purpose of review. All opinions are my own.
