Watch the Video
Please watch the short video where you will hear from both experts and ordinary families as they describe the importance of being prepared to lead your child to Christ when ready and share practical suggestions from their experiences.
Get The Kit
To help you get started, this kit includes a guide that offers practical tips and what we consider to be some of the best resources to help you begin the process of blessing your child.
To help you begin a daily blessing routine, you will find a card to frame and place beside your child’s bed. The physical version of the kit includes a coin to carry as a reminder of the five elements of an effective blessing. When your child is old enough, you can give him or her the coin as a symbol of your parental blessing.
Choose what days and times you will bless your child each week and mark it on your schedule right now in order to turn good intentions into practice.
