"Pass it on" book review!

It can be a little intimidating to know that most of what your child learns about God comes primarily from his mother and father, Parents can't rely on the churches or Christian schools to teach our children who God is. We must do it. In "Pass It On" by Jim Burns and Jeremy Lee, they have created Rites of Passages that we can celebrate with our children each year until they are grown. Special milestones to teach them who God is and what His plan is for our children.

The beginning of the book explains how we can leave a legacy of faith for our children. The remaining chapters are spent giving different ideas of Rites of Passage to try. Each milestone is meant to point your child towards God. If you are just now picking up this book and you already have a child in middle school, you can easily just pick up at that stage and perhaps even backtrack a couple milestones until you reach the correct milestone.

I found this book to be a really interesting read! The first time I sat down to read it, I read through almost half of the book in just that sitting. These two guys know their stuff and I felt like I was sitting down with a youth pastor just chatting about my kids. I think the ideas they have listed here are truly neat. It's one of those things where you can kind of pick and choose which things you will want to do with your family. You can customize it to fit you and your kids.

This is an excellent read that I would highly recommend. I rate it as 5 stars.

I received this book for free from Litfuse in exchange for my honest unbiased opinion.
