Heaven for Kids by Randy AlcornIn a language kids can understand, Randy Alcorn explores Biblical answers to the questions kids often have about heaven. As in the adult title, Heaven, he addresses the difference between the present Heaven, where we go when we die, and the New Earth, where we will live forever with Jesus after he returns. Intended for kids age 8-12, Heaven for Kids is sure to be an excellent resource for families, especially those in which the parents have read the adult title and wish to pass on that same level of understanding to their children. The book features ten chapters of questions, and answers based on scripture and written in a style relevant to todays kids. The book also has a summary of the Gospel for those who want to be sure they are going to Heaven someday. Randy encourages kids to live in Light of Heaven.
Children's Questions About Death - And What To Answer
The film release of Heaven Is For Real brings the best-selling book about a boy who visited Heaven to life on the big screen--and into the mainstream. Whether of not they see the movie, chances are your kids have some questions about Heaven. Talking about Heaven is a two-sided coin. The old saying goes, everybody wants to go to Heaven, but nobody wants to die. In the same vein, talking to children about death can feel awkward and potentially painful. Thankfully, films and books like Heaven Is For Real might open the door to have a conversation with your kids about these topics.
Questions children ask about death
Remember that children hear a lot more of what goes on around them than you might realise. - Here are Biblical answers to common questions kids ask about God.
Death and Heaven. Not necessarily easy subjects to discuss, even for a Christian adult. While our faith rests in the hope of Eternal Life through Christ, for most of us, the death of a loved one who is a believer is still something with which we struggle to understand and cope with. We may wonder how to protect the hearts of our children from pain when a death occurs in our family or circle of friends. How to do we tackle the subjects of physical death and the hope of Heaven, without totally scaring our kids, as we ourselves are dealing with our own plethora of emotions?
My son is obsessed with death. Well, perhaps obsessed is slightly too melodramatic but something has piqued his curiosity about the state of not living. I thought it was going to be a passing phase of curiousness , a bit like what the other planets are called, or why there are holes in bagels, or how cars are made. I can see where all these questions come from: a topic they are covering at nursery, or a thought sprung from watching his toasted bagel spin merrily on his finger:. But I am pretty sure it is not so you can spin your breakfast round your finger. Put it down please.
