Many prospective godparents ask, "What do I have to do?" A surprising number continue to ask that question even after they are godparents. Here, at last, are some practical answers. Not simply a laundry list of activities, or a how-to guide, this book gives godparents an understanding of what-to-do and why-to-do-it, in a way that reinforces their commitment as sponsors and Christians. These practical ideas can help sponsors and god-children develop lifelong relationships that are solidly founded in Christ. Paperback. 48 pages.
