The world fights hard for the hearts and affections of our children. We hear the statistics of children who turn away from the faith as soon as they leave home. Its a sad reality in todays culture, but it doesnt have to be that way. Raising our children takes courage, strength, love, and intentionality. God shows us the way. Deuteronomy 6:7 says, "Repeat them again and again to your children. Talk about them when you are at home and when you are on the road, when you are going to bed and when you are getting up." In essence, point them to Jesus constantly and consistently. Let all of life be all about Jesus. Taras book is a gift to parents who desire to guide their children into a love of Gods Word and a deeper faith.

"Point Me to Jesus is appropriately named. Tara McClary Reeves points young readers to Jesus and gently teaches how to follow Him to enjoy the good life He has planned. Using biblical stories, along with captivating historical events, and her personal illustrations, she explains key Christian principles: choosing to obey, forgiving, showing and sharing Jesus love, learning to pray, making good choices, serving and cooperating with others, being thankful, giving our worries to Jesus, and keeping Him in first place. Ive known the author since she was a little girl as she learned these truths from her devoted parents. With passion and creativity, she communicates one significant truth: following Jesus is the best decision anyone can make. A theme throughout the book is clearly stated here: "You can be sure God intends to use your life to accomplish big things" (May 14). Many precious young hearts will learn to trust and lean on Jesus."
