Heaven for Kids, by Randy Alcorn: Teaching my children now about the New Earth, before they develop negative or untrue, ideas about Heaven, is quite important to my husband and I. We want our children to be excited about meeting Jesus and God and not to have fears or doubts. The book raises all of the questions that kids ask about heaven and answers them with illustrations they can understand.
This book should be a part of every curriculum for children in my opinion. The truths it teaches are timeless and necessary to combat the lies about Heaven and the New Earth that too many Christians start believing when they are young children.
We have been studying Heaven and my daughter has been keeping a little journal called a Heaven stick book. Each week, she answers questions related to the chapters we read together. She is learning about a very special place that God is making.
Where relevant, I am including pages from Randy Alcorn’s book, Heaven for Kids, for you to reference if you need to.
