SAY THIS:
Who is alive?
Jesus is alive.
DO THIS:

 MORNING TIME


When you go into your baby's room, say, "Good morning, [baby's name]! Today is a great day because Jesus is alive!"

 FEEDING TIME


While feeding your baby this month, list all of your baby's friends. Say, "Mommy is your friend. Daddy is your friend. [Sibling's name] is your friend. ... And Jesus wants to be your friend forever!"

 CUDDLE TIME


Cuddle with your baby this month and pray, "Dear God, thank You for giving us Jesus to be our friend forever. I pray [child's name] will believe that Jesus is alive and trust Him to be his/her friend forever. We love You, God. In Jesus' name, amen."

 BATH TIME


Sing the following words to the tune of "London Bridge is Falling Down" while bathing your baby: "Jesus wants to be my friend, be my friend, be my friend. Jesus wants to be my friend. Jesus loves [child’s name]."

BASIC TRUTH:

JESUS WANTS TO BE MY FRIEND FOREVER.
