   JANUARY

       2019

BASIC TRUTH: Jesus wants to be my friend forever.
SAY THIS:
Who do you need?
You need Jesus.
DO THIS:

 MORNING TIME


When you go into your baby's room this month, say, "Good morning! I need to see my special little [guy/girl]! There you are! Mommy/Daddy also needs Jesus. I need Jesus more than anything!"

 FEEDING TIME


While feeding your baby this month, say, "You need your bottle. You need clean diapers. You need warm baths. You need lots of love. But more than anything, you need Jesus."

 CUDDLE TIME


Cuddle up with your baby this month and pray, "Dear God, thank You for letting me be [child's name]'s mommy/daddy. I want the way I live to show him/her that I truly believe Jesus is all I need. Please help me do that. I want him/her to know that he/she needs Jesus, and Jesus will always be there ready to help. I love You, God. In Jesus' name, amen."

 BATH TIME


As you bathe your baby this month say, "I need Jesus. Yes, I do. I need Jesus. How about you?" Touch your baby's nose or belly button when you say "you."
