Nurturing a Child's Imagination!

I very much enjoy talking with my daughter about the Mother, Father and Christ. She often will ask me endless questions, although I do not always have the answers. Children are filled with wonder and imagination and I find it to be very rewarding to allow their imagination to flow.

Have you ever thought of asking your child about the Mother, Father and Christ and allow them to lead the conversation? I’ll bet you will receive all kinds of answers and stories. This allows us as parents to see how we have been teaching our child and if what we are telling them is taking hold in their little minds.

Sometimes I feel like my daughter doesn’t always hear me when I speak, something I am sure most parents are familiar with, but when I hear her speak of the Mother and Father, I know that she is taking in just as much as I am teaching.

We can always find ways to introduce the Mother and Father or talk about them if you have already been teaching them of the Kingdom within. My daughter is an only child and recently she has been asking if she can have a little sister.

I decided to take this into a new direction and she latched on to the conversation and had so many unique questions it made my heart smile and she has now become very comfortable being an only child, on this earth. I used her desire for having a baby sister, and turned it into a conversation about our elder brother, Christ.

Remember, we cannot just introduce the Father and Mother without introducing Christ, as one can only enter the Kingdom of the Father through Christ.

John 14:6 KJV –

“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”

I told her about how she has a big brother, Christ and He is also within us just as the Mother and Father are. I talked about how kind Christ is and how much He loves us, how He is waiting so patiently for us to come home.

I also explained to her that although I am her mom on this earth, in the Kingdom, I am her sister. She was incredibly excited to learn this. Allowing our children to lead our conversations can be so beneficial, they feel like they are being listened to and we can teach them to use these conversations to talk with the Father as well.

Christmas is approaching for those who celebrate and I find that this could perhaps be a great opportunity to start introducing Christ to your child, if you have not done so already. After-all, Christmas is supposed to be about Christ correct?

We have been led astray with the meaning of Christmas and the true history, I will not talk about this here as it is all well explained in The Divine Secret Garden Series, Book 3.

I am not saying that this is the only time that we should be talking about Christ, He should be brought into our lives each and every day. Always putting the Father through Christ first in our everyday lives, but this is an opportunity to talk about Christ and who He was on this earth and how He resides within us now and by walking in Faith on the path that He has set for us, is our way to the Kingdom.

When we talk with our children about an older brother that maybe they didn’t know about, can get them really excited and make them want to learn more. It can spark an amazing conversation between yourself and your child.

What if we even make up a little story about Christ, bring their imagination into it. Let them tell the story, and if they get stuck or go off track, correct, but allow them to lead.

Bringing imagination into learning can be greatly rewarding, not only will your child begin to imagine the Kingdom, but you will too. Ask your child, when we go to the Kingdom, what do you think we will do there?

What do you imagine the Kingdom looks like? What kind of animals do you think are in the Kingdom, maybe a lion? Maybe you could run with a lion or a tiger! Get their imagination flowing. Getting a child excited is the best way to teach them, and we are alongside them, guiding and teaching. They will begin to learn more and they will want to learn more.

Mark 10:15 –

“Verily I say unto you, whosoever shall not receive the Kingdom of the Father as a little child, he shall not enter therein.”

What this verse is saying is that we must become like that little child again to enter the Father’s Kingdom, we must let go and surrender our will to Him just as our children do with us. Have complete Faith in His plan.

When talking with your child, use YOUR imagination, become a child with them, and allow them to always be a child and always use their imagination. Our imaginations are stripped from us far too early, this is all accomplished by the world’s design. Satan does not want us to stay in a childlike state, he wants us to believe that we are growing up and as we age, we can do everything on our own.

This mentality is exactly what got us here in the first place, in the war in Heaven, we thought we could fight our own battles and forgot to turn to our Father for help. Now is the time to get out of that state of mind and turn our hearts back to the Father through Christ for help.

John 15:4-5 -

“Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.

I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.”


As parents we have a responsibility, a very important one, this responsibility is not what this world has taught us in how to raise our children. On this earth we have been led to believe that we must raise our children to grow up towards adulthood and learn to do everything on their own.

This is not the responsibility that I am talking about, I am talking about helping our children to hold onto being a child and in turn we can learn from them to return to being a child again, surrendering our will completely over to the Father through Christ.

If you think you can do this on your own, I am sorry but you have been led astray, it is only through complete Faith and surrender that we may return home.

Help your child stay a child, help them to use their imagination always and not get stuck in this physical world. Teach them of the Kingdom, teach them of the Father through Christ, nurture their imagination, show them the way down the narrow path home.
