Even persons who are willing to serve in this important capacity, often are not quite sure what to do or how to do it. This book explains some of the history and theology of godparenting, along with helpful tips and activity suggestions for godparents to do with their godchildren, organized around the sections of the Baptismal Covenant.
Publishers Description Being a godparent is a great honor and a sacred responsibility. Baptism, after all, is at the center of Christian life, and godparents play a critical role in celebrating this sacrament.

A lovely keepsake gift for godparents and a handy guide to use for years to come. "

Reviews - What do customers think about Godparenting: Nurturing the Next Generation?
GREAT resource! Mar 26, 2008
For years, people have asked "What's a Godparent supposed to do?" Now there is a book that gives plenty of answers to that question. I have bought several 'loner' copies for parents and godparents, and recommend it to new families. A valuable resource, too, for parents, with lots of ideas for celebrating the seasons of the Church year (besides Santa!) and specific occasions to mark. A great bonus is that activities are listed on pages with a grey backgound-very easy to find and it's always great to have a list to choose from.
