Jesus and Ice Road Truckers

A recent conversation with my 5 year old son went something like this (we were at a local asian buffet):

"Daddy, is this a Chinese restaurant?"
"Well, yeah." Thinking of the menu, I continued, "I guess it's kind of Chinese and Japanese."
"Do Chinese people believe in Buddha?" he asked
"Well, many do, but some believe in Jesus, and some believe in other things" I said
"We need to tell them about Jesus." My son asserted
"Yeah, buddy, we do. We need to always be ready to share about God if we get the chance."
"Yep," he agreed.

There was a brief silence and I wondered what else might come from this teachable moment.  My son spoke up:

"Daddy, when are we gonna watch Ice Road Truckers again?"


  1. I had a similar conversation with my daughter. It went something like this:

    Hollis: I wish I could talk to God.
    Me: You can talk to God whenever you want, that's what we're doing when we pray.
    Hollis: I didn't mean to say that out loud.

  2. Jodie- that sounds about right! Thanks for sharing
