  1. * I send a card and small gift on each Godchild’s baptism birthday. Sometimes it is a Bible story book or Christian CD. I have also given each of them their own Nativity that they can display. One thing I tried was sending a small amount of money and then telling them to use it to help someone else. I gave suggestions such as Samaritan’s Purse and the Lutheran Malaria initiative.

    * I also keep them in prayer — sometimes I pray for them in the same way I pray for my own children using the prayer book that was suggested in a previous post.

    *At confirmation as part of their gift, I made a foldable book which included their baptism and confirmation in it. After confirmation I am trying to stay more in contact with them through facebook and/or e-mail. I can SEE what they are up to – and pray for them as teenagers. Still sending a card to remind them of their baptism and confirmation.

    * A great resource is the book, A Word to My Sponsor: Celebrating the Life of Your Godchild by Richard and Hazel Bimler
