Can I be honest? I’ve always been a bit nervous about answering that dreaded question: “Mommy, where do babies come from?” I’m nervous that I might stumble my way through a vague-at-best response that either leaves my daughter completely confused or, perhaps worse, decidedly more inquisitive.

I don’t have the answer to an age-appropriate conversation with your child. In fact, I’d love to hear your advice in the comment section. What I can share is something that I think any child (and adult) should delight to know: God is love. What does that have to do with “where babies come from”? Well, everything.
