Have you ever felt frustrated by the ways your family members treat each other?
Do you want to pray and read the Bible with your family,
but you don’t know how to get started?
Does faith feel like a peripheral part of your family life rather than the center of it?
Then this is the resource for you!
Family devotions at dinner and memorized prayers at bedtime can start to feel stale, compulsory…and boring. But, Parents, the Lord is anything but boring!
As a follower of Christ, you are a powerful spiritual influence on your spouse and kids. You can organize family faith initiatives that make your family’s spiritual life vibrant.
I’m so excited to share these ideas with you! I’ve done the legwork so you can get each of these initiatives rolling in as little as 10 minutes. Each activity is simple, inexpensive, and as short- or long-term as you’d like it to be. This resource has 12 ideas for you to try—one a month for a whole year! (And be sure to get the bonus ideas to implement alongside them.)
These initiatives are for the whole family. I’ve included modifications for toddlers, teens, and families of every size. I’ve also included ways to adjust the initiatives for different holiday seasons, and for your personal faith journey.
Best of all, these ideas are fun. Check out what other moms are saying about this free resource:
“Shannon, your creative ideas make devotion time sound fun! I love that you’ve included adaptations for a variety of age groups and family sizes. I look forward to trying these with my family.”
—Alana, mom of one and Language Arts teacher
“I’ve been wanting to have meaningful conversations about the Lord with my preschoolers and introduce them to Bible Study, but I didn’t know how. This gives me great ideas that I can start within 10 minutes, using materials I already have at home! And I love that these ideas can grow as my kids do.”
—Laurie, single mom of two
“I love how these ideas are presented—this makes family faith time feel much more doable for me. I found several ideas I never would have thought of, and ones I want to incorporate into my own faith life. What a great way to love our children and be intentional about showing them how much God cares.”
—Angie, mom of teens
The bottom line is this: You can make a difference in the spiritual life of your family. With this free resource, you can bring your family together to praise, love, and serve God as you never have before!
“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.”
