For the past few months we have been trying to do better about having regular family devotions. Sometimes we block out time for it in the morning, and sometimes we do it at night, just before bed. . The boys have loved learning new songs! We sing the same hymn (first verse & chorus) several times a day for a week straight, before moving on to a new song. They pick it up so fast! Usually by the third day, they have it down. 🎵👦🏼👦🏻🎶 It’s been so sweet to hear their little voices singing these song around the house during the day. And when we go to church, Spurgeon has asked “Are we going to sing our song today?” . We have also been doing some scripture memory for a few minutes each day, adding in a new verse every week or so. We add hand motions to the verse, and that helps us all remember. Sometimes we also recite a bit from the Baptist catechism for kids. . For Bible stories, we have been using “The Big Picture Story Bible” by David Helm. The boys love the illustrations and they never forget to ask for a story before bed! . Sometimes we miss days, but it’s helpful to have a goal—something we’re striving for! . I’d love to hear from some of you! What are your favorite traditions or resources you use in teaching your kids about Jesus?
