One of the most helpful pieces of advice I received when I started down this faith and family journey was to write stuff down. Write down the prayers and the praises, the things that work and the things that don’t, the funny things and the hard things. That way, when you need help, you have a whole library of experiences and helpful resources to look back at and learn from.
So often I tend to write in story form, but every now and then – through trial and error – I find something tangible I can pass on to others.
Here are some of those tangible things I’ve found that works for us, and some free resources that hopefully will also work for you.
Our family has been playing Bible trivia around the table for years, and after numerous people asked where we got the questions, I created this to share with others. This is a downloadable, printable PDF file with five pages of colorful and easy-to-read Bible Trivia Cards. Each card has a trivia question and the Scripture verse that contains the answer.
It can be easy to fall into a routine with our prayers – especially when we’re young and haven’t had years of relationship-building with God. Yet, He wants us to bring Him everything – to pray without ceasing. That can be hard for adults, but I asked myself, how can I get our kids to rethink the way they pray? This is a list of questions you can ask your children to help them broaden their conversations with you and in prayer.
Have you ever tried to pray and then got stuck because you weren’t sure what to say? Or perhaps you would like to enhance your own personal quiet time but aren’t sure how. 21 Days of Prayer Journal Prompts gives you a daily question to start you off. Many days come with Scripture readings for additional study or to give you a frame of reference for what God says about those topics.
I always wanted to be like those people that knew Scripture so well they could speak it, pray it, and apply it in their circumstances – but I wasn’t sure how to do that. This devotional is a four-week email series that sends short, daily devotions that help you memorize Scripture and teach habits that will help you even after the four weeks are up.
