Train a child in the way he should go,and when he is old he will not turn from it. Proverbs 22:6

Recently, I was reading a blog post and noticed that the children were having a morning devotion. Usually, I would read the bible with my girls at night or do a devotion with them then. Lately though, it seems that we are rushing at bedtime and our devotion time has become inconsistent. I want to stress the importance of reading God's word daily, so I'd like to be a better role-model for my children. Therefore, I'm thinking about trying a morning devotion. We can all put God first before our day even begin. When Sunshine was in Kindergarten, we would pray every morning before she went to class. I miss these morning time prayers with her.
Do you do a devotion with your children? Do you prefer doing this during the day or at night? I'd love to hear from other Christian families about what you do for your devotions in order to grow together.
Welcome! I'm Jen, the mother of 3 beautiful blessings! My little man- age 3 years, Peanut-age 8, and Sunshine- age 10. Celebrated 17 years of marriage this past year- Wow! Enjoy exploring and creating with my little ones and those I care for part-time. Taking a break from my Elementary Education career to have more time with my family.
This site is dedicated to one of Abby's first teachers. God uses her daily to touch the lives of children (her Shining Stars). She touches the lives of grownups, too. She taught me to pray not only for the big things in my children's lives, but also for their daily boo boos! We are very blessed to have her in our lives!
