As a family we now have a set time where we sit together each night before bed and have prayer time and reading time.
Everyone takes turns reading as well.
Right now, SJ (7) reads to us from A Child's First Bible. I picked this up to read to my two little ones and it's become part of our night time routine.
SR (9) reads to us from Jesus Calling for Kids. This book is so wonderful. They also make one for adults as well. Both are beautiful books and would make a lovely gift. Their are entries for everyday, undated so you can use them over and over as part of your devotion time.
DV (4) is not reading yet but he tells us stories about God and the bible from his head. It's so cute when he tells us.
EL (2) she likes us to read Good Night Moon or Time for Bed so either Bry or I read one or both.
And I read from The Power of a Praying Kid. And then we start our prayer time.
We are enjoying this time together so much that last night the kids and I talked about doing prayers to start our day out also.
We've been doing great with keeping on task with keeping up with the house also. Not going for model clean here, just neat and tidy as it can be. We spend 45 minutes per day together doing our chores.
I still need to get the Children's hour (time devoted to just doing something fun with the kids) set in stone, I'm working on that. We've been sitting outside, and having fun playing horse shoes, catch and water gun fights. We've also committed to some craft or art time weekly. I had signed my older two up for a class but after talk with Bry and prayers, we opted to remove them from that. So we spent some time this week making some air dry clay figures at home which was a huge mess but so fun. We are going to paint them this week.
I've been reading some great books. Two I'm really Enjoying are She's Gonna Blow and Prayer does it make any difference.
