Are Your Family Devotions Fun and Informative?

Have you ever struggled to make family devotions work for your family? One child likes to color and the other wants to jump up and down. How do you hold both of their interests?

I have a treat for those of you with children and grandchildren in your life. My friend Karen Whiting’s new book just released. I want you to be among the first to know. Because Karen packs so many creative ideas into each lesson, there is something to fit every family’s needs. Karen has provided a link below so you can enjoy a free sample of this fun and informative resource.

52 Weekly Devotions for Families Called to Serve

As a parent, devotions were the heart of our family life. We all hold so many memories of them. They build faith, cognitive skills, and help us bond. These 52 weekly devotions give you a choice to fit your lifestyle (do as little or much as you want each week) and also help your children develop servant hearts as they read about people who serve others and Bible people who served others.
Enjoy hands-on fun, a contemporary story, a related Bible passage, and chat prompts all around a central weekly theme. Discover more about the lives of families with members who serve in the military, mission field, firefighters, law enforcement, EMTS, and even families who volunteer. You learn about adventures, following a call, and challenges such families face. Create a family faith scrapbook with the prompts given each week to save the memories of sharing faith as a family.
