Family Devotions

At its core, family devotions simply involve setting aside a designated time in family life in which to be devoted to God together. Along with reading, interacting with, and instruction from the Scriptures, families often include a time of prayer, a response of worship (singing), and personal application. You may also end by saying a blessing over your child.

Many Christian parents feel burdened for the faith of their children, but don't feel adequately equipped to disciple them.

Practical Tips for Regular Family Devotions

  • Have a regularly scheduled (and child friendly) time for devotions.
  • Keep track of time—stretch your children’s attention span, but don’t exasperate them.
  • If possible, the father should lead the devotional time.
  • Choose a regular place in your home—one with as few distractions as possible.
  • Put any and all electronic devices (e.g., phones, tablets) out of reach.
  • Begin your time with prayer.
  • End in prayer, and say a blessing over each child.
  • In order to motivate a younger child’s attentiveness, consider following your devotional time with a special snack or dessert.

Devotions for the mind, heart, and will

We believe that there is an important progression involved in encouraging our children for a life of faith in Christ. To put it very succinctly: MIND → HEART → WILL.

Children must first be presented with biblical truth for their minds to absorb, ponder, and understand. Knowledge of God and His Word is the essential first step for faith (Romans 10:17). You cannot trust, love, and act upon what you do not know.

Next, that truth must go beyond mere knowledge. It must reach and transform the heart so that children might truly embrace, cherish, and love the truth—specifically love of God through faith in Christ.

Finally, this love will affect the will as it comes under submission to Christ, producing decisions, choices, words, and actions that are pleasing to God.

While we must fully acknowledge that only God can bring about this Spirit-wrought, grace-dependent transformation, we believe that it is our responsibility to guide, inspire, and implore our children to make a personal and sincere response to God’s truth in their minds, hearts, and will. Therefore, our devotional resources are designed to instruct the mind, engage their hearts, and influence the will.
