Raising young children to grow up in the Lord and to know and love Him is my biggest desire and yet my biggest fear. I want (as I believe most parents do) for my children to KNOW God, who He is and to turn to Him. I want God and His word to be part of their DAILY lives not just part of their lives on Sunday and Wednesday when we are at church. We listen to church music. We have daily devotional time with the kids. We do memory verses with them. However, I know there is more that we could and should be doing. My friend, Melissa, was sparked by a friend's post on her blog. Which, in turned, rekindled my spark on this subject as well. One thing I have LOVED about blogging is the sharing of ideas and concerns from others out there. This is something I think we all worry about and can improve on daily. We should never be set in our ways and not working on doing and learning more. So, what are some ideas you have to make God and His word part of your daily life? Here is what we do already . . . . . .
Glorify God when we see His hand in creation.
Thank God for blessings each day.
Have a prayer list for those who need our prayers.
Talk about what God would want us to do in different situations.
Look at what the Bible says about different situations and how we should deal with it.
Put scriptures in LB's lunch box at school.
Use Bible verses in daily conversations.
