Have you ever asked your parents what they would do differently if they could go back in time and parent again? I asked my dad this and without hesitating, he said: I would get to know my kids more. My dad is awesome – it surprised me that he felt like he could have gotten to know myself and two siblings better.
I’ve thought about his words often since becoming a parent. My heart’s desire is the same as his – I want to KNOW my kids.
But life gets so busy. After days when I’ve hustled my kids to school, focused them on their after-school homework and driven them to their evening activities, I often find myself later wondering have I even really talked to my kids today?
I needed a tool to make sure I was connecting with the hearts of my children most days. (Excluding the days we’re simply surviving – the “perfect” connection is going to happen every day.)
So, I created a simple devotional that can be done in the car, around the dinner or during tuck-ins. Not only does the family devotional help unlock my children’s hearts and voices, but it also lavishes other life-giving gifts. The devotional…
teaches your children that their voice is important.
creates a home where they feel connected.
teaches the truth of what it means to be a child of God – so valued and loved.
opens our children’s eyes (and our eyes!) to see God at work all around them.
helps our children (and us!) hear God’s voice.
Hear me explain more about how this devotional works and how it can empower your family as well.
We hope your family loves this devotional as much as our family does. Click below and I’ll send it right to your inbox.
