Getting Started...

Suggested Scenarios:

  1. You are near the beginning of your spiritual walk and you are working on the fundamentals

    •   Start small: 1 or 2 times/week. 5 minutes each day
    •   Read the devotion together, answer the questions
    •   Pray together
    •   Could be done after dinner/breakfast or at bedtime
  2. You have been walking with Jesus for a little while and you are ready to go a little deeper

    •   Designate 3 or 4 times/week. 10 minutes each day
    •   Read the devotion together, read the correlating scriptures together, discuss the questions and talk about       practical ways you see God working in your lives.
    •   Pray together-take turns, pray for someone outside your family (church, friend, neighbor, coworker, etc.)
    •   Using mealtimes or bedtime can be convenient
  3. You have a well-established walk with Jesus and you are ready to help others on their journey

    •   Designate time (20 minutes or more) each day
    •   Use the suggested devotions, correlating scriptures, concordances, etc. to gain a deeper understanding of what God is pointing you toward. Look for connections to other scriptures and sharing how God is revealing himself in your lives, discussing how you can grow closer to Him.
    •   Pray together; taking time to pray for others such as your family, community, the world, and for those that have wronged you, etc.
    •   Set a designated time for family worship outside of other activities.
    •   Schedule time regularly to serve others as a family (helping someone in church, in the community, at a charitable organization, etc.) This could be monthly, quarterly, etc. as best fits your family.
