HOW IT WILL WORK
The first step for any family wanting to start a having weekly family devotions it to set aside a regular time each week to do it. After dinner works great for us but we have also had success in the morning after breakfast. Don’t look for perfection when having family devotions. There is no perfect family and there is no set way to do this. Figure our what length and format works best for you family and have fun!
Each lesson includes worship singing scripture, scripture reading or bible story, memory verse, and prayer. Please feel free to adjust and modify these family devotions as needed for your family.
The memory verse for this unit will be Galatians 5:22-23. I have found that repeating the same verse to our kids is the best way for them to memorize and learn.
Our family will be doing each lesson once a week, for three weeks. Starting in September there will be a new devotion posted every three weeks with a break in November and December. Be sure to check out the 3 lesson Christmas Family Devotion starting in December.
