Back in the fall of last year I began sharing our family devotions on the blog. I had all the lessons typed up and ready to post and forgot to publish them. Along the way I discovered that there were some things that needed to be tweaked to work better for our family, especially now that we have a newborn!
I am happy and excited to share our full 9 lesson unit of the Fruit of the Spirit for Preschoolers and Toddlers!
Below are the Supplies + Resources for our Fruit of the Spirit Family Devotional Unit. Affiliate links are included for your convenience.
- The Jesus Storybook Bible
- The Good Samaritan (5 Minute Bible Stories)
- 9 Fruits Alive (GodCounts Series)
- Seeds Family Worship – Seeds of Character
If you have any questions feel free to ask. This family devotion unit will always remain free, but I love getting feedback! Let me know what did or didn’t work for you.
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 out what length and format works best for you and have fun!
Once you have your day of the week and time set for your family devotions don’t schedule anything else during that time. Remember it is only 20-30 minutes each week. Making this time a priority for your family shows your children how important it is to spend time together in God’s Word.
One of my biggest joys as a mom is seeing my kids delight in God’s Word. I hope this resource blesses and encourages you and your family to take joy in God’s Truth together!
PS…Be sure to check out the new Resources page under Family Devotions in the Main Menu. I have added a current list of books and media that we own and would recommend. Any of these resources would be excellent ways to create family engagement and discussions around God’s Word and to incorporate into a family devotion.
PPS…I am also in the process of updating my blog and removing links that are no longer active. If you have been a reader for awhile (I started doing this in 2013) I removed a ton of posts that had pictures of the kids because of content/photos being stolen and used on other websites. All that to say, thanks for continuing to read and I hope to have a more functional and easy to navigate website for you in the next few weeks :).
