We recently began reading a devotional book with Colin & Aubrey. The Kids’ Book of Devotions has been pretty good bedtime reading and discussion. Love to hear them talk about what they think about scripture…
But with Ethan & Addison, we read different books each night. One that we’ve had since Colin was a toddler is called Thank You Dear God. I love to read it… it’s sing-song rhthym is fun. And each phrasing ends with “Thank you, dear God.” What’s been fun this week is that Ethan has started saying as I finish each page, “Thank you God.”
It reminds me that it’s never too early to begin these spiritual practices with our kids. Many times it’s often Ethan or Addison that remind us at dinner to pray just as Lynda and I are taking our seats!
Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6
