At our last MOPS meeting we had a youth pastor come and speak with us about sharing your faith with your kids. She emphasized the importance of reading the Bible with our kids from a young age.
I have tried to do devotions with my kids on a regular basis, although I’ll admit that I struggle with consistency.
My tip for you today is to share what we’ve used for devotions for our preschoolers. We’ve been happy with this… it’s short and to-the-point and definitely understandable to preschoolers.
It’s called Blessings Every Day by Carla Barnhill.
You can purchase a copy here.
I think the key for us has been to find a time that works. We tried bedtime. It didn’t work because by that hour I’m exhausted. We did it at lunchtime for a while when my older kids were preschoolers… and that seemed to work. Now we’re doing it at dinner because that’s when we’re all together and in one spot.
I highly recommend this book if you need a place to start with your preschoolers! Let me know if you’ve got something else that works for you!
