SUNDAYS – WORSHIP TOGETHER
MONDAYS – READ TOGETHER
Take some time to read together the Scriptures provided. You can choose to have a conversation about the passage, memorize it together, or write it down and place it somewhere in your home as a reminder to focus on His Word throughout the week.
**For younger children, we suggest reading from the NIV, NIrV, or NLT version of the Bible. Or, if you have a study Bible at home, be sure to read the extra text provided for each of these to help your family understand and apply the Scripture.
TUESDAYS – PLAY TOGETHER
One day a week, plan some time to just play. Here are some ideas for what to do to play and make some memories:
WEDNESDAYS – HIGH-5
At a meal, in the car, or before bed, have each person talk about their top five things from their day (your HIGH-5) and share why that was special.
THURSDAYS – PRAYER + QUIET TIME
Use the prayers card (or prayers below) to take time and read a verse and pray together. Then, create space for some quiet time where no one is distracted and can pray on their own. Maybe this is 2-5 minutes, or maybe your kids could engage with this for 10-15 minutes; either way, this quiet space in the week is a great rhythm to create.
FRIDAYS – CREATE TOGETHER
Everyone is creative in their own way, including parents and kids of all ages. Here are some ideas for what you could create together and links to simple ideas to help spark your imagination:
SATURDAYS – FAMILY NIGHTS
Maybe your family has a busy schedule and you just need some good ideas for some FAMILY FUN NIGHTS. Try just making this happen ONCE during the month. If you can do more, that’s great! Either way, make these moments memorable and base them on your budget and what your schedule can accommodate. The goal is to not make it complicated, get your kids involved with choosing, get creative and be spontaneous!
