We have tried, failed, and succeeded at many family devotion plans, family nights, Scripture memory, prayer time, and so forth with our crew around here. Here are some things we are loving in our home right now.
Jesus Storybook Bible
We have used this Bible for years and loved it. Our kids have basically memorized the stories and we love how every story points to Jesus. We attempt family devotions about 4 nights a week. We sit together, read a story, sometimes have an activity, sing a few songs, and pray. This has looked very different over the years but we are so thankful we've taught them and ourselves the discipline of devotions together.
Seeds of Worship
These cd's are Scripture put to song. We've learned a lot of Bible verses through these cd's and even Ren, Andrew, & I enjoy them.
Slugs & Bugs
There are several of these cd's out and we love every single one! They are a great mixture of silly, funny, worshipful songs and the latest cd they have is all Scripture put to song.
Thoughts to Make Your Heart Sing
We just got this great devotional and so far are enjoying it. It is written by the same folks that did Jesus Storybook Bible and has a short devo a day with a verse. We keep it at our breakfast table and try to do one a morning.
NIRV Adeventure Bible
We have had the sweetest conversations with Madeline lately about how to be a follower of Jesus and we wanted to get her a Bible to celebrate and remind her of her desire to know Him. We picked this one and so far like it. It is her first full-version Bible and even though she can't read this well yet, there are lots of little sidebars and sections and stand alone verses that she is working through. We are attempting to both sit with her once a week to read and talk.
Rain for Roots
Another cd we love. Very mellow and all songs tell stories and Scripture. Our kids currently listen to it as they fall asleep.
Window to the World
This book is so good! It is a kid-friendly version of Operation World and has 2 pages focused on a specific people group, who they are, what they believe, how to pray for them, and more. The kids really like to see the pictures and learn.
My First Hands on Bible
Anna just got this Bible for Christmas and it has been a nice change up for our devotions. It has little and easy activities that go along with each story and good questions to ask. The kids definitely understand it, can answer the questions, and the stories don't loose their attention.
Big Picture Bible
This was the first Bible we used to do devotions with the kids. It is simple, short, and accurate! We still pull it out every once in a while but it is great for kids under 4 to get them used to a devo time.
