For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this not of yourselves it is the gift of God, not of works, so that no one can boast. Ephesians 2:8-9

Devotion time

Devotion time or family worship is a very important and vital part of any christian family life, if we want to bring up kids in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour. We cannot save them, but we can certainly tell them about God and Christ, His love, and salvation and teach them to trust, believe and obey God our Creator. Of course, nothing beats examples, (Our life is the best encouragement and testimony they have) but the Word of God is powerful; so we must entrust them to our Children. And besides, it is a command:

In our home we try to do this twice a day: before breakfast and before going to bed. Here is what we have use as aids:

Leading Little Ones to God by Marian M. Schoolland

A child's Book of Character Building
by Ron and Rebekah Coriell

Family Time Bible Storybook by Gospel Light

The One Year Children's Bible by Rhona Davies which is what we use in the morning.

The Big Book of Questions and Answers by Sinclair Ferguson ,which we are just about to start.

Have a great day, Joelle

Thank you for the book recommendation! My son just turned 5 years old, and we are always looking for resources for family devotions. I have been homeschooling my son for preschool and will continue in the Fall for his kindergarten instruction.
