Parents often ask me if family devotions strengthen relationships, and the answer is yes. Family devotions cause us to focus as a family on our relationship with the Lord and each other. They draw us to one another because we become aware of God’s love for us and our love for one another. Family devotions connect us. Today, Karen Whiting joins me to talk about Family Devotions and how you can make them work for your family.
How Can Family Devotions Strengthen Relationships
Family devotion strengthens family relationships in three ways: makes every family member learn about God’s love for them, creates an opportunity for children to share their hopes, fears, and dreams, and establishes and safe place to connect.
Family Devotions Strengthen Relationships when a Parent is Absent
Doing family devotions can be an important way to stay connected even when one parent is out of town or absent from the home. Families will strengthen relationships between grandparents, parents, and children when they aside time each day to pray together, share Bible verses, and discuss spiritual topics.
Making Family Devotions Fun
We can change how our family devotions by adding crafts, stories, and even when we gather together. Depending on the ages of your kids, you can let your children even plan when, where, and how to get them more involved. You can make family devotions fun and meaningful for everyone.
