Family Devotional Resources

One of the great privileges we have as Christian parents is to point our children to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. One of the ways we can engage this calling is through reading and teaching the scriptures. These resources are meant to be a help in this process. Some will likely fit better than others depending on your preferences and season of life. No matter if family devotion time is a regular practice in your home or something you are wanting to start, may you be encouraged to know that when the Word of the Lord is spoken, it does not come back empty. It will have an impact on both you and your child.
