Recommendations for leading this time:
1. This family devotional time will look different for each family depending on the stage of life your family is in. For example, if you have smaller kids this time should probably be limited to 5 minutes or so. For some this time might last longer and lead to more in-depth discussion.
2. We encourage you to open a physical copy of the bible to read the verse each week.
3. Enjoy this time. Don’t be intimidated. This gets easier and better over time. The goal is to create an atmosphere of worship in your family life.
