Leading Your Family Spiritually

“I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.”
—Jesus, from John 10:10 (NIV)

I really desire to have a life more abundant. That’s what we all want for our families isnt it? But where to begin? And where do we find the time?  
Focus on the Family has some great ideas:

Make it fun.

Help your kids explore their faith, with gentle course corrections along the way.

Keep it simple.

Ask leading questions that feed your child’s curiosity and fuel conversation.

Watch for opportunities.

Make simple observations in the teachable moments that happen in everyday life.

Talk to God together.

Pray with your kids about the things they care about — and celebrate when God answers.
