Family Bible Reading

As I wrote in the previous post, during these formal family devotional/family worship times you have something specific and planned to talk about.  What is that specific, planned thing?

Here are two possible plans:

  1. A Bible reading plan.  Do something from youversion, Foundations, or Fighter Verses
  2. The teaching the kids and parents received at church that Sunday.  Remember don't just ask your children what they learned or were reminded of, share with them what you learned or were reminded of.  Also, Trinity wants to help you talk about your child's lessons which is why, each week, we share each week's lesson info.   Go to and click on the Weekly Lesson tab.
The time spent reading will vary depending on the stage of your family's life. 
Here are some resources to use:
  • The Bible 
  • Kid's Bible
    • Jesus Story Book Bible by Sally Lloyd-Jones [review]
    • More than a Story by Sally Michael [description]
    • The Biggest Story:  Bible Storybook by Kevin DeYoung [description]
  • Helping Children Understand the Gospel by Sally Michael, Jill Nelson, and Bud Burk [description] [handout]
  • Pilgrim's Progress by John Bunyan.  Read the book before watching a movie based on the book.
  • Missionary stories.  One series is Christian Heroes:  Then & Now [description]
  • Books that are not children's books.  As you read good books about the greatness of God, the power of the Gospel, and how to live out your Christian faith, talk to your kids about what you are learning.  Here are some books I have talked with my children about.
    • The Gospel Primer by Milton Vincent.  
    • Dark Clouds, Deep Mercies by Mark Vroegopp
    • The Most Misused Verses in the Bible by Eric Bargerhuff
