Daily Blessing

How often do you talk to your kids? I don’t mean the routine, plan-as-you-go discussions about who should empty the dishwasher and who’s going where after school. I mean the discussions that really matter: the deeper, life-giving conversations that consistently point your child to God as their inseparable Father and their source of hope and security.

Perhaps these kinds of conversations happen less often than you’d like. If so, you’re certainly not alone. In survey results reported in 1990, Search Institute found that only one in eight U.S. teens from Christian families had regular conversations about their faith with their mom. And only one in 20 teens had regular conversations about their faith with their dad.1

Sadly, new research suggests that kids do suffer for the lack of ongoing, faith-building dialogue at home. If you’re looking for ways to connect more meaningfully with your children, bedtime presents one of the best opportunities in the day. With a little thought, you can build a bedtime routine that not only draws you closer to your child, but also helps you instill faith-building truths your child will remember for life.  Read on for some ideas to help you get started, or to enrich your existing routine.
