Family Reading Time
The Bible- Our family tries to read a Proverb for each day. There are 31 Proverbs and generally 31 days of each month. If it is the 5th day of the month, read the 5th Proverb. Discuss the scripture and ask your children questions such as: What do you think the scripture means? How can we as an individual apply it to our life? Is there any warnings that God wants us to take notice of? What does this verse encourage us to do?
10 Peas in a Pod- Our family is starting the book 10 Peas in a Pod this week! This is a true story of the Arnold Pent family. They traveled all across North America, often wondering where they would sleep or where their next meal would come from or how they would pay for gas. But they trusted God for His provision. This book was endorsed by Vision Forum, whom I highly respect. I'll let you know how we like it when we complete the book!
Pilgrim's Progress -by John Bunyan
Trial and Triumph- Stories from Church History is forty-six brief biographies for children, Hannula sketches the stirring trials and triumphs of many famous and some lesser known figures in our family of faith--including Augustine, Charlemagne, Anselm, Luther, Bunyan, and C.S. Lewis. Through them we can begin to enjoy the old paths and find rest for our souls.
