December 2019 Everyday Faith Calendar

Two years ago, on Christmas morning, my husband posted a picture on social media of us with his family in front of a Christmas tree. The picture was well received and “liked” by many friends. The tree we were standing in front of was in his parents’ church. The whole family—siblings, spouses, and children—was together for Christmas. What’s not to love when you see a picture like that?

Near my house, there is a hiking trail that is relatively flat and very easy to hike with my two young children. It is less than one mile in length and makes a nice circle that is simple to follow. Hiking is probably a generous term for this area, but we rarely complete this loop. There are large rocks to climb at the entrance to the trail and the path itself is comprised of very tiny rocks that my children love to constantly stop and touch.

Children, especially at a young age, need to learn how to utilize all five of their senses.

Kids have a lot of emotions, and they’re way worse at hiding them than adults. (Well, maybe not all adults. I once cried because I wanted falafel, but couldn’t make it because my food processor was broken.)

July 2019 Everyday Faith Calendar

Doing family devotions takes a lot of commitment, consistency, and motivation! There may not be a more challenging time for that than the middle of the summer, when family vacations, holiday celebrations, family gatherings, and just plain old summer fun fill our calendars.

It’s not easy to gather your entire family in one place at one time, but using spare moments to draw your family closer to God is key. 

If you’re looking for small ways to make a difference in your family’s summer routine, family devotions are one way to do that! The Everyday Faith Calendar can be quick—if you only have five minutes in between dinner and a softball game, you can squeeze it in. Or if you want to go more in-depth, you can do that too!

Here are a few summer-centric ideas for finding time in the Word with the Everyday Faith Calendar!

May 2019 Everyday Faith Calendar

The Fruit of the Spirit is a common lesson in Sunday School and religion classes. Children sing the catchy little song, recite the fruits in order, and then ask if "kindness" is available in a fruit cup they can put in their lunch bag.

The Book of Proverbs is known for its wise sayings about faith and life here on earth. We get nuggets of wisdom like Proverbs 1:7, where we’re instructed on the difference between those who fear the Lord and those who don’t:
