Broken down into bite-sized, age-specific exercises, the foundations of the Christian life will become lifetime habits. Practice the spiritual disciplines as a family by: · Serving others in a practical way · Simplifying schedules and possessions · Developing new habits of worship · Meditating on specific Bible passages These are essential skills your kids will take with them wherever they go--long after they grow up and teach the same lessons to their own children.
