31 Days of Teaching Kids About Prayer


For the third year in a row, I will be joining Nester and 1000+ blogger in writing for 31 days straight during the month of October.

Over the last two years, I have been teaching my kids how to pray God’s Word by using Scripture Verse and Memory Cards that I created. These set of index-sized cards with a memory scripture on one side and a prayer on the other, have made prayer simply for my little ones.

It's been great, but there is so much more I want to teach my kids about prayer.

Even though my kids are now 7, 9, and 11, I still pray with them at bedtime and remind them to read their devotionals. Eventually, it will be up to them to nurture their relationship with God on their own. One of the ways they can do this by embracing a life of prayer, which is just a fancy way of saying talking to God regularly.

Join me as I write 31 Days of Teaching Kids About Prayer. Each post will be a simple principle that will include a little activity, printable, or game that will help reinforce the big idea for the day.

My hope is that it will grow both their faith and mine!
