We believe there are four spiritual habits that help kids (and adults, too) grow closer to God. These four habits aren’t anything new. They’ve been talked about countless ways, by countless numbers of people. If these four spiritual habits are the behaviors that help kids grow closer to God, we need a strategy to help kids engage in these four spiritual habits on a regular basis, year after year. That’s why we’ve come up with this Family Discipleship Strategy!
In the fall we will focus on the spiritual habit of spending time with others, so this year we’re providing a really fun devotional called Good News Feed to help kids engage in deeper conversations with their families and build more strategic relationships with others.
