Family Devotions (by topic)

Mealtime Devotions might take just a little preparation, such as finding a few objects to use as props, and work best when your family is sitting around the table after a meal.

Devotions on the Go can be used while you're driving in the car (if you read them in advance or if an older child reads them) or waiting anywhere. Of course, you can use them at home, too.
