Like most tweens, my kids rarely leave the house in the morning without first spending a few minutes in front of the mirror. So I use those brief but consistent moments to help them learn God's Word. Using a dry-erase marker, I write verses on the bathroom mirror to encourage or challenge my kids. They are spending time in the Word while they brush their teeth or comb their hair. After a week, I wipe off a word here and there and leave the marker out for the kids to fill in the blanks. I'm amazed how a few minutes each day help them learn Scripture.
