Finding a family devotional that met the developmental needs and interests of all my kids was next to impossible. So instead of searching for one book, I met that challenge with the "Bible basket." I collected devotional books and Bibles from thrift shops and garage sales and put the whole collection in a basket by our kitchen table. As the kids ate their breakfast each morning, they could choose a Bible or devotional to read or look at. The availability and variety encouraged my kids to start a habit of spending time with God in the mornings.
