Day 2: Family Devotion Basket

What's in it: The Jesus Storybook Bible by Sally Lloyd-Jones, Thoughts to Make Your Heart Sing by Sally Lloyd-Jones, God's Names and God's Promises by Sally Michael, a few other devotions, another Jesus Storybook Bible because we love it so much and so the kids can follow along, and a picture book of family and friends that we intend to use as a prayer aid.  
I must admit we aren't as organized with family devotions as I would like to be. Perhaps we need to organize our time better. Perhaps we need a reminder. For my Pinterest idea today, I put together a family devotion basket. It has all our favorite children's devotion books and I put it on the hutch in the kitchen so it is in sight. We usually will do a devotion before the kids go to be if we do one. However, the kids either space out or are tired. So, I feel we can give it a go after dinner time!  Ideas like this that are on Pinterest are so simple, but often very helpful.  We shall see!

Great idea! We try to do devotions right after dinner also. We have tried at the dinner table at the end of the meal, but the children would end up squirmimg or someone wouldn't be done eating yet. Too many distractions!
