Family Devotional, vol. 1

Family Devotional website image

We have been thinking for some time now how best we could help our young families get acquainted with the regular practice of family devotions and family worship. We started last month by getting some of our young dads together to share experiences and common practices of how to raise our children in the fear and admonition of the Lord. This month, we're releasing our first family devotional guide.

This guide will take your kids through the beatitudes of Matthew 5:3-12. Several months ago I preached through each beatitude, so if you need a refresher head over to the "Resources" section of our website and there you will find those sermons. These devotions are based on those sermons, and they're are attempt to distill them for your children. In addition, you will find in the guide a hymn that we are recommending you teach to your children.
