This has become a precious part of our day. The girls and I all gather next to the fire. First we all think of something we can thank God for. Next we pull out our prayer notebook. Right now it is simply a long list of names of family members, missionaries, neighbors, church family etc., each numbered 1-15. One day we pray for the 1's, the next day the 2's etc.. I hope to put it together into a binder soon, complete with pictures, but it's not done yet! We take turns picking someone from the list, talking about what we can pray for them, and then praying. After that we pray for Daddy. I close by praying for our day.
Our Bible verses come next. We've been reviewing so far as we were pretty lazy over the summer. It has been so refreshing to get back into hiding His word in our hearts. Remember, even the youngest children can benefit from scripture and you will be amazed at what they are able to retain!
We then move to the table where we pull out the Bible, paper and colored pencils. For Bible, I read a chapter (or section), we discuss it and the girls draw a picture of it. Their pictures will be made into a book.
