Leading Your Family Spiritually

"I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full."
—Jesus, from John 10:10 (NIV)

That's what we all want for our families: a fulfilled life, a growing relationship with Christ. But it's hard to know where to begin — or even to find the time. That's why we pulled together some of our favorite family-building ideas from generous YouVersion partner Focus on the Family.

Here are four highlights from our list of seven tips. (Visit the blog post linked below for the full list.) Each one is a quick tip that can help you start — today — setting your kids on the path that will lead them to their own "life to the full." Each tip includes a short explanation to help you put it into practice right away.

Make it fun.

Help your kids explore their faith, with gentle course corrections along the way.

Keep it simple.

Ask leading questions that feed your child's curiosity and fuel conversation.

Watch for opportunities.

Make simple observations in the teachable moments that happen in everyday life.

Talk to God together.

Pray with your kids about the things they care about — and celebrate when God answers.
