Bedtime routines are especially important to your child’s health and your sanity. It’s the opportunity to turn off all the gadgets and electronics so you can share valuable time with your child, and it’s a great time to anchor your family in faith in Jesus.
Growing up my dad always sat down with us 3 girls at the end of the day and read a devotion centered around The Bible. My husband and I have continued that tradition with our 2 children.
The Little Visits at Bedtime devotional book features 105 devotions and prayers to share with your little one. Little Visits at Bedtime focuses a child’s bedtime on Jesus with a Bible verse, prayer, questions to trigger interaction, and a story that reflects everyday situations.
Each devotional includes 4 parts for the parent and child, and 2 parts that focus on the parent:
Let’s Remember: a Bible verse for parent and child to memorize
A Devotional Story: the devotional stories aren’t long but are a stepping stone to parent/child interaction.
Let’s Talk: an open ended question that promotes thought and conversation.
A Bedtime Prayer: a prayer to be said before lights are turned off where parent and child can pray together.
Parent Connection: practical ideas and content related to child development.
Bringing it Home: content for your (the parent) spiritual growth.
If you are looking for a devotional book to share with your children this is a great one.
I love the Let’s Talk and the Parent Connection sections. So many parents wonder why their children won’t talk to them. I think open communication starts at a young age, so I like that the Let’s Talk section promotes communication between the parent and the child. The Parent Connection section is great because so often we expect our children to act like adults. This section gives us a practical look at our children and how they really see different scenarios. A great tool for helping you to understand your child better.
