It is our joy to present this little free digital guide book to you as a way to integrate spiritual nourishment into your regular mealtime routine.
We say “a” way, because this is just one of many ways to bring a devotional rhythm to your lives. Maybe you are already doing something together with God as a family on a regular basis, and that is awesome! Just take from this guide anything you feel might make what you are already doing stronger or better. Or if you are not yet having any kind of family devotional time in your home, we invite you to let this booklet help give you a start.
We suggest “mealtime” because the dinner table is the altar of the home. As our families gather together around the dinner table, it is a significant place for sharing and laughter, for discipleship and worship, for deepening our relationships with one another and with God.
Today, some of the best moments we share with our loved ones are spent around the meal table. This special daily time of physical and social nourishment together is the perfect place to integrate spiritual nourishment as well – through prayer, reading and discussing God’s Word together, and propelling each other forward as fellow followers of Jesus!
We have also created a full-page packet of the 36 Prayers, Creeds, & Scripture passages found on pages 4-15 of the Family Devotions Guide Book. This packet is available HERE for FREE download as well! Each page is provided in large print so that it can be easily seen and read by all at the table. Keep this packet stapled or in a three-ring binder near your dinner table for easy access during your family devotion times!
