This one is sweet. We’re trying something new in giving Max (7) a devotional Bible that he can read on his own in his room. Then we discuss the end-of-chapter questions with him. So far, so good; it’s a great way to encourage the habit of having a daily quiet time, in addition to seeing if any spiritual conversations would be initiated by him.
One morning this week I asked him if he wanted to talk to God and he said, “sure.” “Father God,” he began, “you are so wonderful. You are the most important thing in my life.”
In a sort-of whisper he leaned over to me for reassurance. “Is that right? Is he the most important thing in my life?”
There you go…quite an open door for a good conversation.
This one is just for laughs. Mini (2) was flipping through a book about the first Christmas story and I overheard her say, “Baby Jesus” when she saw a picture of him swaddled in the manger. Then she said, “He’s in his car seat.”
