Teaching Our Children to Love the Lord

This is where my husband has his devotional time with the Lord and he always includes whoever is awake at the moment.

I know I still have a long way to go in raising kids, but at my little Mom's group that I have at my house monthly, we talked about ways we can raise children who love the Lord.  Here are a few things we talked about:

Starting young with our children......always pointing them to God.

Family devotions and prayer time.  Bible time with our children.

Using bedtime as a real time to connect with your child.  Usually this time of night children really open-up and want to share what is on their little hearts.

Having them memorize passages of Scripture.

Being a loving and gracious parent so that they can easily relate to God as a loving father.  Meaning not being to over-bearing and dictatorial. 

Encourage godly friendships and discouraging ungodly peer influences.  Pray for God to send like-minded friends their way. 

Most importantly, setting an example.  Remember children learn so much more from our actions and attitudes than from our words.


  1. Wonderful advice Rebecca. I pray we aren't overbearing. Since we only have one, I'm sure we hover (me more than my man).

  2. I just found you over at Lori's 'To Everything There Is A Season' and I have to say I love your blog!

    We just had our 10th cutie pie!! She's 5 months old now. I noticed you have a "lovey" so do we. How odd is that!

    We have 5 boys and 5 girls. Can't take any credit for being even :-)

    I could relate to each post you've written. I've enjoyed browsing~


  3. thanks for these reminders. Sometimes I forget to keep the main thing, the main thing.

  4. I love you Rebecca! I enjoy your blog lots. <3 Can't wait until you guys get back so I can visit!


Thanks so much for your comments! I love them and they keep me writing. I really do read each one.
