Helping Families “Be” – Rather than Do More

Thanks to our friends at dwelling for sharing this “Fresh Idea for Helping Families Explore Faith Practices this Summer“, from Faith Formation Ministries leader Karen Deboer.

Karen offers six simple practices parents can share with children as part of any day. There are outdoor and indoor contemplative practices that require little to no materials or preparation.

Encourage families to create

  • A Prayer Stick
  • A Wonder Stone
  • Celebration Fun
  • Devotional
  • 5 Ways Tools
  • An Invitation

She even includes a template you can print and share, if you want to create a Summer Faith Practices basket/box to send home to families.

Simple for you. Simple for parents. Enjoyable for all. And relationship building among families and with God. Enjoy!!!
