Christian Family Activities

~ Faith Johnson

What can be more fun than doing family activities? Well, let me think....... LOL. Seriously, remember when you were a child the things that stick out the most are usually when you family was happy and doing things together. What a better time to have fun and reinforce our faith?

It is important to have a strong family life that has God in the center. Now the key to having the fun is knowing what activities to do. We have many activities in the Kid's Corner, also some in the Prayer Room. The important part as a parent with the activity is to bring attention to the importance of God.

Take nature walks and point out the leaves that God so delicately made. The weird little beetle that crawls across the sidewalk. In the spring find a dogwood tree and tell about the dogwood legend with the flowers representing the cross with the red representing blood and the 'crown of thorns'.

There are things you can do in the home also. Making cookies and other baking goods, if you put just a little thought into it, you can tell Bible stories while the kids are watching or helping you cook or bake. Just this Easter we made Easter Story Cookies, the kids loved it and they learned about those last six hours leading to Jesus' death and resurrection.

Trust me its worth it. Make family time fun with an activity. Make it an important lesson by putting God in it. Most of all realize that God has commanded it. Deuteronomy 6:6-7 The commandments I give you today must be in your hearts. Make sure your children learn them. Talk about them when you are at home. Talk about them when you walk along the road. Speak about them when you go to bed. And speak about them when you get up.
