Each day includes a prayer prompt, brief Scripture reading and explanation, hands-on activity, and discussion questions.

  • Teaching Tolerance

    4 Days

    Our world is becoming increasingly complex, and it’s difficult to discern opinion from truth.

Each day includes a prayer prompt, brief Scripture reading and explanation, hands-on activity, and discussion questions.

  • Infidelity: Obstacles to Recovery

    4 Days 160x160

  • Living Out God's Goodness

    4 Days

    “Be good!” is something children hear over and over again—from their parents, teachers, and even bossy older siblings. But what does “goodness” actually look like? In this four-day plan, you and your children will explore together the difference between merely behaving well and truly being good. Each day includes a prayer prompt, brief Scripture reading and explanation, hands-on activity, and discussion questions.

  • Freedom in Christ

    4 Days

    In each of the four days of this plan, you and your children will explore God’s gift of freedom.

  • Growing Patience

    4 Days

Each day includes a prayer prompt, brief Scripture reading and explanation, hands-on activity, and discussion questions.

  • Showing Hospitality

    4 Days

    Sharing isn’t exactly easy for children (or adults, for that matter).

Each day includes a prayer prompt, brief Scripture reading and explanation, hands-on activity, and discussion questions.

  • The Kindess of God

    4 Days

    Kindness is a part of God’s nature, and as people made in His image, it’s part of ours, too. But sometimes we just don’t feel like being kind.

Each day includes a prayer prompt, brief Scripture reading and explanation, hands-on activity, and discussion questions.

  • Learning Spiritual Discipline

    4 Days

    In this plan, you and your children will explore four spiritual disciplines: fasting, meditation, studying Scripture, and worship.

Each day includes a prayer prompt, brief Scripture reading and explanation, hands-on activity, and discussion questions.

  • Infidelity: How to Face the Crisis

    4 Days 160x160

    Discovering your spouse has had an affair can be life-shattering. The emotional upheaval is so overwhelming the offended spouse often becomes erratic and makes hasty or irrational decisions.

So take a deep breath, and let’s discuss how to get moving forward through this problem with courage and purpose.

  • Talking With God In Prayer

    4 Days 160x160

    Family life can be busy, and we may not always take the time to pray—let alone remember to help our children develop the habit of including God in their day.

Each day includes a prayer prompt, brief Scripture reading and explanation, hands-on activity, and discussion questions.

  • The Ultimate Hope

    5 Days

    In this five-day plan, you and your children will be challenged to view difficulties and disappointments from God’s perspective—as small pieces of a much larger story that God is writing.

Each day includes a prayer prompt, brief Scripture reading and explanation, hands-on activity, and discussion questions.

  • Who Controls You?

    5 Days

    Although we may agree that self-control is a positive character trait, learning to temper our cravings and control our behavior can be difficult and, frankly, not much fun. In this five-day plan, you and your children will be challenged to consider how God’s desire is not to deny us, but to protect us. Each day includes a prayer prompt, brief Scripture reading and explanation, hands-on activity, and discussion questions.

  • Infidelity: Protecting Your Marriage, Pornography

    6 Days 160x160

    If you’ve been married for a while, then you already know how challenging it can be to keep your romance alive. That’s why many couples look for creative ways to get a spark of intimacy going. It’s a great idea. But don’t be fooled: Pornography is never a positive ingredient of a healthy marriage. It is powerfully addicting and will eventually cause a severe breakdown in your relationship.

  • Infidelity: Road To Recover, Next Steps

    6 Days 160x160

    Once you’ve captured a new vision for the future of your marriage, you’re ready for the nuts and bolts of bringing it back to life. The tools you’ll use are things like forgiveness, trust, and restoration. Much of that work will be between you and your spouse. But it’s crucial to start with God. It’s His grace that’ll transform your efforts into reconciliation and healing in your relationship.

  • Healthy Conflict in Marriage

    1 Week

    It’s not a matter of if you and your spouse will disagree – it’s a matter of when. So how you handle conflict is important. Approach your differences with the right perspective, and not only will you resolve problems more easily, you’ll do it with greater love and grace. It’ll take some guidance from God’s Word and a little hard work, but disputes can become opportunities to build connection and intimacy, rather than tear them down.

  • Infidelity: Road To Recovery, Where To Start

    7 Days 160x160

    Once the shock of an affair subsides and life begins to stabilize, there’s room to think more clearly about the future of your relationship. Recovery can be a slow journey. It’s about forgiveness and gaining a new perspective about your marriage. And, some days, it will simply come down to the willingness and determination to keep moving forward. With the Lord’s guidance, however, there is hope for recovery.

  • Living On Purpose

    7 Days

    Think of your favorite song. Boil it down, and it’s really just a collection of single notes. But allow the hands of a master to string those notes together, and they swell into a majestic rhythm. Likewise, a life lived well is a parade of individual days, which only Christ can orchestrate into eternal significance. It’s through this daily walk with the Lord that we learn how to live out the virtues of our Christian faith. It’s a moment by moment journey that transforms us into people of strength, character, and integrity.

  • Expressing God's Love to Those Around You

    7 Days

    There are people in need all around us. Some have encountered hard times and would benefit from a simple act of kindness. Others have faced unspeakable tragedy and yearn for a deeper touch from the Lord. In either case, God often expresses His grace through the love, compassion, and thoughtfulness of His people. That’s why becoming the hands and feet of Jesus is crucial to loving our neighbor as ourselves.

  • Planting Lifelong Skills in Your Kids

    1 Week 160x160

    Each generation of parents faces new and daunting challenges. But underneath it all, the fundamental needs of children have never changed. They need loving instruction that will one day enable them to manage their own lives and chart a course that will honor God and bless others. Because, someday, they’ll have to do more than just tie their own shoes. They’ll need the ability to maintain healthy relationships and to handle the responsibilities of the adult world all on their own.

  • Living With Integrity

    7 Days

    What comes to mind when you think of integrity? Good morals? Honesty? Trustworthiness? Integrity includes each of those values but transcends them all. Our English equivalent for “integrity” is derived from the Latin word meaning “to be integrated, complete.” It’s the idea that an individual’s outward behavior is consistent with his or her deeply held values. And that’s a character trait that improves every area of life – from our relationships and career, to personal and spiritual growth.

  • Helping Your Child Thrive

    7 Days

    Being a kid can be confusing. The struggle to fit in; unnerving changes in the body; an awakening to profound ideals, like love and faith... It’s a lot to handle. That’s why God created parents, to teach children about life and God on their journey toward adulthood. It’s a challenging, yet sacred, role. So this week, let’s discuss ways to help kids understand themselves and discover their identity in Christ.
