  • God's Peace

    4 Days

    God’s Word tells us that He offers peace “which transcends all understanding” (Philippians 4:7 NIV). In this four-day study, you and your children will take a close look at the areas in our lives where we can experience that peace. Each day includes a prayer prompt, brief Scripture reading and explanation, hands-on activity, and discussion questions.

  • Spirit of Gentleness

    4 Days

    How might your family dynamics shift if interactions and conversations were gentle? In this four-day plan, you and your children will engage with teaching about how we can model God’s gentleness—in our families and among our friends. 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. You’ll be encouraged to have honest conversations about the challenges of practicing these disciplines, and through engaging, thought-provoking activities, you’ll begin to view them as privileges rather than chores. Each day includes a prayer prompt, brief Scripture reading and explanation, hands-on activity, and discussion questions.

  • How to Love a Friend

    4 Days

    Learning how to be a good friend is a significant part of growing up. Over the four days of this plan, you’ll engage in conversations and activities with your children about the essential component of biblical friendships: love. Each day includes a prayer prompt, brief Scripture reading and explanation, hands-on activity, and discussion questions.

  • 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. In this plan, your family will see how much God wants to hear from us and how prayer strengthens our relationship with Him and one another. Each day includes a prayer prompt, brief Scripture reading and explanation, hands-on activity, and discussion questions.

  • Living On Purpose

    7 Days 160x160

    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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Launching Your Kids Into Adulthood

    7 Days 160x160

    Do parents ever stop being parents? Well, yes and no. You’ll never stop loving your children. But once they’re adults, everything changes. Your influence in their lives, the complexion of your relationship, even the dynamics in your marriage will be impacted by the empty nest. But change doesn’t have to mean chaos. With a little preparation, parents can smooth out the bumps that crop up when kids transition into adulthood.

  • Growing Through Perseverance

    7 Days 160x160

    Our paths through life are rarely straight. Setbacks will come. What matters is how we handle those moments. Do we get discouraged and lose heart for our journey with God? A better choice is to seek strength for our weaknesses. Growth isn’t easy, but as we submit to Him, He’ll empower us to live for Him right where we are – in our city, in our neighborhood, and in our homes.

  • Experiencing Hope and Healing In A Fallen World

    7 Days 160x160

    No one likes pain. But we live in a fallen world, and the sting of sin touches us all. That heartache buries some in grief or bitterness so deep that it defines their life. Many others feel powerless to forgive and remain shackled to their wounds as a result. Understandably, in times of great hurt, healing can often seem out of reach. But there is hope! The Lord is present in our suffering, and it’s through His grace that we find healing for our brokenness.

  • Expressing God's Love to Those Around You

    7 Days 160x160

    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.

  • Healthy Conflict in Marriage

    1 Week 160x160

    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.

  • Marriage: A Lifelong Journey

    7 Days 160x160

    When we speak of marriage, words like “commitment” and “hard work” don’t exactly ring with fairy tale-like charm. After all, love should be easy, right? Well, the truth is, relationships that stand the test of time take a little effort. But “work” doesn’t have to equate to “drudgery.” In fact, it’s the little things couples do for each other every day that God uses to enrich a marriage. As one writer put it: “Marriage is a journey, not a destination – its treasures are found, not just at the end, but all along the way.”

  • Parenting with Wisdom

    1 Week 160x160

    Parenting isn’t all nuts and bolts. Children thrive when there’s an atmosphere of God’s love and grace in the home. It’s that sense of belonging a child feels in knowing who they are is more important than what they do. And you don’t communicate that in a single moment through a lecture. It’s instilled into a child’s heart subtly over time by a mom and dad who undergird biblical values and expectations with the nurture and support of relationship.
