Family devotions on loving God & loving people
For only 99 cents, you’ll receive a printable PDF file of family devotions and activities for the entire month of February.
On her site, Sarah says each devotion has one goal: “To allow God’s word to soak into our minds and hearts, and then for our actions to reflect the truth of His word in the way that we love Him and love others.”
The series includes:
- 22 devotions on love with a Bible passage & discussion questions
- 7 hands-on object lessons
- 6 “project” days with a list of suggested Acts of Kindness
How I’m using these devos
I printed out the devotionals and cut them into strips. Then I tucked each devotional into a heart-shaped envelope I made out of construction paper. You can find a tutorial here.
I labeled the outside of each envelope with the appropriate date and dressed it up with a few heart stickers. All of these supplies I already had on hand.
In the dollar section of Target, I found a cute little Valentine’s mailbox. It’s just big enough for one envelope and maybe a few yummy treats.
Our plan is to have the boys retrieve the mailbox and read them together at dinner.
I can’t wait to talk about some of themes Sarah draws out from Scripture – how we show love to God (obedience), why God loves us (because He IS love), and how our words serve as a real indicator of what’s in our hearts!
So, hurry over to snag your set before Feb. 1! I know your family will be blessed by planning intentional times to learn about God’s love for us poured out through his Son.
