starting early...

>> Tuesday, June 30, 2009

Hubby is home from his summer gallivants, and we're sorting through that uber-fun stage of getting back on track and into a routine.

We've always attempted to have morning and evening devotions - at least personally, if not together as a couple. But one of our family identity goals is to cultivate the daily habit of morning and evening family worship. As part of our regular routine that never wavers.

And we're not naive enough to think that these kind of habits will come more automatically or more easily after munchkin's arrival. So we've started reading out loud before we get out of bed in the morning, and before falling asleep at night, praying together, and singing a song to the belly.

We hope that not only will it get us into the routine so we can keep it going in the future, but that it will also being to prenatally familiarize munchkin with how it feels to have quiet spiritual time with Jesus every day.

Keep it up! You'll never regret it. At first it felt a bit funny to be reading and singing to a "blob" that couldn't and didn't react, but it's so much fun to see things click for them. Ethan runs out to the living room to go pick his worship book and sit on the couch every morning now. He also loves family worship time right before bed as well. It's irreplaceable, and the effects are eternal.
