Do you need a simple, meaningful way to begin your day? To spend 15 minutes reading the Bible, singing a hymn, memorizing Scripture, and praying together? The Morning Moments family discipleship cards were designed to help you do just that!
This set of cards is a simple family discipleship tool that leads you through a study of the book of James, a practical book that instructs Christians how to live in light of who Christ is and what he has done.
Each card contains four sections:
READ: Each card contains a short passage from the book of James, plus a thought-provoking question.
SING: During the course of this study, you’ll learn three classic hymns. Singing together can be a special way to build a family culture of joy and worship!
MEMORIZE: Each morning, you’ll practice a memory verse that’s part of a larger passage (James 1:2-8, ESV). Pull out the memory verse card and place it in a prominent place where you’ll see it often. On the back of each card, you’ll find a helpful memorization tool that uses the first letter of each word to jog your memory. By the end of this study, your family will have memorized a wonderful portion of Scripture about how to navigate trials.
PRAY: Each card provides a prayer prompt that aligns with that day’s Bible reading to help lead your family in prayer.
What ages is this for?
This is for families of all ages, with children in pre-K through high school. It's for homeschooling and non-homeschooling families alike.
How long is the study?
That part is up to you! There are 30 days worth of study on these cards. If you use these cards consistently 5 days a week, it will take you 6 weeks. But you can also spread them out. The cards have no dates on them... you simply move to the next card when you're ready.
What if I've never studied the Bible or memorized Scripture with my kids?
This is the perfect resource for you! The passages are short, the questions are meaningful, and there's an answer key on each card so you never feel lost. It will be a meaningful study for you and your kids, no matter how long you've been reading the Bible.
What translation of the Bible is used?
For Scripture memory, ESV is used. But you can read the Scripture passages from any translation you like best.
