{Hope for the Home} Linky Party: Devotional Resources for Families

Hey everyone! I hope you are all having a fabulous Monday! I must admit that this has been an exhausting week for my family, but a truly wonderful one too. Life Action Revival Ministries has been at our church the past nine days, and although the long nights with little ones can be hard, God is using this time to richly bless my heart and remind me of how very easy it is to slip into a "mommy routine" and lose sight of spending daily time seeking Him.

Life Action has shared a lot of great resources with us this week, and the librarian in me thought that this would be the perfect time to pass them on to you. Enjoy!

Together: Growing Appetites for God (True Woman)

Together: Growing Appetites for God by Carrie Ward
This mom knew she needed to get deeper into God's word, and she brought her young children along for the ride! They started reading through the bible together when her oldest was just 4. It took them 5 years the first time, and now they are on their third reading together. I have started reading this book, and it is really encouraging my heart to step out and do something big like this with my children!

The Princess and the Kiss and The Squire and the Scroll

I haven't read these yet, but they are two books (one for girls, one for boys) that are meant to give parents a resource for teaching their children about purity from a young age. They sound like a great resource to me!


This may be a book you have already seen: Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World by Joanna Weaver. As a young mom (with more kiddos on the way), it is so easy to let the needs of my family and household replace my time with God. I mean, they need me, right? Laundry is important and they have to eat, right? Well, yes. But really, we have no excuse for allowing those things to take God's place in our hearts! The words on the front of the book say "Finding intimacy with God in the Busyness of Life." I can't wait to read it and see what God does in my heart. I hope you are blessed by it, too!

Do you have any devotional resources for families that you recommend?
