Making a Family Plan

(From the book How to Raise a Modern-Day Joseph, page 59-63)

The school year is approaching, which makes right now a great time for  thinking about your family plan for the year.  Sound a little overwhelming?     Just take it one step at a time.  Think about what you want your kids to learn or experience by this time next year and start jotting down some ideas.   Having a plan keeps you from feeling to have to cram everything in your children’s little heads at once.

You can take it nice and slow and enjoy learning about God together.

Ready?

List your Spiritual Goals for the Year:

(Examples: Our child begins to pray regularly, he can tell the life story of 2 Bible characters, memorize 5 family verses, make a creation mural for the play room, etc)

Getting Started Right Now

Now, go to your calendar and write in WHEN you will work on these things.  For example, every two months, you’ll learn about a new Bible character.  Even if you don’t have next year’s calendar  yet, start writing your goals on this years and just fill in the rest in the New Year.
