Until recently in our household, it has been hard to read the Word together as a family. Mainly this is because of the fact that we have two little girls now and the youngest is not quite 3 months...so it can be tough setting aside that much needed time each night when things get a little hectic.
But reading the Bible with my husband has always been something we have done since we got married and so it is really important to us. Not only do we read through scripture together, but we try and talk about it too.
Last night and the night before that even, we got to read with both of our girls next to us...kind of a rare occasion. Some people may say that is silly to do because neither one of our daugthers can read yet, but we don't think it is silly at all. After all, is it ever to early to start good things and practices around the home?
Now I don't want you to think that our oldest sat there the ENTIRE time we read 5 chapters with each other...in fact, she sat through part of our reading and flipped through her Bible to look at the pictures...it's more interesting to look at picture books at this age then just words on a page anyways. ;) But it's a start and we can't wait until both of our girls are reading scripture with us...it will be a delight!
How do you read to/with your little ones?
Thanks for stopping by!
