  • Walk it out Wednesday – Walk outside, around the house, or in place.  Just get moving!
  • Thoughtful Thursday – Think of a school or bible class friend you can call, write a letter, or draw a picture for and do a kind deed for someone else is your household.
  • FaceTime Friday – Check on a neighbor, video call a long distance neighbor or friend, drop off treats to our community helpers at Fire stations, police departments, etc.
10. Spiritual Family Rhythms Ideas:
  • Incorporate bible study/devotionals together.  Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings are great times already built in from regular church attendance anyway, if you need a starting place.
  • Complete Discovery Bible Study together following materials provided; older kids/youth can lead too.
  • Play Christian music while doing school work or having playtime.
  • Watch a Christian film (PureFlix.com)
  • Do a Bible Verse hunt around the house and put in order once all words are found using post it notes or index cards.  Could also use for a Bible Verse hopscotch too.  Review Books of the Bible as well.  Search more ideas on Pinterest! 
  • Listen to family podcast (Let’s Parent on Purpose or of stories being read like Adventures in Odyssey).
