When I was at Bethel Seminary a few years ago, in my Introduction to Children and Family Ministries class, the professor talked about 3 powerful ways to form faith in our families.
She got this information from the Search Institute:
- Talking with Mom or Dad about faith: These are informal conversations that happen in the course of everyday life.
- Participating in family devotions, bible reading or prayer: This is an intentional time of setting aside time (everyday, 3-4 times per week, or at the minimum once per week) to read the Bible and pray together as a family.
- Being involved in family service projects: Serving alongside of each other as you enact the kingdom of God in our world.
