Bible Study Time with Kids

Hi Laurie, I was wondering if you could give me your recommendation for a more focused Bible time in the morning with my kids (ages 10, 7, 2). My usual thing is to just read a chapter (Proverbs right now) and perhaps discuss it or ask the kids if they have any questions…but it seems to fall flat. I don’t feel like we are really getting any meat from it. We already do a family Bible time with my husband, so I am looking for more of a short devotional or something that I can begin to use to help my children understand God’s Word and also to fill their day and minds with a God-centered thought. Do you have any thoughts on this? Thanks for your time, Sommer

Just a couple of suggestions:

Read aloud from a chronological Bible (helpful for understanding ancient history) — start at the beginning (skip the repetitive stuff)

Read from a daily devotional book like Spurgeon or J.C. Philpot (those are my 2 favorites)
