“Can I play on your phone?”
—Every kid, pretty much
Our smartphones have more computing power than all of NASA had when they put the first man on the moon. Then why is it that we so easily lean on them as digital pacifiers? On this third day of Family Bible Week, we want to help you start redeeming your family’s screen time. Try at least one of these three tips today:
Help your kids fall in love with God’s Word. Visit the Bible App for Kids companion website, where you can download the interactive app, find printable coloring pages, complete video episodes, and all sorts of activities you can enjoy together, all for free.
Plan a family movie night. Pop some popcorn, gather around the screen, and enjoy the story of Jesus’ life together. (Based on the New Testament book written by Jesus’ disciple John. 183 min.)
Get God’s Word speaking into your family’s everyday life, literally. Already have a daily routine? Great! Then you already have the perfect spot to start listening to the Bible together: over breakfast, driving to school, bedtime… “wherever you are.” To start listening, just select a Bible version that has a speaker icon next to its name.
Get my commandments inside you and your children. Talk about them wherever you are: at home or in the street; talk about them from the time you get up until you fall into bed.
