My gorgeousness started something with the girls last year called "treasure box". This is one of the precious daddy-daughter times that he invests into them. They LOVE it and beg him for "treasure box". Their little eyes light up and they delight in knowing that they have daddy all to themselves :-) He chooses a verse, reads it to them, asks them questions about it, explains and answers any questions around it and then they learn it together. If time allows, either him or "little bear" writes it out and then little miss Leelee draws a picture on the card before filing it into our treasure chest (in our case a little red box that seriously needs some decorating). They usually do this before bed time if time hasn't run away with us. What a rich deposit is sown in those few short moments.
I am learning that it is often these small little moments of sowing that can reap the most beautiful harvests in our children's lives. The gift of time spent together. Teaching our children "truth" that will take root and anchor them throughout their lives.
All my Love,
Ps - I would love to hear some of your ideas of how you invest in your children's lives? It is so encouraging to hear others ideas and perspectives. We have SO MUCH to learn from one another.
