Laura and I became friends through MOMSnext. It’s so fun to have a fellow teacher share what she is doing with her daughter!
Laura started working with her daughter this summer on a daily quiet time that involved reading a devotional book. Laura decided to offer 50 points for each week completed. Woo hoo! That’s a lot!
After reading The Dangers of Raising Nice Kids by Tim Kimmel, she also decided she needed to model this herself.
Laura was moved by her pastor Lon Solomon’s recommendation “Double your child’s allowance in the summer for having daily devotions, 5 days a week. If you don’t pay now you’ll be paying later to bail them out of jail.”
Time it takes: 15 minutes to one hour depending on the amount of reading and chatting they do 🙂
