This is the first Monday in January. Many kids are returning to school. Many parents are returning to work. Many of us are returning to the our routines.
Some activities will be the same as before Christmas. They are established routines. Other activities will be new ones that we hope will reach the routine status.
The New Year is a wonderful time to start a bedtime Bible story routine.
What are some benefits of a bedtime Bible story routine? Here are four benefits for the child who ends the day with a Bible story.
- Predictability at the end of the day
- Calming activity to wind down
- Reassurance that Jesus loves them
- A natural connection to bedtime prayers
