I was recently asked what our family scripture study looks like, and it got me thinking about how much it has evolved over the years.
Each day for family scripture study we:
- Say our family theme
- Recite a poem
- Practice a scripture from our scripture memory box
- Read from the Bible
- Read picture scripture stories
- Sing hymns or children’s songs
This list is something we’ve grown into over time and started because my kids were really, really, REALLY slow to eat breakfast. So I had to do something to fill the time with my two-year-old and baby.
But what began as a time-filler has become one of my favorite parts of the day. Most of the things on this list only take a few minutes each, and they support each family member in their different stages of understanding.
In this week’s episode, I use our family scripture study as an example of how I’ve pulled from different sources to create a vision for my family and how we’ve slowly grown into that vision over time.
It’s the process I’ve built into the Thriving in Motherhood Planner, and it was good to reflect on how much growth we’ve experienced in this area of our lives using the planner as a tool to guide me.
I use the Thriving in Motherhood Planner to create my vision and return to it every time I sit down for a planning session. I use a piece of my vision to develop projects, habits, and goals for the next 90 days.
I use my targeted 90-day plan to create my plans for the next 30 days, and every week I glance at my monthly plan – which is directly moving me towards my vision – while I decide what my priorities are for the week as well as the things I need to manage as a mom living a full life with kids.
Those little steps each week add up to something pretty spectacular!
