Pursuing Faith in our Homes

Last night on Gather Inspirit TV, we talked about Fighting for our Families.  We enjoyed a great discussion on how we protect and teach our children about media and friendships.  We talked about establishing family times, bible study times and shared our resources.  It was a really great discussion and if you missed it you can go to Mingle Media TV to watch the playback.

I mentioned several resources during our show last night that are helping our family focus on keeping God the center of our home.  I thought I would share a couple of those with you today:

A Girl of Beauty-Building Character in Young Girls by Carol Fiddler

This is a wonderful little book that has devotions about building character.  A sampling of the chapters include Truthfulness, Sincerity, Careful Words, Service, Loyalty, Contentment, etc.  Each topic has a short devotion, followed by a review section.  The Further Study sections another bible story that coincides with the lesson for deeper study as well.

The lessons in this book are short enough to be able to do at bedtime, but remember to allow plenty of time for discussion and questions afterward!

The Christian Girl's Guide to Being Your Best by Katrina Cassel

I really like this book because it is very interactive for the kids to do things on their own or with you.  The focus is giving God your best and the topics include:  Use your Talents, Set Priorities, Walk with God, Cherish your Family, Guard your Tongue, etc.

Each section has a story to go along with the subject matter, then a Life Quiz, an activity, a memory verse, and a game!  This book is written directly to your young lady's heart.  I think you will really enjoy this one.

Don't forget to go here to enter your chance to win the SecretKeeper Girl Friendship Kit!  The entries will remain open until Friday.  This is another great resource for Mom and Daughter!!

I'm linking up today over at Seeds of Faith for iFellowship.  Come on over to meet some great Christian bloggers!

So glad you listed these two books, the top one is the one book you mentioned that I didn't get written down. I am hoping to do some Bible Study with my girls in July after we are moved. Thanks for your inspiration!

Cherie, I'm just wondering what ages these two books are geared for? They sound excellent, but I'm wondering if my girls are too young (6.5 and 4.5)?
