Wednesday's "Nap Time" Discussion Question

Every Wednesday we will post a question related to Monday's topic. We hope to start a virtual place through the comments section for you all to interact, share ideas, even pray for one another. Please grab a cup of coffee (or tea) and chime in to get the "conversation" going! 

 
On Monday Dana reminded us of sweet truths in Scripture for trusting God with our children. She mentioned she, "sat with God each and every day, drinking in His Word, bathing those I love in prayer, and listening to His Spirit.  I refused to leave that altar until affirmed in spirit that we had met and that in spite of what could or may happen, I was nested deeply in Him."  As moms we know that somehow our children often wake "at the crack of the Bible" and getting time alone in the Word is a daily challenge. What helps you get into the Word? Let's share ideas, struggles and encouragement with each other in this vital area until we are all finding ourselves and our children "nested deeply in Him" daily.

  1. Getting up with Dave in the mornings helps me a lot. Now that I get to sleep through the night again, and I'm not feeding anyone I can actually do that :) Having a plan-- the 5x5x5 discipleship journal reading plan has been great for me this year (attainable!), and I love Ann Voscamp's scripture memory plan where you learn a big passage over the course of the year. Something about having the structure in place makes it so much more doable-- and then I find that I connect with Jesus while in waiting rooms or in the car or on the go...

  2. Thanks for your thoughts Linnette! Can you share what the 5x5x5 reading plan is? And is there a link to Ann Voscamps scripture plan?

    I'm working on the Sermon on the Mount this year, and I did Romans (ch. 1, 8, 12) two years ago. She has other ones as well, and you could really set it up yourself if you were motivated :)

  4. When my kids were really little I discovered sermons online. With technology today it is easy to listen wherever I am from my phone and pause it as many times as I (My KIDS) need (me) to. :) When I didn't have a lot of time to dig into and study scripture listening to good teaching on a passage helped keep me fed. I like www.oneplace.com
