Family Devotional Ideas

Family devotional plans and ideas abound!
Where do you even begin?
I’m glad you asked.
Here are some of my favourites:

YouVersion Plans:

I love YouVersion plans because they are easily accessible on a computer, phone or tablet – and they’re completely free! Talk about convenient!

Learning Spiritual Disciplines

Why Do I Need Jesus?

Jesus Centered Family Devotions

I Can Learn the Bible: The Joshua Code for Kids

Growing in Truth for Kids

  • If you use the Bible App for Kids, YouVersion also has week-long plans that go along with each story in the app. Just punch “Bible App for Kids” into the search bar, and you’ll be able to find a ton of plans! These are great for smaller kids.
  • If your kids are older (preteens or teenagers), choose a plan together and have each person subscribe to it on your device! Challenge them to read it each day, then during your devotional time, discuss what you learned together.
