Personal devotion workboxes
As part of the conversion to workboxes to organize our studies, yesterday I set up little carrier containers for each of our personal devotions, quiet times or whatever you prefer to call your Bible reading and prayer time.
I found the little carriers at Family Dollar for $1 each. With each person's name on their carrier as well as stickers if they so choose, each one has a nice sized section for a small Bible and notecards (often the Lord gives me an idea of someone who needs an encouraging note), as well as a small section for a prayer reminder card or notebook or color-coded cards (I'm leaving that decision up to each girl).
The medium-sized section is for Scripture memory cards made by typing them up in two columns, printing on colored cardstock and cheaply "laminated" with clear Contact paper. I looked all over Walmart for rings for the memory cards, but ended up getting those clip things that campers and rock-climbers use. They were $1.88 for two in the camping gear. I was afraid that they'd be a little fat for my hole punch, but they are just right! Roo decided to decorate her cards with some stickers.
With these nifty little helps, I hope we'll be more faithful in our pursuit of godliness. During these glorious summer mornings, the girls enjoyed having their devotions outside this morning.
