Spiritual Disciplines For Children:
Fostering Godly Habits That Will Last A Lifetime

We are excited to share this resource with you to aid you on your journey to train your children up in the Lord. We have seven children and know just how daunting a task it is, especially when living in a world that is set against the things of God. However, we take great comfort in the fact that we have a God who loves his people and blesses the work of faithful and diligent parents. We trust that the Holy Spirit will work in the hearts of our children to bear much fruit in his good timing. We pray this for your children as well.

The spiritual disciplines are seemingly a lost art in the modern evangelical church. It wasn’t that long ago when spiritual disciplines were expected of Christian men and women, but now we rarely hear a sermon on them, much less see an example of them. Many parents feel bereft of skill in the spiritual disciplines because they were never taught how to do them. For instance, many have some general knowledge that fasting is a thing the Bible mentions, but often think that is what the super-spiritual do; as if the spiritual disciplines are a gift only given to some, but not to others. This is an area that Christians must reclaim, learn, and pass onto the next generation of disciples. It is imperative in order for the Christian to mature from milk to meat.

Deuteronomy 6:4-9 (ESV)

“Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one. You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates."
