Faith-Shaping: Think Out Loud Friday, November 15, 2019
One way to develop faith in your children is to think out loud. Thinking out loud is sharing with kids how you came to a certain decision. The next time you’re in the car, think out loud. “Hey Buddy, we decided not to buy that big screen television. Instead we're going to use the money for a service project. I think this honors God and buying another thing for us really doesn’t.” Thinking out loud shapes the faith of your children and shows them how life and faith connect. And, when stepparents think out loud, kids see your heart and they grow to trust it.
