For Families

Using July 2018 in your Family

Here are some ideas for using the July issue of Pockets, on the theme of Joyful Living, in your home:

  • Read “10 Reasons to Smile This Month” (p. 7) and talk about the simple things that bring you joy.
  • Read Do 1 Thing (p. 9) and decide on 1 Thing you will do each week as a family to help others.
  • Make the Fruit Pizza (p. 16).
  • Follow the readings from Pocketsful of Scripture (pp. 14-15) together.
  • If a child (between 6-12) in your family enjoys engaging with Pockets, encourage him or her to apply to be a member of our Kids’ Advisory Board. (See p. 25 for the application.)
  • Learn a little about dragonflies (p. 26), and do some more research on your own.
  • Learn about Portugal by reading “Where in God’s World?” (pp. 28-29).
  • Read “Finding Joy in God’s Creation” (pp. 42-43) and pick some of the activities to do together.
  • Try the Family Time activity (p. 48).
