For Families

Using June 2018 in Families

Here are some ideas for using the June issue of Pockets, on the theme of Finding Balance, in your home:

  • Read “10 Easy Ways to Find Balance” and talk about balance in your individual lives and in your family.
  • Read Do 1 Thing (p. 9) and decide on 1 Thing you will do each week as a family to help others.
  • Make the Frozen Peanut Butter Pie (p. 13). Or make two and share one with a neighbor!
  • Follow the readings from Pocketsful of Scripture (pp. 14-15) together.
  • Learn about El Salvador by reading “Where in God’s World?” (pp. 28-29). Consider making some Salvadoran recipes together. (Find some here: http://deliciouselsalvador.com/recipes/.)
  • Read about Brother Lawrence (p. 48) and talk about ways you can make prayer part of the everyday tasks you do. (Some examples: As you cook or clean up from a meal, you can pray for people who don’t have enough to eat. As you fold laundry, you can pray for each family member by name. As you clean a room, you can pray for people experiencing homelessness.)
  • Try the Family Time activity (p. 48).
