Here’s what some parents have experienced during Family Time:
“Family Time was a big hit! Even on the first night we had to get the video camera out to capture them walking on the balance beam in the family room. My husband who was somewhat skeptical gave me a kiss afterwards and said, ‘That was really nice!'”
“Tonight was the night we usually do Family Time but Mike, my husband, was gone. Two kids showed up at our door with a plate of cookies and asked if we were doing Family Time. Isn’t that so cute?! Kids just love Family Time!“

For All Ages
Three of the Family Time Activities books are for families with children of all ages. Each lesson contains a teaching goal, a Scripture passage, and a list of easy to obtain supplies. Then you’ll have the Big Idea, the Activity, and the Application. Lessons are simple but profound! The goal is one high-energy Family Time once a week that leave kids begging for more. Seeing is Believing, Running the Race, and Playing for Keeps are three different books, each with 20-21 lessons that teach timeless spiritual truths and faith lessons.
Bubbles, Balloons, & Chocolate and Wiggles, Giggles, & Popcorn are two Family Time Activities books created specifically for young children. The format is the same as the All Ages books, but the activities, games, and lessons involve the children physically without the need for reading or writing. The Scripture verses are simple and foundational. The first sixteen pages of each Family Time Activities book are exactly the same, teaching parents how to set up Family Time in your home so that it’s the best 20-40 minutes of the week! Kids will be begging for more.
Tried and True is the Family Time Activities book for older children. The format is the same as the other five books but the lessons are created specifically for preadolescents and teens to bring their faith to life. Teens need to be challenged to integrate values and convictions into their daily relationships and decisions. Older children need to know that God is involved personally in everything they do and the Bible is relevant. These activities draw out significant dialogue for you and your children.
