Teaching Your Daughter Long-Term Habit Change

Studies show adding small new behaviors to existing ones makes way for big habitual change.  

For example, if your family watches TV nightly, but each of you struggle to carve out time to read Scripture, consider keeping a daily verse resource on the TV stand. Before grabbing the remote each night, ask someone in your family to read aloud. Even just the small change of reading a single verse together is a step in the right direction. 

 You may find your family wants to talk further about the meaning of verse or ask questions, expanding the conversation. Give your girl the opportunity to create spiritual habits, together as a family. You’ll be surprised how your routine can transform!
