As parents with strong faith in the Lord, we know that there is so much to gain from reading Scripture habitually and praying to God. We read our Bible app each day and we can pray almost automatically. To our daughters, though, these habits are still unformed, and for some, may seem unfamiliar, or even overwhelming. What cures your anxiety may be exacerbating hers.
