Seeds and Trees: Summer series

Children are like sponges. They have this incredible capacity to absorb the world around them, learning from every new word, sight, smell and everything else that they experience. As their parents and carers, we are the biggest influence on them as they are growing up, and we have an amazing opportunity to help them grow in every season of their lives.

We can plant seeds of faith, cultivate the soil they are planted in and ensure that they are continually watered, praying that God helps their roots go deep, and makes them grow in their relationship with him. We long to see our children grow into strong trees planted by living water.

This devotional series is designed to explore how we plant those seeds, being equipped as we are refreshed in our own walk with God. We’ll be releasing this devotional every Monday for five weeks, but if you’re going away, or you want to download the whole devotional now – click here!

Read one a week, and reflect over the following days how you can make the practical ideas work for you and your family. There’s an idea for you to try out with your children too, as you plant those seeds in their lives.

“I planted the seed, Apollos watered it, but God has been making it grow.” 1 Corinthians 3:6

We can help each other

Share ideas and learn from each other so we can all succeed in inspiring faith in our homes.

"It was so good to talk to other mums who are struggling with the same things as me."
