52 Creative Family Time Experiences Timothy Smith Reviewed by Rhoda Burrill I recently read this fantastic book on family worship. It captured my attention from beginning to end. As to the end, I think the reader should read the Introduction, then the Peanut Butter Families, followed by the Conclusion. The Conclusion puts the entire book in perspective. It clearly tells you the WHY of the rest of the book. Each of the 52 experiences is Bible-based. The activities are done to help children understand scripture. They are fun and thought-provoking. There are discussion questions which can be adapted for different ages of children, and prayer is the final step of bringing the lesson home. I also liked the format. There is a Family Faith Plan to help you consider the different learning languages of your children. You will learn what those learning languages are and ways to use them while being spiritual parents for your children. Use the materials in this book to set up EPIC moments for your children. What is EPIC? It is experiential, participatory, image-rich, and connected. These steps will help you to reach today’s children for Jesus. The entire concept of this book is based on Deuteronomy 6:5-9. I especially appreciated this as I consider Deuteronomy 6 as the Biblical guideline for parents. God gave us this guideline, and this book helps you to understand it and gives you tools to implement it. The 52 activities are all simple and easy to prepare for. There is a list of materials for each session. Most all items are something you already have in your home. There are also holiday activities. You do not have to start at 1 and go through to 52. Maybe you need to cover a particular issue or Bible story. I highly recommend this book. I will be purchasing additional copies and sharing them.
Great practical tool for families. This would make a great Christmas gift to young families!
