Secret of the Hidden Scrolls Book Series: This adventure filled fiction book series contains some biblical references. They are chapter books written for a Grade 1-3 level but I have been reading them aloud while my boys (age 3 and 5) play. The book content has started some excellent conversations and a few times we have even referenced our bible to learn more about what was happening in the story.
Lectio 365 app: This one’s for the older kids or parents. It is an app for guided daily prayer. A sort of devotional and prayer time rolled into one. I have found it is an excellent supplement to my daily bible study and has created a meaningful prayer habit.
Shower Steamers: As a busy mom, sometimes taking a shower is the only time I have alone! I don’t often make time for a spa day, but I love occasionally indulging with these dissolving steamer tablets that make the bathroom smell good for the entire day! They can also enhance your mood or help you relax since they are infused with essential oils. I have this on an Amazon list as an excellent way to treat a friend or send a surprise gift to someone who needs to know they are seen and loved. I found these because a friend sent them to me as a surprise, and it was such a special, unexpected blessing!
Brenton Arboretum: This is an excellent place for a family outing! Spend time together in nature where you can get moving and get away from the distractions at home. This time of year is perfect for enjoying the weather and the views. I love the nature playspace for the little ones, the trails for walking or just finding a chair or bench out amongst the trees for some quiet time with God.
