A Devotion with Prince Caspian

Here is an HONEST snapshot of our family devotion time...

We try to do a family devotion with the the children every night. (I emphasize the word try.) Sometimes we read straight from scripture and discuss the passage. Sometimes we read from devotionals that are made for families. Other times we will read a story about a missionary. We have read most of the Miller Family books (highly recommend them!), and other times we read through a novel together as a family.

We have just started Prince Caspian by C.S. Lewis. Although we read through the series as a family a few years ago, we decided to pick this book back up upon hearing that it will be released as a movie soon. The boys LOVE it! In fact, Mason and Franklin both have been reading it on their own time and getting ahead of the rest of us! (Shame on them!)

This is the first time I have ever taken pictures of what our devotion time looks like. Tonight, my camera was sitting out so I decided to snap a few pictures...

Braden was very attentive!

This is what the brothers do during our family devotion time...

Mason just being himself...
This was how our family devotion ended. The two youngest completely wiped out from the busy day - sound asleep. Shhh...
I loved this picture of Reid picking up Weston to take him to bed. It shows a father's love in trying to be gentle enough not to wake his son. So precious!No, our family devotion time isn't perfect, but I love it. Like I said, this was an honest picture!

I am sure having someone taking pictures of you at devotion time is distracting!

Hey there I am a huge Narnia fan too. And I am glad to know that there are many more people just like me.
Prince Caspian is indeed really good!
I am eagerly waiting for the movie to hit the theaters.
It has been one of C.S.Lewis' masterpiece!
