How to Teach Your Children How to Have a Quiet Time

Early one morning when my children were young, I heard my daughter ask my son, "Is Dad up?" My son replied, "Yes, but he's having quiet time, so you'd better watch out!"

How do you respond when your kids get up before you have a chance to finish your quiet time? You can view the children waking up early as an interruption or an opportunity.

Here are some ways to use these opportunities to teach your children how to walk with God.

• Have a special "quiet time corner" for the kids. This could include a table and chairs, Bible coloring books, crayons and other art supplies, Bible story books, tapes, puzzles, etc. They can have their own quiet time while you finish yours.

• If your children are older, they can read the Bible or a devotional book and then either draw a picture or write something about what they read.

• Memorize scripture with them.

• Pray about concerns with them.

• Sing hymns or choruses together.

• Occasionally, share with them what you learned from your quiet time. This can create a spirit of expectation in your children—they will go to the Word expecting to hear from God. Just don't demand that they "get something" from every quiet time. This can create stress and make quiet time mechanical.
