Morning Bible Time

Every morning, after breakfast and quiet book time, we meet together as a family for Bible time.  We start by singing some hymns, then Paul (Daddy) reads the passage that we are up to in the Bible and gives a short explaination and exhortation from it.  Currently we are in 1 Samuel, having done the Gospels and Acts before that.  Daddy usually asks the children some questions about what we have read.  Nathanael especially takes in alot from this time; I often hear him telling Granny eagerly about what we have been studying.  We then have a time of prayer and practise our memory verses.  Some of our favourite Psalms are 1, 8, 23, 91 and 150.  At the moment we are also learning the books of the Old Testament.  The children are very good at learning the passages and Miriam at 18 months joins in with some words from them! It is really lovely to see them reciting God's word.
"And all thy children shall be taught of the LORD;
and great shall be the peace of thy children."
Isaiah 54:13
