Encouraging Quote: Each day of our lives we make deposits in the memory banks of our children. –Chuck Swindoll #GameOn #XP3
In any kind of competition or event, winning is almost always connected to how prepared you are.Though practice and the skill building may not seem necessary in the moment, when it’s game on, those skills are what will make all the difference. Daniel was a young Jewish boy who encountered his game on moments over and over—moments he was able to thrive in because of how he had honed his faith skills. Daniel’s life offers us a glimpse into just what is possible in our own lives when we become intentional about growing and developing a living and active faith in God.

Here is an open-ended conversation starter to encourage dialogue between you and your child about faith. These can be asked at dinner, in the car, or anywhere that conversation flows easily. Remember to model the way by answering the question first and then asking your student.
- Week 1: What do you appreciate about God?
- Week 2: Where have you noticed God’s activity around you?
- Week 3: How can we make God a bigger priority in our family? (This is a great time to make a commitment as a family. You can choose to pray together or at the same time each day, read scripture, or read a devotional together. )
- Week 4: How can God use our family?
