Parents Area – helping you share your faith at home

At Home with God Family Devotions podcasts

7-8 minute audio devotions with a downloadable activity workbook that will help families:

  • Discuss the podcast in more detail
  • Go deeper into the Bible
  • Act on what they have heard
  • Enjoy related activities

Quick Dip Activities – take about 5-10 minutes each.

Each activity has 3 parts


  • Find a Bible – if possible one suitable for your age children
  • Find a time when the whole family is together
  • Choose one activity
  • Encourage everyone to take part – but respect a person’s wish not to
  • Remember that you are learning together as a family – no one has all the answers, every ones opinions are valid – no matter how old or how young.
