Family devotionals can be as simple or involved as you’d like. If you’re just starting out, I suggest keeping it simple and focus on committing to the habit of a family time together that’s focused on the Lord. The way you go about can be an ongoing experiment and can purposefully change as you come across a new resource; or, you may fall into a pattern that works for life.
Don’t fret too much about having the perfect set-up, and don’t worry if the first few times feel like they’re falling flat. Eventually, it’ll simply be a part of your family’s daily and/or weekly pattern.
