The Power of Speaking God’s Word as a Family

The Power of Speaking God's Word as a Family

When my daughter was born, I was immediately overwhelmed with emotion and the weight of responsibility that came with motherhood.

I struggled to adjust to my new role, but I remember feeling new mercies every morning, as we met the day with a clean slate. After a few weeks of meeting the morning with Hope, I decided to reinstate my quiet time by reading the Bible aloud as I fed my baby girl. This way, I would reap the benefits of audible truth while speaking it over my child.

Time went on though, and our ritual waned as life and baby got busier, and our practice declaring the truth of God’s Word over our family aloud has fallen by the wayside. There is so much power in speaking God’s word as a family and I’m committed to putting this practice back in our home.

Hop over to visit our friends at FaithGateway Family to read 6 ways that I’m committing to speak God’s Word in our home!
