I started devoting some of my time to God during nap time awhile ago and have recently realized how much I miss it! I wanted to start it again but the difference this time was Briella is no longer taking naps. I didn't want to just have her sit and watch tv while I was trying to build my relationship with God so instead I came up with the prayer box and what a hit is has been since we have started it!


So I'll give you a quick run down of how nap time works in this house. Owen and Briella both pick out two books to read before it's time to lay down. After books a read Owen goes into his crib and Briella lays down in her bed. She has a sand timer that she flips over when I leave and when the sand runs out she is allowed to come out. The rules are she has to stay in her bed and be quiet the entire time (15 or 20min. depends on the morning) or she will have to wait until the birds come on-which is almost 2 1/2 hours. We use the Hatch Nest for ok to wake and sleep. It is green and plays birds when it's time to wake and very faint red and TV sound when it's time to sleep.


After her timer has run out she comes out and his 15 minutes of prayer time. This is also when I will do some as well. I will include some of the items in her prayer box below.


*I really like the Shining Light Dolls because they can use them at beginning of when they are little babies and even sustaining through those toddler years of destruction. Also, included are bible character flashcards that I laminated that I found at the dollar tree a few years ago. I laminated them and put them on a book ring to help them last longer.

Prayers For Everyday


We do these two during breakfast every morning.

Here are a few other bible activity resources as well.


Today we added some paper (which is going to be a notebook and some colored pencils to pray to God because she noticed that mommy was writing her prayers. Since, she is not able to write yet we decided to draw pictures and pray after each picture was drawn. Here are some examples:


Germ-God I pray for all the sick people to feel better. Amen.

Family- God I pray for my family to stay safe and healthy.Amen

Plant- God I pray that people are able to grow big gardens to share with others. Amen

Heart-God Help me to love others the way you do.Amen


Watching your child come up with her own little prayers is so beautiful!


Maybe your child isn't ready for this YET. BUT you can still do some of these things with them. I will put a little post together of my faith and things that I enjoy that have helped me grow in my faith later :)


Never feel like you don't have time to include God in your day. A wonderful friend once reminded me He gave us 24 hours in a day we can make the time for Him.


Mathew 6:33

"But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things shall be yours as well."
