The Daily Routine That Keeps Our Family Close To God

Episode Summary

Christian families are often naive to their slow fade away from God. They don’t pray together daily. They don’t read the Bible to their children daily. They don’t speak truth into their marriage daily. This is how families slowly fall. Here’s what we do to protect against that.

How we order our days is how we order our lives. The Bible calls Christians to be diligent and proactive in making God, His wisdom, and His ways a priority in our daily lives. In this episode, Dale and Veronica share the daily routine that keeps their family aligned with God.

In addition to our teaching time, we usually answer one-two critical questions from our listening audience. If we had a Q&A in this episode you can view those questions at the bottom of this page and hear our responses at the closing of this episode.
