Welcome back to our weekly linkup.
Summer can be a lazy time with hot weather that can dull and drain your energy levels, but you can use the time to build and connect to your faith. Here are some ideas to help turn you family time this summer into faith development times:
- Use the summer nights to play fun Bible trivia games. You will learn more about God and His word in the process. Christianity.com has a great Family Bible Trivia site with free membership.
- Have a weekly, ice cream Bible study social in your home with friends. Have each friend bring a tub of their favorite ice cream. You provide the toppings and bowls. To facilitate the Bible studies, you could have your participants go to the following sites and have them print out the Bible Study that you select and then divide the lessons up into manageable one-week sections. Here are some great free resources to creating home Bible studies:
Ann Graham Lotz’s Free Bible Studies site.

3. Take a Spirit-filled, inspired vacation. Here are some great sites to visit in the United States:
The Holy Land Experience in Orlando, Fla.
4. Attend a Christian Musical Festival. Check out The Christian Festival Association website to find the one near you this summer.
5. Read some Christian Books over the summer. It is a great way to connect to your faith but you can also enjoy reading in nature on a nice day and connect with God’s creation as well.
6. Invite some Christian friends over and host a faithful family movie night, with your favorite snacks, and an inspirational Christian movie for all ages.

My Favorite Post
This quote was my favorite in this post:
“I don’t know what this chapter of your story looks like.
But I do know that we can trust the Author.
Even when the fog rolls in and the mountains go missing, even when we can’t see beyond the next right step, even when there are far more questions than answers.”
We all need reminders sometimes that God knows all. He knows how our lives will progress, and He has us in His hands. I hope if you haven’t read this post you click over. It will truly bless you.
