Family Focus Devotionals

As a family we’ve always tried to spend a little bit of time each day, together, talking a look at a piece of scripture, or a topic or theme one of the five of us has had on their mind to share with the rest of family.

These have made up, essentially, devotionals – we call them Family Focus.

We love Family Focus and hope you will too! We’ve kept a record of many that we have done and will be posting them here as we’re able.

They’ve been written by each of us, so you’ll get a very different flavour with each Family Focus!
