Much has been written for adults about their spiritual formation and about the practice of classic spiritual disciplines. Very little has been written for adults who work with children on how to guide children in practices that form their spirit toward Christlikeness. Spiritual Disciplines for Children offers readers the tools they need personally-and the tools they need practically-to guide children in Christian spiritual formation using twelve spiritual disciplines. Concrete activities for readers to do with their children are provide at the end of every chapter. Reproducible pages are also included at the end of some chapters. These activities offer children enjoyable and meaningful experiences. Guided conversation ideas are a part of each activity to help adults build relationships and understanding and communicate on a child's level. The subject matter is serious, inspirational, and practical. It is intended to inspire and equip adult Christian readers to begin the practice of spiritual disciplines with intentionality and commitment in their lives and in their children's lives. The challenge is given to continue in these practices until, in both adult and child, they become lifelong patterns and habits. These patterns and habits allow the Holy Spirit to form their spirit and character toward Christlikeness and a closer, more intimate relationship with God.
