ENGAGE IN EVERYDAY MOMENTS TOGETHER
As your kid starts their day, encourage them by saying something like: “I saw you being brave when you . . .”
While on the go, ask your kid: “What is something brave you saw or heard about someone doing?”
At a meal, ask everyone at the table: “What is something that people are afraid of? What is something you are afraid of?”
Pray for each other: “God, even when other people around us are scared, help us to be brave and to trust in You. Whether that’s making the right choice, being kind to someone, or whatever it may be.”
