We’ve always started our school day with Bible and prayer, but it’s only in the last few months that I’ve started to add other things to our morning routine. I’m still figuring out what works best, but at the moment we begin our morning time with prayer, Bible reading, and a hymn, and include our foreign languages, recitation, folk song, picture and composer studies.

After reading Better Together, I have so many more ideas I’d like to try. The idea of adding something liturgical is appealing (and a new idea for this Baptist momma) so just this week we’ve added “God is good (All the time); All the time (God is good)” to start off our morning time, and ending off by learning the Doxology. My children love that we’ve added that.

What I love most about Morning Time is that we get to start our school day together, relaxed, and in God’s Word.
