Listening Journals

As part of our morning read-aloud and prayer time as a family we have started keeping "Listening Journals".  We simply spend a few minutes asking Jesus what he would like to say to us today.  Sometimes the kids write furiously for a couple of paragraphs, sometimes they draw a picture, and sometimes they write down a simple sentence (and sometimes they don't put anything down).  I looooove starting our day like this - it feels like a thick blanket of peace settles down on us as we listen and journal.  It is simple  (like pretty much everything else I do) but my kids are learning that hearing God's voice is a normal part of our daily life.  Love it!
