I will share with you something simple I did in my home to try to help establish a habit of feeding the spirit (and brain) at each meal. For my center piece on our table I set a basket with a bible, devotion book, history book  and poetry. I am not talking about having a long lesson or bible study but just taking 5-10 minutes to read something that will help, inspire, bless, encourage and maybe even correct or rebuke us. With this basket right in my face at the table it just makes it harder to forget the habit that I am trying to establish for our family.

Over the last six months, I have let this slide but I intend to get back to it a.s.a.p.! This truly was one of the best ideas that I have ever established in our home educating life. I also switch books around every so often, just to spice things up but I do keep what we read at the table to be of the most spiritually and emotionally uplifting kind!

  1. I love this Angie. Putting things within sight, reminding… How very practical and simple and effective! Just 5-10 minutes…

  2. Love it! I am borrowing this idea to be sure! Thank you.

  3. I love that! We have been trying to get into the habit of actually eating at the table. By doing this much, our blending family is actually blending. I never thought about adding our Bible or lesson time to this part of our day. Great idea!

  4. Angie – A great book to use in your basket is Daily Light by Anne Graham Lotz. It is ONLY scripture and each page can be read in just a couple of minutes.

  5. Thank you so much for sharing this! I am starting homeschooling for the first time this year. I have two boys, 6 and 3. I will be doing “first grade” with my 6 year old. I really like the CM method, and much of my planning has been inspired by her. I have been trying to come up with ideas to incorporate devotions/Bible reading time, etc, and this would be perfect!

    • Jennifer, I pray it will be a wonderful first year of official home schooling! I am glad you liked this post! I enciurage you to continue to check out all the links I included on the CM method. GOD BLESS!

  6. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this idea for so many reasons!! It’s simple. It’s effective. And it’s EASY! I am off to gather my books and place in a basket on my table! Thanks so much for sharing!!
