Living from enough begins with a heart of gratitude. We’ll discover how God has blessed us all abundantly with purpose, belonging, meaning, and strength in our weakness, “so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work” (2 Corinthians 9:8).

Let your kids talk. Resist the temptation to answer questions for them. Give them time to think and don’t be afraid of a little silence. Some questions may go better than others. That’s fine; just move on.
Share your story. On the flip side of the first point, don’t skip the questions yourself. Give your own answers. Sharing about your own faith, what you’re learning and the questions you have helps build faith in your kids.
Have fun! Although this experience is about a serious topic, let learning about it be an enjoyable time for your family. If this means tweaking the Journey Guide, do that.
