Bedtime Blessings

For each of the 40 days, we have created a bedtime story video, hoping that families will come together each night for a story, prayer, and a time of blessing one another. The books are listed below, so you can plan to have a copy if you’re interested in reading along. Each Monday through Saturday you will be able to watch a video and enjoy family time together. After each story, you’ll be invited to join in the closing prayer and then to bless one another. 

The practice of hearing and saying, “You are a blessing,” or, “You are blessed to be a blessing,” is an incredible gift and can be transformational in the lives of children and those who love them. As often as we can, we need to remind children of their sacred identities. People of all ages need to be reminded that they are beloved children of God. Our hope is that your family will create or continue practices during Lent that will last throughout the year.

We pray that each one of you will come to know this one thing during Lent – YOU are blessed to be a blessing!
