Daily Cues

Morning Time

Remind your preteen that while they wait for something today, God is with them. Tell them to pay attention to all the times they wait during the day and encourage them to say a little prayer during that time. It could be a prayer for someone else or for themselves to have patience. Either way, it will be time well spent!
 

Drive Time

There can be a lot of waiting during drive time. Waiting in traffic, take out line, practices, and so much more! Why not celebrate while you wait by singing the song from this month. Head over to studio252.tv to listen.

Meal Time

Q&A for Kids: Do you find it hardest to wait for your birthday, vacation, or Christmas? Why?

Q&A for Parents: What are your favorite patience hacks?
 

Bed Time

Waiting can be tough but trying to skip the wait can come at a big cost. Share something that you're having a hard time waiting for. Pray that when you're tempted to jump ahead this week, God will give you the patience to slow down and wait.
