LIFE APP:  
COMMITMENT – Making a plan and putting it into practice
DO THIS:

 MORNING TIME


Think of a goal your preteen has been working towards. Maybe something that involves commitment. When you see your kid in the morning, let the first thing you say to them be encouragement about their goal! "Good morning! I think it is awesome you are so committed to ____. I can't wait to see how God uses this talent in you."
 

 MEAL TIME


Q & A for kids: Would you rather have unlimited free time or unlimited money, and why?
Q & A for parents: What was something you had to save up to buy when you were a kid? How did you treat that thing once you got it?

 

 DRIVE TIME


When you get in the car, pick a challenge to commit to for the ride. Like no screentime or phones or radio. Get creative and know you are making a plan and putting it into practice!

 BED TIME


Read Matthew 7:24-27. Discuss with your preteen the idea of building a solid foundation. Why is rock better than sand? “Building on the rock,” takes two steps. You’ve gotta hear what God says and then you’ve got to act and put God’s words into practice. Pick one thing you know God has said and choose some ways you can put that into practice this week. Ask God to help you show commitment.
