Not too long ago, we had a family worship time, and I realized I was running all over the house trying to find our family bible, the hymnal, our binder full of worship songs, etc. So I decided to gather all of the items in one central location so that I wouldn't be searching in the future. The result? Our family worship basket. And let me tell you, I LOVE it.
It's such a simple idea, but I just love having a special place for our family worship materials. I can just picture our kids (Lord willing!) scampering over to the worship basket to get the family bible and song book so that Daddy can lead us in a time of worship. It brings a smile to my face!
This is a really easy project. All you need is a basket...
I like baskets with liners. They're great because you can switch out the liner for different seasons!
Then add your worship resources. Here's what's in our basket...
Our Family Bible (a wedding gift to ourselves)
A Hymnal (I might have accidentally swiped this from my childhood church...)
Worship music binder (full of chord sheets from our years of leading worship together)
Tabletalk Magazine (started getting this for Dan as a V-Day gift long ago...)
And voila! You have yourself a family worship basket.
What items would you put in your family worship basket?
