Thriving Family: Drive-time Devotions

Posted by Sally Clark on Friday, December 16, 2011 Under: Christian Print Magazine
Thriving Family: Drive-time Devotions
 
Theme: “Drive-time Devotions”
You can be part of crafting our new devotional format! Parents spend lots of time in the car with the kids. Why not use that time wisely? What a great time for family devotions! Here’s the idea in a nutshell:
-Start with a fun (but safe) activity in the car: it might involve hand movements, spotting road signs, counting stripes on the road, windshield wiper rhythm, things you see as you drive by. This is pretty creative stuff.
-The second section ties the activity to faith. This is the meaty part of the devo. We want to help parents translate complex concepts into ideas for helping them teach and talk to their kids. Let’s keep it pretty simple (these are for families with 7- to 8-year-old kids). We also want this section to have a second part to facilitate discussion with older kids. We’re looking for guidelines not speeches. (More like, “Consider talking about topic and asking your kids …” Definitely not, “Then explain deep theological concept by stating X, Y and Z. In that order, using these exact words.”) This is important stuff, but it has to
be manageable, and the kiddos need to “get it.”
-The last section prompts parents and kids to talk to God. Using some scripture here might work, but just some good suggestions for ideas to express are probably going to be the core of this.
Here’s the topic: God Wants to Direct Your Life (He wants good things for you. Let Him be in charge.) This will be published in May (online, maybe in the magazine, too), so think ahead to late spring/early summer topics.
Word count: 150-250 words
Rights: First nonexclusive
Payment: $50 per devotion, on acceptance
Other details: Pretty creative. Pretty important. Here’s the thing: Because this is new for us, it might take a few tries to get it right. But if it works out, you’re getting in on the ground floor of something that could be BIG. Who knows where this could go? Are you up for the challenge?
Due date: Well, we’re editors. Yesterday would be good, but how about Dec. 20, 2011?
Byline: no byline
Submission: If interested, please respond to
Web.Features@ fotf.org and put “Attn: Megan — May Devo Topic 1” in the subject line. (Note: You must include the subject line as it appears here or the submission will not reach the appropriate editor for consideration.)
