But when used carefully, the web provides a host of options for spiritual growth, including solid family devotionals that can be read online for free.

Below are three free devotionals from around the web that were written with your family in mind. Each online devotional includes links to several devotions you can sample. This way you can read over the material before deciding whether or not you want to use it for your family.

Leading Your Family Devotions

Although technology has paved the way for helpful devotional resources that can and should be enjoyed, consider occasionally taking a break from technology. Look for tech-free activities to preserve your time together as a family. If you prefer, the devotionals in this article can be printed out and discussed without the distraction of your gadgets and devices.

As you commit to your family’s spiritual growth and health, these free devotionals will serve as helpful guides. But that is all they can do. The responsibility of leading family devotions (and your family) is something that only you, as a parent, can do.
