Seven Ways to Impact Your Child’s Faith.

1.  Model a growing and personal faith.  If they don’t see it, they won’t catch it.
2.  Include faith in normal conversations.
3. Be well-rounded. (Don’t compartmentalize your faith as one small part of your life) 
                       4.  Be authentic.   
                       5.  Serve together as a family.    
                       6.  Pray for your  children and with them. 
                       7.  Learn and communicate love in their  language.

How can you add something to your conversations? 
+ Find a time. Pick a time in the evening when you and your spouse can sit down after the kids have gone to sleep or they're busy doing homework or watching television.
+ Create a relaxing atmosphere. Brew coffee or make tea.  Play some quiet instrumental music to create the atmosphere for you both to share your day.
+ Be consistent. When you sit down, ask each other the same questions. It can be, "How was your day?" or "What was part of your day?" A little structure helps keep things on
+ Set a time limit. Decide how much time you want to set catch up with each other. Make sure you don't go over. While some ways it can be great to keep talking, you want to make you've both had equal time to share. A cooking timer works.    
+ Try again. Be prepared for the first attempts to be rocky. If your first time goes smoothly, perhaps the second night you may have an arguement. The third time you may feel better. 
Your talk time doesn't have to happen every night, but aim at least three times during the week to stay connected with each other.
