February family connection calendar

It’s a new month and a fresh opportunity to connect with your family in meaningful and intentional ways. In February, we will focus on loving and blessing one another through our monthly family connections calendar!

Each month, you will receive a calendar with thoughtful, yet intentional, activity ideas for your family that doesn’t require much preparation and are almost always free! You can view January’s calendar here.

You will also receive a Scripture reading plan to read aloud one chapter from a specific book of the Bible together.

Let’s take a closer look at each of these calendars:

Family Activity Calendar

Included in the activity list are seasonal appropriate ideas as well as conversation starters to have at mealtimes.

These are simple and easy activities to do with your family no matter what season or stage you are in. They can also be adapted to meet the needs of your specific family.

Don’t have kids or are an empty nester? Connect with your spouse with some of these ideas!

Have itty bitty little ones? Older children or teens? There are plenty of ideas that appeal to all ages!

Are you single? Grab a friend or serve your neighbors and family with some of these ideas!

The best part of this calendar is that it is designed to help you and your family better connect this year. So whether you do 2 things off the list or all 31, the point is that you are being intentional!

How to Use

Print off the list and stick it on your refrigerator or place near your family command center. Go through the list today and pick at least 5 activities and schedule them on your family calendar.

Almost all of the ideas are free or require things you probably already have on hand in your home. Some do require a little bit of preparation and making room in your calendar but get your family on board to help with the planning!

You can also just pick and choose the activities that best fit into your family’s schedule and routine. Maybe this list even gives you some new ideas!

Make this connection calendar work for your family and watch how just a few simple activities can really draw your family closer together!

Family Scripture Reading Plan

Perhaps the best way you can connect as a family this year is to spend time reading the Bible together.

Last year one of my favorite books I read was a simple account of a mom starting the practice of reading aloud her Bible to her young kids.

Not a children’s Bible but the actual Word of God.

The results were profound and it seriously convicted me to read the Word aloud to my kids too. But sometimes the hardest part is knowing where to start.

This family reading plan makes it simple for you!

Each day you only have one chapter to read aloud. That’s it!

Five days of chronological Scripture reading with a selected Psalm or Proverb for the weekend and a built-in Grace Day because we all know life is unpredictable and busy!

How to Use

Print off the Family Scripture Plan and place in your family Bible, your Bible book basket, or somewhere you and your family will see every day.

Pray together as a family before you read the Bible aloud and then just read.

If your children are old enough, take turns reading aloud or you can even use the YouVersion Bible app to listen to Word if reading aloud is hard.

Both the Family Connections Calendar and Scripture Reading Plan are free to download when you sign up for the email list and then once a month, the new calendar will be delivered straight to your inbox!

I pray these simple ideas and passages from the Bible help draw you and your family closer together this year as well as water those seeds of faith.
