Tiny Try-It-Out: Caring Conversation

Taking a moment to talk about your day with someone is one way we can help grow our connection with God and each other. Mealtime is a great opportunity for these caring conversations! Find creative prompts and other resources below to help you share stories and experiences with the people in our lives.

Parents, use your own discretion when it comes to your kids. If content is rated for certain ages then we will indicate that. Enjoy!

Pause, light a candle, & take 15 minutes for caring conversation and prayer.

Share: What were your high and low points today?
Read 1 Corinthians 12:26: If one member [of the body of Christ] suffers, all suffer together with it; if one member is honored, all rejoice together with it.
Reflect: How does it feel when someone listens to you tell about something you did or experienced?
Pray: “Dear God, help us to share from the heart and really listen in our conversations, so that we feel connected to each other and to you. Amen.”
Bless: Trace a cross on each other’s shoulder, hand, or head and say “[Name], you are a beloved child of God.”
