Now Enrolling for 2023


The start of the day can either be a drag or a time to get set up for success. Ultimately, it’s up to you. You and your child can spend the first moments of the day with the intention of getting through that first hour or so. Or, you can be intentional from the moment you wake up, ready to start your day off the right way. Here are a few of our favorite ways to start the day: 


Everyone in the family could use a little more prayer. Encourage your child to begin the day with a thankful heart by thanking God for the gifts they have. If you’re worried your child might forget, make prayer a group activity by having a couple minutes of silent prayer around the breakfast table. 

Setting an intention

Setting an intention can build the foundation for a great day. This could mean thinking about the intention, writing it or saying it out loud. Examples of a daily intention for a child could be paying attention in class, being nice to teachers or spreading more love throughout the day. Anyone can benefit from being more intentional in life. 

Reading scripture

In the rush of getting breakfast prepared, finding matching shoes, and convincing your child to get out the door, you may not think there’s time to read scripture in the morning. However, if you and your child could wake up just a few minutes earlier in the morning, you could start your morning being inspired by the word of God. Would waking up your child early be a real miracle? Try listening to some gospel music first thing in the morning as you’re getting breakfast ready. 

Making the bed

Children and adults alike start the morning with a one-track mind. The one intention they have for the time between getting out of bed and leaving for the day is preparing for the trip out the door. Making the bed can put a pause on this process, showing your child the importance of doing a task now that will benefit them later. Starting this habit early will encourage your child to continue taking a moment to make the bed for the rest of their lives.


Another way to make the morning more meaningful and productive is through exercise. If you and your child spend 15 minutes in the morning exercising or stretching before heading off to work and school, you’ll feel much better throughout the day. Even a quick walk outside can send endorphins running through your body to set you up for success in the day ahead.
