The Answer Book: A Devotional for Busy Families

How many questions do your kids ask each day? How do you answer them? What about your own questions? Where do you find the answers to life’s questions? Find them as a family studying God’s Word together.

Parents have a small window of influence in their children’s lives. By the age of 12, most children have already set how they will look at the world, make decisions, and what they will believe. It is much harder to change these ideas once you have passed this window. Now is the time! Find your few minutes a day. Talk about God’s Word as you live your life. This seven-week devotional will help you know how.

How do you make time to read the Bible as a family? This devotional is designed for busy families like yours with Scriptures written out and options to dig deeper if you have more time. Take it at your own pace.

The Answer Book: A Devotional for Busy Families was featured at the 2015 International Christian Retail Show and in the BookStub Gallery on the Women of Faith Loved Tour.

How It Works

The Devotional for Busy Families is written for parents, grandparents, and others who care for elementary children (keeping in mind that there may also be younger or older children in the home).

Each family Bible study and small-group guide focuses on developing a biblical worldview or teaching theology (the study of God) for kids. Our goal is to equip busy families to live for Christ where they are every single day.

Special features of the Devotional for Busy Families include:

  • Weekly topics broken into five days of family study with two optional shorter days. The goal is to do at least five full days every week, but life happens and the study can be adjusted.
  • Weekly On the Road Family Challenges: Put into practice the things you are learning.
  • Daily “Want More?” box: Suggested extra reading for those who wish to study the topic further.
  • Daily Weapon Check: Breaks memory verses into doable chunks even busy family members and younger children can manage.

These family Bible studies are designed to partner with the Small-Group Guide, but they may also stand alone.

What people are saying

“I really like the conversational, comfortable ‘read’ of the material. Even someone who hasn’t done any devotions or Bible study with their family and/or friends should find these easy to handle.” Jan, Small-Group Leader, Carrollton, TX

  • The Answer Book provides not just answers but direction!

“(5 stars) Nancy Ruth writes in such a clear, concise, relevant way that her books read easily but provide amazing depth. I have loved what she writes and thoroughly enjoyed sharing it with others. It is practical, usable stuff for all ages—-children to grandmothers! Teaching your family to live with a Christian Worldview is such an essential thing to do when you are a follower of Jesus Christ. It makes a big difference to know the consequences of sin in relationships and that anything we put in the place of the ONE and ONLY God is an idol. I sincerely hope that this book will be widely read and accepted by families seeking what is right for their children.” Gayle Young on
