This journey spans 40 days, a timeframe both manageable and significant. The number 40 holds spiritual significance throughout the Bible, embodying periods of testing, preparation, and renewal. Instances like Noah’s Flood, Moses on Mount Sinai, Israel’s wanderings, Elijah’s journey, Jesus’ temptation, and his post-resurrection appearances all involve 40-day periods that symbolize cleansing, covenant, humbling, and transformation.
This numerical motif underscores pivotal moments: cleansing the earth, forging the covenant, preparing leaders, and testing faith. It’s a reminder of God’s involvement in human affairs and His ability to shape destinies through journeys of trial and growth. In each story, the number 40 is used to prepare people for life and deepen their faith. The 40-Day Family Adventure empowers you to impact spiritual growth in your family today.
This adventure doesn’t just tell you as parents to teach your children spiritually, but we show you how. The interaction between you and your children generated through the 40-Day Family Adventure builds spiritual dynamics in family life that can have a lasting impact.
The 40-Day Family Adventure is designed to facilitate three things in family life:
- Building relationship
- Sharing scripture
- Practicing faith.
We’re inviting you to set aside 20-30 minutes each week for a “Family Time” to begin to work on these goals.
Many young people today grow up to be successful in the world’s eyes but are unhappy, unfulfilled, and unsatisfied inside. Instead of drawing on the spiritual resources they could have learned growing up, they rely on substances, wealth, or power to try to meet those inner needs. Their own families then experience tremendous pressure and a negative intergenerational cycle develops.
God has a better way. When parents pass the faith on to their children, kids learn what living for God looks like in practical ways. They experience God’s grace on a daily basis and understand the peace that God provides. Success has more to do with right relationship with God instead of accomplishments or the approval of others.
