Welcome to the Throne of my Heart
This series is where we learn that God wants to have a Heart to Heart conversation with each one of us. When we give our heart to Jesus, we invite him to come and sit on the throne of our heart. As we spend time with God in prayer, he often uses our five senses of sight, sound, taste, touch and smell to speak to our hearts. When we take time to be still, we can meet with the Lord personally. He will open our spiritual eyes (Ephesians 1:18) and ears (Psalm 27:8) so we can see and hear from him. Your family will be encouraged to "be still" and take time to draw or write what the Lord is speaking to their hearts during this Family Encounter.
My prayer for you is that these sessions will transform you and the children as you experience authentic faith, genuine relationships and real conversations.
Everyone participating in the Throne of my Heart should have a bible with the New and Old Testaments. I use the New Living Translation for all my teaching. Feel free to pause the teaching videos and find the scriptures with your kids or you may want to have them find all the scriptures before you begin and mark their bibles with a bookmark for easy access during the video. I also highly recommend letting children highlight and write in there bibles. It makes the word personal for them and they will come back to these verses in the future. Have fun digging into God's word together as a family!

Throne of my Heart Guidebook is available for you to download to help you navigate through the prayer time of the Family Encounter Sessions. Individual PDF pages from the guidebook that correspond with the sessions are also uploaded into each session for easy access.
The videos are not to be downloaded and stored on your computer. All videos are available to you for the duration of the course. All videos and course materials are best viewed on a computer or iPad rather than a phone.
Each session gives you videos and PDFs to help you teach your kids biblical truths. The teaching videos correspond to the downloadable pdfs. I may also suggest songs that will help you with scripture memorization and activities from various websites that will enhance your sessions.
It's up to you to choose the order of videos, songs or activities but if you'd like some direction here is what I would recommend:
· Truth Verse
· Online Teaching Video
· Heart to Heart Prayer Time
We all need community! If you'd like to have an interactive experience on-line, please go to the public Family Encounter Facebook group and feel free to upload fun pictures or videos of your kids learning scriptures or getting creative with activities.
