From the LYWB Blog Team: We’re on chapter six in our Summer Book Club, where we’re reading Family: How to Love Yours (and Help Them Like You Back) by Jessie Minassian. Even if you don’t have the book, there’s so much for you to learn! (Though we’re big fans of Family and hope you’ll grab your own copy.)
Let’s chat about how important you are, big sister, in the lives of your younger siblings!
If you’re a big sis, I would encourage you to get a copy of Family and unpack and apply these eight ways to be a strong example for your little sibs. (You can find these on pages 107–115 in the book.)
Be an example . . .
- In what you say.
- In encouragement.
- In the way you live.
- In love.
- In faith.
- In purity.
- In reading the Bible.
- In teaching.
As I mentioned in the vlog, we’re answering this application question in the comments today (because I love fun stories!): What funny memories do you have of your younger siblings making their mark on your life?
You can also take a moment to ponder these questions and examine your example as a big sister:
- Do your younger brothers and sisters look up to you? How can you tell?
- How would you rate the example you’ve been setting lately for your younger siblings?
I hope you enjoy the next chapter of Family: How to Love Yours (and Help Them Like You Back), “Becoming the Best Little Sister.” We’ll meet again next Monday for another installment of our Summer Book Club!
Because we want to get a copy of Family into as many hands as possible, it’s time for another giveaway! Log on to the giveaway widget below, and answer this week’s discussion question to enter.
