What Are Biblical Affirmations
Biblical affirmations are Biblical blessings we can speak over our children. They are a way to speak life and truth over our littles’ lives. It also is equipping their spiritual tool box so that they will be able to ‘take thoughts captive’ (2 Corinthians 10:5), and ‘stand against the lies of the enemy’ (Ephesians 6:11).
How To Use Biblical Affirmations
There are so many ways to use Bible Affirmations. I have made some printable cards to make them easy and accessible (keep scrolling to download).
- Speak them over your child in the morning

- Work with your child to memorize the scripture during devotions
- Let your child carry one in their pocket to remind them who God has made them to be
- Put them in your child’s lunch box
- Hang them by the bathroom mirror
Those are just a few ideas and I am sure there are so many more. I’d love to hear how you use Biblical Affirmations in your family.
