Minno Launches the 5 Minute Family Devotional

By Melanie Rainer

Nashville, TN: Minno, a Nashville-based media and technology company that serves Christian families, has announced the next series in their popular 5 Minute Family Devotionals. The new original series, which includes 16 video-based devotionals about the life of Jesus, begins Monday, March 6 and is available on YouTube, the Minno Life blog, and the Minno streaming video app.


Faced with feedback from parents regularly about how difficult it can be for families to pull off a regular meaningful devotional time, the Minno team has been working on a brand new way to have a family devotional. Each new Minno 5 Minute Family Devotional is a self-contained video that families can do from their favorite screen – at home or on the go!  Each devotional plan takes parents on a journey with their kids and covers themes from the Bible that are foundational for children.


“Helping busy families connect with God and learn about the Bible is something we’re all very passionate about here at Minno,” said CEO Erick Goss. “As we talked with parents, it was clear that family devotions was something that everyone wanted to do, but few parents were succeeding.  We really wanted to find a way to make it incredibly easy for families to connect with God and each other.  We have received great feedback on the impact these devotions are having in the lives of Minno families.”

Each of Minno’s devotionals features a short video that tells a Bible story, a Bible verse, and a variety of short discussion questions and prayer prompts. Each devotional is posted on the Minno Life blog, where it is paired with additional information, questions, and free activity downloads to go with each day, allowing parents to take their devotional time off-screen for deeper learning.

“I’m LOVING Minno’s latest 5 Minute Family Devotional. Thankful for a resource to teach our kids Truth,” said Heather MacFayden of GodCenteredMom.com, a mom of four and popular blogger and podcast host. “ [It] comes with a video, discussion questions, prayer prompts… they did all the work!  You just have to gather your kiddos on the couch!”


Minno has released 70 devotionals in 5 different series with the 5 Minute Family Devotional:

·       25 day Heroes of the Old Testament series

·       12 day Big Questions about Christmas devotional in December
