Happy New Year!

As the New Year unfolds, I challenge you to make family meals a priority for 2012! Strive for at least 1-2 days a week where your family joins together for a meal. It will make a difference! Involve your children, young or old, in the process!

Some suggestions ~

1.Have your children take turns being in charge of 1 meal a week.
2.Involve your children in meal decisions as you plan your weekly menus. They will be more likely to enjoy the meals you fix!
3.Have a family devotion or topical discussion. There are so many good resources for devotions and meaningful family conversations. While they may not always “go the way you’d like”, you are creating memories!

Do a google search or check out some of the ones I have suggested below.I let my children decide which one they want to do. They will take turns selecting a reading/devotion for the night.
