Making time for the family is the hardest thing to do for me. I am usually bone tired when I get home and to have an evening where we play games together, read scriptures and learn a moral lesson is hard. But those are the best nights of my week.
Being my kid can be a little frightening as you can imagine. My kids live in a world where dad has security and sometimes has to wear a bullet proof vest. They also have to talk to me about the future. There are adults that don't want to talk to me about the future! :). So sometimes it is great just to blow off steam. Last week we went bowling. Last night we had a tickle fight. But never forget, all of the life lessons that will get them through time times in life and marriage come right now, from you.
How strong is your family unit? Are you taking steps to ensure your household stands firm?
Today, plan at least one night a week to spend time together as a family, to eat together and pray together. Get rid of any distractions or electronics during this family time.
