The true meaning of what this time of the year means can sometimes get lost in the busyness of our day to day life. Check out this great article from Focus on the Family about how to create that special bond we all strive for in your family.
Thanksgiving is the perfect time to bring your family closer together—and we can help. This year, try these three easy ideas to help your family thrive …
1. Start a family tradition.
... Whether you're a newly married couple, busy parents or proud grandparents, it's never too late to start a family tradition! Traditions help establish a sense of family identity‚ as well as create meaningful memories that your spouse and children will remember for years to come.
2. Spend time.
The holiday season can be a time of busyness and stress for many families. But no matter how hectic your schedules might be, there's nothing more important than slowing down to spend time with those you love.
3. Serve others.
Volunteer at a soup kitchen, rake leaves for an elderly neighbor or bring a meal to a sick family at church. You'd be surprised to discover how much fun it can be to serve others with your family‚ and how it can help your children be thankful for the many blessings God has given them.Source: Focus on the Family
