The family that prays together, stays together. God's desire is to be the center of our marriage and family. When everything is going well, we should praise Him. When things are tough, we should run to Him. When we need direction, we should seek Him.
Take time this week to pray with your wife each day for your marriage and children. The more time we spend together in prayer, the stronger our relationship will grow with each other and with God.
The kitchen is the center of many of the family's activities. Ask your wife if there are any changes she would like to make to the kitchen. Maybe she needs a new small appliance, some organization, cleaning, or even a small remodeling project.
We just moved and have spent a lot of time organizing the kitchen and pantry. Take time this week to start on improving the kitchen and show your wife that you value her and want to help make her life better.
Take time this week to stop and enjoy the world around you. Find something beautiful, take a picture and send it to your wife. Let her know how it reminds you of her. For bonus points, repeat several times throughout the week.
Spending time together as a whole family is important to build unity and bonding. One easy way is to set aside nights to read together. Reading aloud a classic family book is an old school way to help get everyone on the same page. Discussing the story line and lessons that can apply to real life are great ways to instill character.
As we celebrate fathers across our nation, take time to evaluate yourself. If you have children, what areas do you need to work on?
Find 2-3 things you need to improve on as a father and focus on them for the next 21 days.
Happy Father's Day!!
The kids are out of school and summer is in full swing. Review all your plans: vacation, summer camps, Vacation Bible School, adventures.... discuss what you want to do and make any final decisions for this to be a summer to remember.
Memories are the one thing that will last a lifetime, don't miss the opportunity to make the most of this summer.
If your wife takes care of the laundry, time this week to help out or even take over. If you don't have much experience, you may want some assistance in sorting, what cycle to wash on, and what items need to be air dried. Don't forget to fold and put it all away after you are done.
If you do the laundry, take over something else she normally does to give her a break.
