A Season for the Family

In this season of constant change, I am reminded of times in my childhood when we had to hunker down for a variety of reasons. These included power outages, snow days, or severe weather, sometimes all at the same time. While these all brought their own degree of uncertainty, I learned to treasure those moments. Those were circumstances which brought us together as a family and forced us to focus on one another, and as the baby of the family, I loved it.

We don’t know how long social distancing will continue, but this is not a season to suffer through but to grow through. As parents we are faced with the increased responsibility of entertaining, educating, and discipling our children. I encourage you to use this time to be strengthened as a family.

There are many tools easily accessible that can help bring your family together in this season. One of these tools is an app called Parent Cue. When you download this app, you are provided with video lessons, conversation starters, and prayers that are all tailored to their age group. You could also go low tech and just read a passage together or work through a children’s Bible.

Leading your kids spiritually does not have to be highly structured. Just take a little time to talk about life, school and to pray. Take time just to be together and grow in love as a family. Don’t miss this opportunity to make memories.
