The Family That Plays Together Stays Together

The ties that develop through being and doing things together will hold the family firmly through tough times in the future.

My wife and I have three children and I like to think we’re a closely-knit family because we do things together – serving at events, going on mission trips or doing projects together. We’ve also made it a point to do fun things together, whether a planned outing, movie/game night at home, or just a spontaneous day out. But not everything has to be fun; even routine stuff, such as the daily school and tuition car trip can be ‘family fun time’. All these help strengthen the family bond.

One of the fun things we have done as a family is taking part in the Family Fun Time photo competition when we were just strolling in the mall. It looked like a fun thing to do and some of our friends were there too, so we jumped in. And it was fun! It allowed us to engage with our kids and let our hair down.

It just shows how priceless family time is. So, make time for the family. Do things together and enjoy one another. The ties that develop through being and doing things together will hold the family firmly through tough times in the future.
