Legacy of Blessing Series: Eating Dinner with Your Family
We are encouraging families to come together weekly for prayer and a meal. You and your whole family will be greatly blessed. Many already have a meal together weekly.
Researchers have confirmed what people of faith have known for a long time: sitting down for a meal together strengthens the family in a way that nothing else can. Recent studies link regular family dinners with many behaviors that parents pray for: lower rates of substance abuse, teen pregnancy and depression, as well as higher grade-point averages and self-esteem. Studies also indicate that dinner conversation is a more potent vocabulary-booster than reading, and the stories told around the kitchen table help our children build resilience.
