Want a Closer Family? 4 Resolutions to Help Build Your Bond This New Year!

Want your family to be closer in the New Year? Here are four resolutions that can help with your family bond!

  • Affirm and Praise - This helps build strong and loving communication – for both spouse and kids!
  • Eat Together - Family dinner is a time to connect with each other, a "platform" for sharing our deepest concerns.
  • Quiet Time Together - Kids open up when they are together with you, doing nothing. Make quiet time and/or prayer part of your daily routine.
  • Learn Love Language - Everyone feels loved differently, so commit to learning and "speaking" your loved ones' languages!

Happy New Year!
