Checklist for Returning to the Family Table
•Ask the Lord to show you how to make eating together as a family a priority.
•Clear the clutter and set the table before dinner so your family can anticipate the meal to come.
•Increase the number of meals you eat together. Not every meal needs to be at the table. Pizza and a movie on the couch on Friday night can bring the family together as well.
•Play quiet music in the background while eating.
•Make the table look inviting and beautiful. This can be done by using nice dishes and silverware or by setting the table with color coordinated paper plates and cups.
•Add seasonal touches like fresh flowers from the spring garden or a lighted candle on a crisp fall evening.
•Prepare simple and nutritious meals that your family enjoys.
