Lifespan Religious Education
Happy New Year! I am looking forward to the time we will have together in 2018. What covenant will you make as a family in the New Year? Individual resolutions have a low success rate, but what if you create an intention as a family and remind each other of the commitment? If you decide to try this exercise, I would be curious to hear what you decided to do as a family for 2018, or at least for January. So, will it be keeping the car clean, not raising voices to each other, going on an adventure, eating dinner together often, or something else? May your family resolutions bring added joy and fulfillment to your lives.
