ENGAGE IN EVERYDAY MOMENTS TOGETHER
As your kid starts their day, find a way to do something extra special one morning this week (special breakfast, a note in the school bag, etc.).
While on the go, make a game of how many places you can let someone in front of you— either in traffic or in line for the bus, in the drive-thru, or in the grocery check-out line.
Have everyone at the table respond to this at a meal: “Tell us about a time when you or someone else put others first.”
Pray for each other: “Jesus, help us to love other people the way You love us. Help us sometimes say ‘no’ to things we want to do and say ‘yes’ to what others need.”
