Wait! You’re probably thinking. How are we supposed to read as a family? Well don’t worry, you’re not going to need to crowd around a single book! Sitting in the living room together as a family and reading can be one of the most peaceful and enjoyable things a family can do. It lets you all enjoy a moment of quiet. If you find a moment in your book that you think your partner or your kids would enjoy, you can read it to them. This can really bring your family together as you talk about what you like and don’t like about your books.

So as the nights start to draw in and the season of getting cozy indoors gets going, make sure you take the chance to enjoy some family time. Life can be hectic, and it’s easy to forget to cherish those little moments. By taking the opportunity to spend some quality family time together, you can remind yourself what’s really important in life. Love, family, and togetherness. Coming together under the love of Jesus Christ to celebrate him, and to celebrate each other.
