One tool that ended up being a great success and leading to some engaging meal time conversations is the Family Dinner Box of Questions - Faith Edition.
- "Do you think God still performs miracles today?"
- "Have you seen a movie or tv show that changed how you think about life and God? What was it?"
- "What is the greatest act of generosity you have ever witnessed?", and
- "If Jesus had one message for today's adults, what do you think it would be?"

A few weeks ago I read a quote that said,
"Memories are our greatest inheritance."This rather profound statement has stuck with me and been rolling around in my thoughts. Even though personally I believe our greatest inheritance comes by choosing to follow Christ Jesus, I think memories of a life well spent (following Christ's commands to love God and love others) is a short second. I'm so glad we are taking the time to invest in both of these things with Allie every chance we get.
On the subject of memories.... I recently got this incredible gift from my dad in the form of a different type of memory book.
Also, a few people have mentioned wanting a list of all the creative, family activities we do. If you are interested in having your own costume dinner party, P Day, Father's Day Facial Hair Celebration, etc. just click on the label in the right hand column called "Family fun/Ideas." All of these activities can be found in that category for easy reference. Enjoy making memories with your own family!
