There are no perfect families

only families made perfect in Christ.

We may see a family and think, they have it all together, why can’t my family be more like that? 

But there is no such thing as a perfect family. Only when we embrace our people as they are, can we release the unrealistic expectations. 

We can know that through Christ our big, messy, complicated love is made perfect.

Every family has the capacity for holiness. When we invite Jesus in as a member of our family and give him a seat at our table, we begin to grow more like Him. When we gather to pray and share our day, we grow closer to one another. God doesn’t care if it’s tacos or takeout, He delights in seeing you laughing and enjoying time with your favorite people. 

It doesn’t have to be awkward, try our 20 Fun and Faith-Based Conversation Starters.

The best things in life are the ordinary moments around the table, the everyday meals shared with the people we love most, a sacred pause to connect, laugh and simply be together.

Cultivate a habit of praying over your home & your people.

May our home be a sanctuary. A safe place to exhale. May we fight for, not against one another. May we live right side up in an upside down world. May we laugh, celebrate, respect and love well together. And when life gets hard as it does, may we always know home is our place to belong.  – A Rooted Home Prayer
