There are no perfect families

only families made perfect in Christ.

Sometimes we see a family and we think, they have it all together. We may even think, why can’t my family be more like that? Can I let you in on a little secret? Someone is thinking the same thing about your family!

Only when we embrace our family as they are and see them through God’s light and love, can we release the unrealistic expectations we place on ourselves and our people. 

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.

Rooted Family

Holy prompts around our home remind us to pause—to pray, to thank, to connect. Cover your home and your people.

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
