Food, Faith, Friends

This is the excerpt for your very first post.


Ding! Ding! Ding! Dinner’s ready. Come to the table!

One thought on “Food, Faith, Friends

  1. From the time I got married, we always ate at the table….with the tv on. After our son came along, it continued. Somewhere during his toddler years, I realized that we were all staring at the “idiot box” instead of actually communicating with each other. I decreed that the tv would be turned off during dinner, and that we would have conversation and enjoy it. It took some time for everyone to adjust to the new normal, but I believe it made a difference in our family’s life together. I think our son realized how different his home life was from many of his friends. I also remember talking to many of the students that I worked with over the years, some of whom just came to the kitchen, fixed a plate from pots on the stove, and went to their rooms to eat while gaming or watching tv, if someone had fixed food for them at all. Sometimes dinnertime is the only time of the day that the entire family sits down together, and I believe this is an invaluable time for us to bond as a family.
