I have wanted to share this inspirational DVD for sometime, but I was afraid I would not do it justice. However, in delaying I am not getting the word out that this is a great DVD addressing the topic of families eating together, the benefits, and a few ideas to get going.
The Family Meal Table features Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies Ministry as she takes the viewer through the beauty and blessings of gathering together as a family around the evening meal. Some of my favorite parts were how little ones can contribute to the process, how we need to partake of physical food and spiritual food at mealtime, and creating an atmosphere where even the teenagers want to be with the family at dinner.
So many have given up this important time together in lieu of extra-curricular activities and even ministry opportunities. But are our families really healthier spiritually and relationally as a result?
