The Family Meal Table

I'm reposting this piece to encourage you in your family meal time because I feel it's so important! Critical, if you will, to a healthy family life. I was reminded of this when visiting Renata's blog, Sunnyside Farm Fun, as we were discussing her new farmhouse table. I'm including this short video clip to give you a taste of what's in Nancy Campbell's DVD.

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 families really healthier spiritually and relationally as a result?

May the blessing of family fellowship and hospitality to others be yours,
