Our family relationships are the most important in our lives. We not only spend a ton of time with them, but they are relationships that last for life! 

Trust me, your family sees you at your best… and your worst. It’s hard to be vulnerable with our husbands. It’s frustrating when our kids are defiant, misbehaving, and giving us one-word answers to every question. 

But you know what?

You can still have great family relationships! 

In today’s episode, we’re unpacking 5 action steps that you can use TODAY to bless your family. Five practical strategies that will help your marriage, help you get along with the in-laws, and build a sense of peace in your home life.

Episode Show Notes

Today, we are continuing our mini-series walking through the what, why, and how of the four podcast pillars. This episode digs into HOW we love our family well. 

(But really, you’ll get so much more from listening to the whole episode!)

I cover five practical strategies for how to love your family well:

  • Spend quality AND quantity time with your family members
  • Use your words well – the actual words, and your tone of voice
  • Know the end goal that you want for the relationship, and plan your schedule, questions, house rules, etc. to help meet those goals
  • Seek to know your family members by asking good questions, listening actively, and putting down your technology during every interaction
  • Treat them like a chosen, beloved child of God – live out Colossians 3:12-17 with them.
