August is a time we often think of returning to school for children and teens in our families. It reminds us that we need to be leaders in our families before the job or marketplace. Our spouse and our children should not get the leftovers after we have finished a hard day at work. Families deserve our “A” game just as much if not more than our work.
With that in mind some good questions for us to ask ourselves are: What is our plan to spend quality time with our spouse and children? What can we do this week to show them we care? Have we told them today that we love them and we are there for them? Do you know what struggles your child is having in class or with their classmates? Have you talked to them this week about what the most important things in life are? How well have you set a good example?
Determine this week to up your game plan for a better home and family and ask God to help you live it out.
Blessings –Dr TJ
