Family Reflection Video: My Family

inspiration  |  holy-family

It has been said that family is the great masterpiece of God! I invite you to reflect on this with me as I share a few personal family stories with you. Perhaps you’ll be able to apply some thoughts to your own family life.

It all starts in the home; where we learn the basic lessons of faith, love, and care from our own family. How we honor our mother and father and how we care for our brothers and sisters is a reflection on how we relate to others. Ultimately, we learn how to belong to our greater family, the family of God.

Friends, gather your beloved family together tonight and talk about how you can make your family members feel more honored, cared for and cherished in your family. Is it making time to really listen and encourage someone? Offering to help with household chores? Or visiting elderly relatives? Write your suggestions below to help families around the world strengthen their relationships!

Thank you for joining us today. May you continue to spread faith, love and care to your extended family around the world.
