Ø Tuck them in more often.
Ø Make sure I always say “Gute Nacht, Read your Bible and say your prayers and I love you” every night to each of my five kids.
Ø Continue reading through the Bible this year from back to front, and actually get through it.
Ø Hang at the breakfast table and talk more without always having to go do something.
Ø Have more game nights.
Ø Have people over for dinner once a month-okay, every other month-okay, for dessert
Ø Keep bathroom cleaner in case people stop by unannounced for dinner or bagels after church
