If you're a parent, do you long to create meaningful family time with your children?

Parent coach Timothy Smith offers you the structure and ideas to build lasting bonds of loyalty through creating fun memories together--in only 20 minutes a week!

Following up the success of his book, Connecting With Your Kids, Timothy Smith's latest work will help you "draw closer to your kids as your kids draw closer to God."

Each of the 52 chapters is a stand-alone session that includes a list of materials, warm-up, scripture reading, discussion, and family activity. He also includes helpful tips for adapting the session for various age groups.

The session ends with a wrap-up and prayer. There are plenty of activities to coincide with special occasions and holidays.

If you find yourself needing to lead a Sunday school class or youth group, this book will save you the time and stress of having to come up with lessons and activities from scratch--leaving you with more time to enjoy your own family!

Are you tired of trying to come up with money, in order to get away and spend time with your kids? In 52 Family Time Ideas, Smith helps parents stay home, save money, and cherish their time together. Each section includes a Biblical verse, questions to cause family members to speak to one another, and a game--from household items--to help family members laugh and play together. While the book is designed for children under 14 years, there's a small section to show how to convert each activity so teenagers will take part.

My kids love the activities and look forward to our "family time". I like how the verse is connected to the activity. It gives our family an opportunity to share how we feel about eachother and what God is doing in our family. I do however, have to take bit more time explaining how the activity relates to our family and God, but my kids are younger and their attention wanders after the activity is over. I think the content is perfect for elementary age kids!
