Packing school lunches might possibly be my least favorite “mom job” and I know in talking with other parents, I’m not alone.  I’m always looking for ways to make a daily chore more fun and interesting.  So when I heard this inspirational story from Jim Garlow, I was encouraged yet challenged.  He shares . . .

What are you doing in your home to give your children intentional, deliberate biblical values?  Here’s how one mom did it!  Angela raised six kids.  Every morning, as they started for school, she wrote a Scripture verse on a napkin, personalizing for each child their names IN the verse—and put it in their lunch bag.  Six kids from K through 12—that’s over 15,000 napkins with verses!

When Angela’s son went off to the Air Force Academy, she saw a drawer open in his room and to her shock—he had saved all those napkins!  It doesn’t cost much, a little bit of time, but what an influence on the next generation, and the next, and the next!

So true, and what a great reminder that it’s the little things that can make a big impact.

The family—deliberate in passing along biblical values to the next generation!  So how are you doing?

Share this inspirational story with the moms and dads in your audience and invite them to tune in all this month for “The Garlow Perspective” as Jim airs a special series for the family.  Contact me for details.
