Can family vacations be fun?

My skin care specialist asked me if vacations with extended family members can be enjoyable. She wanted to know if there are etiquette tips to follow to make this type of event run smoothly and benefit the well-being of all involved. Apparently, her relatives live in different cities and have a variety of lifestyles.

How many kids don't know someone loves them?

I have the privilege of starting each day with a walk down a long sidewalk right beside the playgrounds of our Weekday Children’s Ministry. The children all wave and say hello, the older ones calling out “Hey, Pastor Caren.” Some of them don’t quite understand the Pastor part, so they call me Mister Caren. It doesn’t matter; I answer them all with a cheery hello. It starts my day right. It makes me feel loved and that is worth its weight in gold.
