Building Healthy Families – A large research study recently asked thousands of children this one question: If you were granted one wish about your parents, what would it be? What would you guess was their answer…more time together?...more money?…more vacations? All wrong. The kids’ number one wish was that their parents would be less tired and less stressed. How about taking your Savior up on His personal invitation: Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. (Matthew 11:28) Also talk with an LFS counselor about ways to re-set.   Lutheran Family Services
