What is home? Is it just an address, the place you live, the place you rush out of in the morning and return back to, exhausted, later? Or can it be something more, something greater, the meaningful core of our lives?
We receive challenges that hopefully lead us forward to introspection, prayer, and self improvement, with most of them occurring in our own homes. In fact, family living gives us one of our greatest opportunities for personal growth, yet often we are too busy and distracted to appreciate the benefits and potential of our family life.
