The average parent has approximately 950 weeks with a child before he leaves home. If they have a seven-year-old, they have 400 weekends left. How can families maximize this dwindling time?

In fact, no amount of praying or repenting will give them the meaningful family they desire. What’s the solution? Create regular traditions that bring joy, significance, and memories to family life. 

Popular blogger and mom of three, Jessica Smartt explains why memory-making is the puzzle piece that today’s families are longing for. She highlights ten tradition-gifts kids need most and offers practical encouragement to modern parents to keep on adventuring—even when they are fighting distractions, are budget-pressed, and exhausted.
