Family Friday: Summertime Activities to Keep Everyone Moving

The Wood family, December 1970

Looking for something to do this summer that keeps you together as a family and keeps you moving? Summer is a great time to exercise and a great time to strengthen those family bonds. Below is an article I wrote for More to Life Magazine that gives some suggestions for family activities.

A suggestion: Be yourself around your family. Let down your guard. Goof off. Show your funny side. Make fun of yourself. Let your kids see the kind of kid you were. Let your spouse see the person he or she dated. It’s okay to act like a nut and just have fun. Just don’t do it too often or you may enjoy it.

One warning: Being yourself may induce laughter (unless you’re just a boring person by nature). If you’re allergic to laughing please take extreme caution when letting down your guard and throwing inhibitions to the wind.

Okay, here’s the link: Summertime Family Acitivity (MTL Magazine, July 2012)

Question: What healthy activities does your family enjoy doing in the summer?

What readers are saying about A THOUSAND SLEEPLESS NIGHTS . . .

I have not been so deeply and utterly moved by a book in a very long time. A Thousand Sleepless Nights is a powerful and gripping novel that moved me greatly.
--Susan S.

A Thousand Sleeples Nights left me speechless as my heart and mind reconciled dealing with the trauma of cancer and a lifetime of regrets and finding God in the midst of it all. Sometimes a diagnosis of cancer can be God’s redemption.
--Jill J.

An emotionally steeped blessing of a story. One that pulled at my heart with one hand while holding a convicting mirror in the other.
--John U.

Great job. I hope and pray this book does for others what it did for me.
--Terri C.

I read A Thousand Sleepless Nights twice because it was that good. A very emotional story of a dysfunctional family, cancer, redemption and healing.
--Pat R.

I can really see how [this book] will be a blessing to many who have to face the devestation of cancer and loss.
--Tina H.

A Thousand Sleepless Nights will tug at your deepest emotions as it unfolds the evil of cancer and the power of relationships. The characters are endearing, real and relatable, as is the true battles they fight: illness, apathy, love, commitment and balancing life. King's novel strikes a vein, and sends hope to the heart of the matter--a fine read for anyone in need of healing.
--Donnalynn D.

This is a stirring novel that paints a great picture of cancer and its effects on not only those who have it, but their families and friends.
--Mark B.

A Thousand Sleepless Nights moved me so deeply I could not leave it alone until I’d read it completely. This bittersweet tale of illness--both physical and emotional--and the way lives are ultimately changed by its effects makes it a story for everyone, especially for those struggling to find forgiveness and healing.
--Claudette W.

A Thousand Sleepless Nights is a novel that touches you on a deep emotional level. It is a beautiful story about surviving, suffering, and what the true meaning of love is and how cancer, while devastating, can pull together a family torn apart by a past of neglect. A beautiful masterpiece!
--Joshua R.
