Here is a wonderful article on the importance of family narrative. Author Bruce Feiler argues "if you want a happier family, create, refine and retell the story of your family’s positive moments and your ability to bounce back from the difficult ones. That act alone may increase the odds that your family will thrive for many generations to come."
The importance of narrative within a family, congregation, or group of any kind cannot be overstated. For more on the power of narrative, click the "New Narrative" tab above. Also, you may be interested in "A Lesson Learned at the Kid's Table".
Would love to hear what you think about Bruce Feiler's article or any of the posts you find here.
